The Story of 2012

In June I attended a two day conference called The Storyline Conference in Portland.  Basically the idea is to think of your life as a story and if it were a story, what would you want that story to be?

When I wrote the recap of 2011, I found myself thinking of the story.  There were ups and downs but overall, I made progress.  So I want to tell the story of 2012.  I know that the reality will end up being different but that’s okay. 

Starting on New Year’s Day I will begin the practice of daily devotion by using the devotional we got at church.  This will center my day and give the first part of it to God.  I will make coffee and breakfast at home and do my devotion before I leave in the morning.  I will also use this as the inspiration for weekly blog posts during the year.

Each day I will also track my food and I will exercise 4-5 times per week.  As I get stronger with my running and working out I will take on new challenges.  One of the challenges will be a 10k run.  At some point in the year I will not only be able to show my progress through a fitness goal, but I will make it into onederland.  At that point I will need to update my wardrobe so I will celebrate with a trip to the United States to shop.

Throughout the year I will actively work to be an encouragement to others.  I will do this both in the areas of fitness and faith.  I will reach out through Facebook, this blog, and in person.  I will be honest about my struggles in an effort to allow others to be honest.  I will listen for God’s leading to where He wants me to help others.
