Today’s post is going to be a little more real. I want to let my guard down and talk about my new year’s resolutions, which tie a little into the name of this blog. I wanted my new year’s resolutions this year to not be about the usual “new years resolutions”, such as working out more, losing weight, saving money, or about other physical things. Yes, those are good goals and I applaud anyone who has goals such as those, but I wanted this year for me to be deeper than surface level goals.
I started this blog to keep me on track with the things that matter most to me, and I chose this name for my blog because that is what I want to focus on. I want to simply focus on the joy of being, the joy of existing, and finding joy in whatever comes my way. This is what I like to think of as the simple joy of being.
I want to tell y’all about my main resolution for 2018, which is to simply be more. Be more kind. Be more patient. Be more present, be more welcoming, be more thankful. I want to really be who I am meant to be and who God intended me to be, which is more than I am now. I want to be more driven, be more determined, be more honest with myself. I want to be more excited about the small moments, be more loving towards people I may not agree with, and be more helpful to the people around me. Focusing on being more lets us focus on what really matters in life and keeps us from being too caught up in the distractions of daily life.
I want to find joy in small moments not become caught up in the tangible things of daily life. I want to experience the joy that comes from God and the joy of simply being. or, as the name of this blog puts it, the simple joy of being. I encourage you all to join this journey with me and to live in the simple joy of being. ♥
