crazy, weird, UNIQUE!


It’s that time of year again when everyone starts talking about their list of resolutions.

The resolution word kind of makes me *sigh* with disgust.  I’m certain, mostly because there are so many resolutions in the past that have gone awry.  They disappeared almost the minute they were made.  I’m not saying all of them did, but there are so many repeated ones that are made and for what reason?  –to just break them again?


Dictionary dot com has a list of ways to define the word, but here’s the one I’m referring to today:

resolve; a decision or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.

We resolve to do so many things in our lives…

We want to lose weight.  We want to smile more.  We buy better food in order to eat “cleaner.”  We resolve to be nicer, love more and eat the salad instead of the whatever.  Maybe you want to make your bed everyday or make sure your dishes are clean at night.  Perhaps you want to be a better husband, wife, mother, son or daughter.

WHATEVER your resolution or list of resolutions are … I challenge you to make at least ONE of those MORE than a resolution.  Let’s make a PROMISE.

a declaration that something will or will not be done, given, etc., byone

Let’s not flippantly decide we *might* do something better this year.  Let’s PROMISE that we will strive to become better at ________________ or show others more _______________.

Let’s improve, develop, achieve, enhance and UPGRADE our lives.  Promise to do something POSITIVE this coming year.  Don’t resolve to make it happen…PROMISE!

Here are some examples:


Go to GOD first in any situation (especially the crazy ones!) and not try to figure it out myself.

Be a positive example for those around me even when gossip seems to be the topic of the conversation.

Show LOVE before any other thing in any circumstance.

Yell less and speak words of happiness more.


Point to the positive and not the negative.

Seek HIM.

Don’t just resolve …PROMISE.
