I have read many blogs where people pick one word for the year instead of lots of little resolutions (that are usually the same as last year anyway!) I have been intrigued by this and decided to pick the word:
This word represents a lot to me. First off, I turn 30 this year (yes, write that down-March 20th!). As I enter this decade, I would like to think I have become a little bit wiser and know a little bit more about what's important. So, I would like to focus on figuring out more about the person I want to become. I don't want to use the word "become" because I believe "becoming" represents the process. I want to enjoy the process.
I want to remember that changes happen one step at a time and to be patient. I want to work on becoming a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and person. I will do this by making wise choices in how I spend my time. I will open my heart to others more and focus on "being" instead of "doing." I won't look at life as a checklist, but as a journey. I want to follow my father's example of kindness and love and pass that legacy on.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year! Come join me!
Does anyone have a word for the year?
But mostly good.
