2016 is here! How is it going thus far? If you are like me, your New Year’s resolution might be a work in progress in your mind versus an actual resolution. I am still fleshing out what I am thinking I would like to do this year, hence this blog. The good news is I am thinking about it.
Now, some take an entirely different approach to New Year’s resolutions. For instance, my sister-in-law said she is going to focus on doing things that are spiritual. For her, the New Year is a chance to refocus on her relationship with God and how that impacts others in her life. I like it! I see that as kind of like a pre-Lenten commitment plan. Still, others tend to typically focus on self-transformation such as with their body image and physical health. This is very good as we must always remember that our “bodies are temples of the holy spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). But we must also remember, as St. Paul exhorted St. Timothy, that physical exercises have limited value compared to the spiritual (1 Timothy 4:8).
