Anyway, New Years Resolutions.
I know, I know, I'm over due....too bad :)
I've never really been one to make new years resolutions (here and here are some of my resolutions ~ sort of ). But I do like to have goals and I always want to strive for something. The last few years I've noticed the "word of the year" trend amongst many. I like the idea of it. Check these blogs out and read about the words they chose for this year:
Oh my Handmade Goodness (Organize)
Holy Craft (Intent)
Kimbo from a Girl and a Glue Gun (Balance)
Organize, intent, balance or how about simplify, breathe, joyful, loving, whole, and vibrant, etc.
Those are all good ones, but I was wanting more. And I decided MORE was going to be my word of the year. I mean, I want more patience, more energy, more focus, more understanding, more love, etc.
But, I don't want or need more stuff. I don't want more physical items in my life. However, I do want more of the things that are intangible. More of myself ~ everyday. So I kept thinking, MORE just didn't feel right.
And then it hit me.
I want to BE more loving
I want to BE more patient
I want to BE more optimistic
I want to BE more forgiving
I want to BE more considerate
I want to BE a better wife
I want to BE a better mom
I want to BE a better friend
I want to BE more determined
I want to BE more prayerful
And the list can go on and on and on. So you see, I don't want to change myself, I just want to BE more of who I already am.
So my word of the year:
Do you make resolutions or have a word of the year? What are they?
