What causes us to lose our determination?

It's a new year and the possibilities seem limitless.  On this day next year, what will I be thinking?  Will I have achieved the goals that feel so important today?  Will other things steal my time?  Will I let some things go out of necessity?  I find myself so determined today - to pray more, to be a better photographer, to re-organize what three weeks of kids and holidays have undone...Will I lose my determination to accomplish those things or will I run the race with endurance?

If dieting were high on the list of my goals for the year (it's not, thankfully), today would have caused me to lose that determination.  My Granny's house on New Year's Day is a definite determination killer!

What causes you to lose your determination?


  1. 1 day down, 364 to go :) I'm looking forward to following along this year! Mmm... looks like you enjoyed some great food today.

  2. Looks like quite the feast!
