Ready. Set. Let Go!

Resolution or no, a new year is upon us. Here are a few ideas to help make your forthcoming year an intentional one:

Start a blog.
Get out of debt.
Simplify your diet.
Plan for retirement.
Take a writing class.
Read one book per month.
Say goodbye to fake friends.
Join a free local meetup group.
Exercise eighteen minutes every day.
Play the 30-Day Minimalism Game.

Happy New Year, y’all. Thank you for allowing us to contribute to your lives these past five years, and for helping us contribute to the world around us: last year, with your help, we built an elementary school in Laos, funded a high school in Uganda for a year, installed clean-water wells in a Malawi village, and constructed a family-style orphanage in Honduras.

This year, it’s time to jettison the trinkets of the past and replace them with something meaningful. Pick one or two items from the list above, and make them a priority. Ready? Set. Let go!
