On December 31st, every year, there is talk about what the new year will bring, what we will do differently in our lives, and what positive changes we will make. Yes, like everyone else, I also made my resolutions. However, like most, many of those resolutions went by the wayside. That is why, on this Leap Day, I think that it is the PERFECT opportunity to “leap” into those resolutions and tweak them or make new ones.
What does it mean to “leap”?
As a verb, leap is defined as
-to spring through the air from one point or position to another; jump: to leap over a ditch.*
-to move or act quickly or suddenly: to leap aside; She leaped at the opportunity.*
As a noun, leap is defined as:
-a sudden or abrupt transition: a successful leap from piano class to concert hall.*
As a family, we will be making the leap to a better organized home (stay tuned for tips in that area).
As a mother, I will be making leaps to increase my patience level and finish reading that darn Chronicles of Narnia series out loud to the boys.
As a teacher, I will be making leaps to continue on my journey of teaching my boys to the best of my ability and taking the time to recognize when we need breaks from “normal” schoolwork and perhaps need to spend time with our many board (educational) games.
As a wife, I will be leaping at opportunities to continue being my husband’s cheerleader, teammate, sounding board, and partner in all aspects.
As a husband/wife team, we will take the leap of paying off both vehicles over the next 12 months…WOOHOO!!!
As myself, I will be leaping at all opportunities that land in my lap: being the newest member of the FitCity Moms
blogging team, creating and sustaining my health counseling/fitness training/menu-planning/etc. business (STAY TUNED FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS IN THAT AREA!), spending more time reading/studying about my faith, and taking more moments for myself and realizing that by doing so I am creating a better wife and mother for my family.
What areas will you take a leap in, or what will you be leaping to?
