New Years resolutions make me itch. I feel like I’m setting myself up for failure, joining the ranks in the gym who will only last a few months before reality sets in. Or I’ll try to resolve to write more, to push myself to do something the “big” bloggers are doing (a new blog platform, write an eBook, etc.) and I’ll soon realize that .. um.. I’m not them.
So when the lovely Miss Melanie at Only a Breath (y’all, she is as sweet as pie and I wish desperately we lived closer together because she just makes me smile) offered to create free One Word buttons for anyone who was interested, I was intrigued.
The concept is pretty easy actually. Instead of a resolution, you pray about what one word God would have you focus on in the coming year. Something that will be the driving force behind your goals, you family, your work, your dreams. One word that is yours – not a word from anyone else.
I thought about it for awhile. Prayed about it in the shower (true story). Bounced options around in my head until one just stuck.
One word that defines what I need to focus on to make my dreams for 2013 happen.
One word that defines what 2012 wasn’t.
One word that will remind me to keep pushing forward.
What is it?
