November Resolutions

My monthly resolutions for November:

Spiritual Resolution:  Focus on the Fruit of the Spirit Peace.

My verses for this month will be John 14:27 and Romans 12:18

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." - John 14:27

"If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men." - Romans 12:18

Mental Resolution:

Read more books.  The past two months have been focused on reading books pertaining to my career.  This month I would like to read for pleasure.  My friend recommended Graceling by Kristin Cashore.  Already the books remind me of The Hunger Games. The main character in Graceling is called Katsa and one of the main male characters is named Po.  There is a secret underground society.  The story line and plot are very different from Hunger Games though.  I would much rather have seen a movie adaptation of this series. There is a short video on Youtube, which I will link here.

Emotional Resolution:

This month, I would like to continue to write letters to friends.  Also, I would like to learn how to make bottle cap magnets and sell them on Etsy.  My Etsy shop is almost ready to be open, but I'm extremely nervous about selling my art.  I NEED to follow through on this resolution, because Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat.

Physical Resolution:


Yes, I need more movement in my life.  It has to be easy and fun.  Also, I would like to eat less carbs...and I'm considering strongly becoming gluten free.  The first thing is to find a food bank or pantry to donate all the extra pasta we have in our cupboard!  Since my voting place is a church, on Tuesday I will ask if they have somewhere to give food.

Extra Resolutions:

Take lots of photographs of Riley!

Conehead is not amused.

Thank you to Kelli from She Learns As She Goes for inspiring us with the idea of monthly resolutions.  A bunch of us link up through her blog each month.  Check out her blog, she is one talented lady.
