Part 3 is about looking forward. Here are some hopes for 2012:
1. A New Degree – Optimistically, in the next few months I’ll finish my thesis, create a portfolio, take the last of my classes, and graduate with a masters of education. There’s a lot of work involved, but think of the reward! Everyone will call me Master and I’ll have all the power & riches. (muah haha!!) Okay…none of those things will happen.
2. A Deeper Faith – God’s been working on me for a while. He’s clearing out room in my life and has made it obviously that he intends for me to fill it up with Him. If I had to pick a word for the year it would be DISCIPLINE. I would be the first to admit that I’m really good at procrastinating. Why do now what you can put off till later?? Ironically (or not), discipline was my word for last year too. I’m definitely feeling the nudge to get some of my priorities in order. And that involves some uncomfortable soul-searching and a commitment to more time with God.
3. The Unknown – As I mentioned before, there’s a lot of “openness” in my life right now. I’m not sure what’s in store for me, but I’m earnestly praying for some good friends. Actually, I have lots of great friends, but I’m looking for some LOCAL girlfriends. If nothing else, I’m looking forward to 12/12/12. Besides being a cool number, my friend Tamara is fairly confident that’s going to be an important day for me. ;)
