let’s make it count


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.

  1. So with you on this one!!!! We just put in place a new family chore chart and this month we are gonna make our tiny space, 600 sqft, work for 2 adults, a 17 yr old, 2 small girls AND a new one on the way in Spring. Watch out December!!

  2. This is EXACTLY what I needed to hear today! Last night I started the She Reads Truth Advent plan – I didn’t originally plan on doing an Advent plan at all, but when I found the SRT one, I just knew. I’m excited to make December count, especially since I get to finish it with my birthday on New Year’s Eve! Thank you for your sweet encouragement!

  3. I’m catching up on blogs and found your post through Naptime Diaries. Love to see the way people are similarly inspired at the same time.. My husband just wrote about this exact sentiment this last week! Here’s to a productive end to 2013! :)
