Do you see yourself in these pursuits? At one time or another in my life I could have said every single one of them, (well, except the empty nest one, but I'm sure it's coming!) and I'm sure you could too. Aren't you glad we live this life together? Even as an introvert, I know that living this life alone would be sad and disheartening.
Imagine what 2014 will look like if we truly commit ourselves to the pursuits we declared? Let's encourage each other to move forward, to not look back and be discouraged, but "to follow close, to strive to gain, seek to attain, proceed with a method, continue in a course of action.." and be the person God created us to be.
