This year, I'm setting intentions. I'm sure I'll add to them throughout the year and possible fail to complete what I intend to do. 2014 will be the year of intentions, both my and God's of course. 2013 ended up being the surprise year of my life, so I'm sure God has a few surprises in store for me this year too.
Here are the things I intend to do in 2014!!!!
I intend to expand my vocabulary. After reading *THIS* article I realize how DUMB I choose to sound. Totes, amazeballs and I KNOW, right are getting the boot [unless I'm impersonating someone] and I intend to try to add some new words to my repertoire. Hopefully *THIS* website can help a sister out.
I intend to master two intricate recipes that I can whip up for a formal dinner gathering. I'm thinking of looking to Julia Child, for a bit of help. Right now the two recipes I intend to master are Julia's Beef Bourguignon and French Onion Soup.
I intend to learn how to grant people grace. I'm not perfect, so I need to recognize that others aren't either.
I intend to figure out what I want to do next in life job-wise. There needs to be a change, I just don't know what it will yet. That needs to change.
I intend to read devotionals every other month. I know I can't commit to a monthly devotional, I get too distracted [bad on me of course], but figure two months to complete one devotional should be adequate time.
I intend to stretch and take deep breaths daily. Flexibility is key in life, as is remaining calm. These two intentions should serve me well in the future.
What are your intentions/resolutions/thoughts for the New Year?!?!
