Maybe goals for 2012 should have been titled “goals to be completed by the end of 2012.” So far, I haven’t managed to keep most of the goals this week. I did however, talk to God each morning, take risks with people, reply to emails within two days, and now, I’m writing a blog post. Already, things are looking up! Plus, Shelby, Kristin and I went out and took some photos today. It was good to practice taking photos of people. I just need to practice a lot more, and eventually I’ll start taking ones that I like more frequently.
This first week back of the dts has been harder than I expected it to be. The week has been fairly laid back and easy in terms of what we’re doing, but I’m finding that my attitude needs a bit of adjusting. I just don’t want to do anything, and it’s a struggle to stay motivated about the day to day things. It’s annoying not to look forward to the things we do in the same way that I did before break. Hopefully that will change soon.
There are a couple things that I am looking forward to, however. The first is spring. Now that Christmas is over, it just doesn’t seem like there’s any point to having winter any more, does it? Unless it snows here. That’d be nice. I’m also looking forward to the outreach I’ll be leading this summer. We’re going to be going to Prague from the 23rd to the 30th of April and to Moldova from the 1st of May to the 29th of June. No idea what we’ll be doing yet, but it’s going to be good!
