2017 Jan Almost Done

One week left in Jan….already.  Every year is the same.  The holidays come and go and we all experience the same thing.  We set New Years resoutions, goals, what have you and then we get to the 3rd or 4th week of the year and….we fall back into the same routine.  Or do we?  It’s not easy especially when you set some really lofty goals.  I say it’s okay to slip but just keep on track as best you can.  Whether that be an accountability partner to slap you in the face when you get off track or simply keeping a diary.  I keep several diaries which is a really bad habit as I lose track of where I write what.  But at least I am documenting it somewhere.  It’s just a matter of organising it and reflecting back periodically.

Therefore I like this blog format cause it’s easy (I do it from my phone) and I can post pics and it auto corrects.

So today I’d like to post my lunch for the past few weeks.  It’s brilliant (well to me at least).  Simple, quick and most of all affordable and super healthy!

Verse of the day

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13

This was a verse that I memorised awhile back when I was in London all by myself.  It’s been awhile since I’ve reflected on these words but it’s definitely something to live by.

Whether you are Christian or not, what you can take away from this is that you will encounter many tempataions in life and it’s your faith in yourself that will provide you a way to avoid these.  You are fully accountable for your actions and will have to live with the outcome of those.

Project A

A project I’ve always had in mind to complete is to create a comparison matrix of virtues and values that are common across different philosophies and religions.  I come across these often and have been taking note of ones that I think I can benefit from.
Today I came across this one in an email I get.  It’s from the Bible.

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.

Philippians 2:14-16
