Moving forward on my own is a lot easier than moving forward in a group situation. Still, any movement on my part can trip other people close to me, or even stop their forward progress. So the best way for me to move forward is to let everyone around me know that:
1. I am contemplating a move. How will this affect you?
2. The move will happen sooner or later, but I want it to happen eventually.
3. I would love to share the adventure, but I understand if you are only interested in being a spectator.
(Can you tell I’m a middle child?)
And from Karen Beattie, author of Rock-Bottom Blessings:
Lately, I don’t seem to have any sense of where God is in my life. Moving forward, I want to slow down and become more aware of God by practicing the Daily Examen to help me prayerfully reflect on the day and see God’s hand at work.
As I get older, I feel like my body is betraying me, and that I’m losing control over what I look like and how I feel. In 2013 I’m hoping to start taking control by running a few miles three times a week and maybe run a 5k or 10k race.
My family is so busy that we often just throw meals together at the last minute. I’m hoping to plan better, cook more, and be more intentional about what we eat.
