You’ve seen it. You’ve read it. You’ve lived it yourself. This is the month when people all over the Internet reflect back on the year past and anticipate the year to come. There are apps and photos and collages and quotes, all about the things we’ve done and the places we’ll go. I get it. I don’t have a problem with looking back and looking forward. My blog was built on the idea. But I also think it’s important to live right now, right where we are. I’m preaching to myself, too.
So let’s give December its due diligence. It’s not too late to set some goals for 2013 and actually meet them. You have thirty-one days to change the way things are. Read a book. Paint a room. Sit down and drink your coffee hot. Spring clean your house. Learn a new recipe. Have a date night. Memorize a piece of Scripture. Let’s send this year out with a bang, shall we? Let’s make this month count.
