This picture is of Chloe and Sissy our cat. Sissy was laying in Chloe's bed and Chloe laid just on the edge so as not to scare Sissy away. It was a rare occurrence that the two of them were so close. Chloe usually likes to chase Sissy for fun, and Sissy is so skittish I was surprised to find them together long enough for me to run and get the camera.
Well, today I am thinking about resolutions. For the first time in a lot of years I am not putting weight loss in the number one slot of my resolutions. I instead am going to put "going the extra mile". I mean that in more than one way. When I am exercising, I need to push myself just a little harder. When I think I can't do more, make myself do just a little bit more.
And this can carry over into my every day life. I can "go the extra mile" in everything I do from organizing a closet in my house to helping on a task at my church or working with a friend on a project of any other kind. Putting in a bit more effort will make a huge difference in my performance and results. Rather than make a list of things I resolve to do, this year I will focus on that one task. It can be a huge step in changing how I relate to others and reach other goals in my life.
The wind has been blowing hard here, something that rarely happens. I was awakened by it and now it's almost 3:30. I am getting sleepy again so I think I will head back to bed. Hopefully there won't be too much debris in the driveway from the oak tree out front.
