As I’ve said, I don’t believe on New Years resolutions I believe in New Years gifts. Gifts that we give ourselves.
Resolutions that I had made in the part were well-intentioned, but often I gave up or got distracted.
I believe in action. I don’t want to just plan to do things, I believe in doing. I’m ambitious and encouraged others to have ambition.
I am a notorious multi-tasker. As some women in my life have said, I can multitask as effectively as a woman. I’m certain that’s not true, but I am a notorious multi-tasker.

Fighting the Giant of Worry
If we’re gonna defeat the giant of worry we’ll need to focus our attention on the giant. You and I will need a system of priorities.
My first priority — well, at least I want to keep it in focus as my first priority — is my faith in God and my relationship with God.
Fight the giant of worry, hold onto God and God “will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.” 1

I’m Afraid Of A Relapse!
THE QUESTION: Last week, my daughter was released to go home from the psych ward. After she got depressed, she cut herself. I was afraid that she’d try to commit suicide. How do I know he/she won’t slide back into this again?
OUR REPLY: “Don’t focus on what might happen (but probably won’t); focus instead on things that affirm your future and guide your eyes toward hopefulness. You can both set and achieve short-term goals and remember to focus your attention on the positive things that you have in your lives.”
