Another year had come on gone and now is the time people stop to think about what they’d like to change in the coming year aka new year resolutions. And there is lot of ideas for things to change, some photographers will take this time to commit to a 365 day (photo a day) challenge or 52 week (photo a week) challenge while others have decided to have a resolution a week (an idea I’m thinking of adopting).
To aid those of you thinking about new years resolutions I want to share two blog posts which I found particularly useful. Firstly is a article by the gospel coalition on how to make your resolutions stick. I think it is particularly helpful pointing out that we should be looking to the reasons behind our resolutions and making them the motivation for going on. Also making yourself accountable to other with you resolutions was another idea that I appreciated.
The second link is for those whom have the resolution of reading through their bible in a year. Last year I finished reading though mine chronologically and it was hand down the best thing I did all year. There are various reading plans that you can get to aid you in this but I thought I’d share the one I’m going to use. It’s called the Bible Eater and is put out be the gospel coalition again.
Here’s how the Bible Eater works:
- Old Testament: Read 2 to 3 chapters per day and take 4 days off per month. Read 1 to 3 designated one-sitting Old Testament books each quarter.
- New Testament: Read 1 chapter per day and take 4 days off per month. One gospel is assigned to each quarter and Romans and Hebrews are assigned twice across the year.
If you plan on doing this I hope the format works well for you and wish you all the best.
As far as blogging goes, I’m still working on a few projects (albeit waiting for parts to arrive) and look forward to blogging for another year.
Happy New Year,
