2020 moves. Not resolutions.

The kids aren’t back to school for three days. We have slowly been getting back into routine. Yesterday called for lists of tasks to be handed out. Ian got his list done pretty quick and then he spent the rest of his day scootering around and building legos. 

Yesterday I heard a quote from Trent Shelton. It was, “Inconvenience exposes commitment.”  I loved it so much I wrote it on my mirror with red lipstick. This year is going to be another big power year.  I wrote down some of this years power moves and tacked them to the wall. I don’t like resolutions. I feel like they are hopes. I am more into moves. Moves are silent. They aren’t shared with others that are not pertaining. The resolutions of say working out and such are more habits that need to be done in order to accomplish the big moves. Resolutions are made to be broken. They set us up for failure and frustration. Moves are a big picture with steps to be satisfied that move us in a bigger direction. If I have a resolution to work out everyday and then life happens and I miss a day I am already feeling like I failed on myself. That is a hard place to be in. It doesn’t become a positive place for us and then we have to ask ourselves where are we going with the resolution?  What kind of a life is it working us towards?  That’s the move to be acknowledged. If the plan is to become healthier then that is our move. How we get there is by exercising and eating healthy. Podcasts. Time with God etc.  Just having the resolution to work out everyday is a spinning hamster wheel to what result?  Tiring and no end goal in sight.  Honestly I didn’t even do a workout on January 1 and I felt dang good about it. I started on the 2nd. Let my first day be one free of hustle and of jumping into the demands and expectations of the ball drop. Let it be organic, necessary and appreciated.
