New year, new direction

At the beginning of this year, I can't help but look back at my resolutions from last year. Some were so clever they're worth recycling; such as to see the world as Christ sees it, and to act accordingly. Some make me chuckle - to listen and follow God's plan even when it sounds stupid and crazy... yeah, we were there too many times to count during the last 12 months. While others hit a raw spot that makes me wince, like this one - to invest in people, not possessions. We got a little (ok a lot) of help with this one, as last year was sort of a brutal assault on our possessions.
This last year we've been pulled back to our knees more times than we can count so this year I'd like to take a different track. This year, I'm claiming Isaiah 40:31 as my personal verse -

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
This year I'm going to soar like an eagle, and run but not grow weary. Not exactly sure what that means on a practical day to day application, but I guess I can just wing it. (So punny, I know.) 
So who's up for a flying lesson... it's your turn to fly too.
