Thoughts in D.C.

Recently, I was visiting Washington D.C. As I was walking down the streets, I watched the people that were walking past me. I saw a lot of cellphones, earbuds, chatter and just those walking. Most people won't make eye contact with you, but some do. A few smile, but not many. As I was paying close attention to people, I got to thinking... What kind of struggle is each person going through? Each person in this world is going through at least one struggle, whether it be the loss of a loved one or even just having a bad hair day. Every time I looked at a new person, I thought in my mind, what is this person facing?

I've been dwelling on this thought process since my trip to D.C. I suggest that you think about it too. The next time you're out in public, getting food, shopping or anything.... Just look at people and think about this topic. You'd be surprised how it might change your perspective.

A New Year, A New Resolution

Usually, I make New Year's resolutions, then never follow them. I make the usual ones, such as, I'm going to start running every day, or I'm going to eat a lot healthier. I never complete those. Haha. I don't think many people do. Sometimes, every once in a while, I'll make the resolution to read my Bible in a year... I usually fail that one too, which is sad. This year, I'm not going to make the ones that I always make. This year, I've only made one resolution.

To be more Christ-like. That's it.

That will probably be the hardest one to fulfill, but I think that I can do it.

Make an achievable resolution this year. And make sure it's God-centered.

God Bless,
Christian B.
