I seem to always be making resolutions. They last about as long as it takes me to say them. Last year was a first for me. Last December, I had enough. I knew I needed help with my exercise routine so I hired a personal trainer 2 days a week. I have only lost 25 pounds since last January but I feel so much better and I am stronger. I will continue my exercise plan, but this is not the focus of my #nerdlution. I have always loved writing, cannot tell you the last time I wrote for fun. As a child, I loved writing stories and journaling. I need to start that again. So I pledge to write something every day. Even if it’s just a paragraph or story idea. It could be a short note about something that happened in my classroom or in my life outside of school. Another personal goal I have is to carve out more time for my faith. I am a Christian and I have fallen out of the habit of setting aside time to read God’s Word. It seems to be something I do right before I go to sleep or as I get ready in the morning. I can tell you, it’s not enough time to read much. 🙂 This is what grounds me and keeps me sane when the rest of the world is falling around me. So I pledge to spend at least 15 minutes reading my Bible, praying or resting in His presence- knowing He is God. 🙂 I know when I do this, everything else falls into perspective for me.
Here’s my plan to help myself. I will put my writing notebook on my computer where I spend lots of time on twitter. 🙂 It will remind me to complete my obligations first and then I can play. 🙂 Good luck everyone!
