My friend, Sean Palmer, wrote a blog post last year talking about the importance of making goals instead of making New Year’s resolutions.
This year, I am following his advice.
I have made several goals and written them down. I am not going to share all of them with you, but I will share one.
I want to make better use of my blog. My goal is to write and post more consistently.
This is where I would like your help: what would make this blog beneficial for you? What topics would you like me to address? For those of you who have been reading, what can I do better?
My desire for my blog is to address issues focusing on the themes of grace and community. I also wish to address how privilege affects all of us; whether we are among the privileged or the oppressed. Since this last year provided a transition from finishing my Master’s degree to starting my new career, I would like to address issues surrounding the economy and job market—specifically here in Abilene.
January 1 is an arbitrary day for new beginnings, yet it is an arbitrary day recognized by most as the beginning of a new year. I am striving to make this year one in which I can make a difference. I want this year to be one in which I help build up the Kingdom of God.
I want it to be a year of loving and serving others.
I want to share my story with you; and have you share your stories with me.
I look forward to this next chapter of my journey. I appreciate all who walk along with me.
God bless you in 2014!
