Do you make New Years resolutions? Not me. I always have good intentions to get in shape. Then, by February I am sitting on the couch eating guacamole and chips, watching The Biggest Loser.
Instead of a resolution I choose One Word. One word helps keep me focused for 365 days.
There is only one rule for my word: My word must mean something deeply to me, or I will just forget about it, and end up doing nothing at all…or eat a huge heaping bowl of guacamole and chips.
Every year I wait.
I wait for my One Word to speak to me. Some years it’s been a load roar, and other years it’s been a soft whisper.
Some of my One Words that I have chosen in the past:
2009: Be, as in “just be in the moment.”
2016 (first half): Gratitude; (second half) Prayer
2018: Let Go
