New Years Resolution

Ok so everyone has a New Years Resolution right? Well maybe not.  My older sister asked me a few days before New Years what my resolution was going to be this year.  I had no idea, honestly I hadn't even thought about it.  I don't need to lose weight. I don't want to change my eating habits.  I don't smoke, so no need to quit.  I make good grades...I read my Bible...I could say I want to write more regularly in this blog but I don't think I could stick to it with my crazy schedule.  Why set myself up for failure? haha.  I just couldn't think of anything I really wanted to commit to changing until today.  My lovely roommate shared this blog post with me, I'm Christian, unless you're gay and I loved it and think it's important to share with you all.  I may or may not agree with everything said but I do think its underlying message is an important one, to love everyone especially the people you think its impossible to do so.

I sometimes struggle with this.  Not so much with loving people who are gay because I honestly do but I struggle with loving people who hurt me.  And I mean hurt me so bad that I can't stand the idea of even being around them.  I feel like whenever I'm in their presence I'm just brought down when I know I shouldn't be.  I don't know how I'm supposed to love them when this is how I feel with just the mention of their name but I'm going to work on it.  So my New Years Resolution is decided and it's not just a New Years Resolution but a Life Resolution to love others like Jesus loves me.  I'm going to work hard at opening up my heart and turing the exclusive group of people that I love into an all inclusive group.  This is a life long challenge that I think is worth all of us pursuing.
