I missed mass today because I woke up late and I wasn't even able to go to adoration, I didn't like how the new year started at all. I do my hour in adoration tomorrow and boy have I missed sitting in front of the Blessed Sacrament. During my travels during these past weeks I have not had the chance to go in for adoration; either because the parish didn't have adoration or because I had no transportation to get to adoration.
I know the new year is all about making resolutions and I didn't think about making any. However, in the spirit of the new year I have been thinking about a few things that I would like to do.
- Sit in front of the Blessed Sacrament every day (even if it's for 20 mn)
- Get closer to the saints, especially St. Teresa of Avila and St. Simon (my patron for this year)
- Stop being so hard on myself, especially when it comes to my spiritual battles. I am finding that when I fail the Lord, I tend to get myself in a downward spiral that never ends.
- Focus on the graces the Lord has given me more so than my failures
- Gain ten pounds :)
You are all in my prayers as we enter this new year and I ask you to please keep me in yours.
