Being that I am not a "New Years Resolutions" kind of girl, I have waited to type this post. I have given the year enough time to get going that it wont be misconstrued as a "resolution" without waiting so long as to not set the tone for the months ahead. I like having a focus word for the year. It provides a little clarity in an otherwise hectic and convoluted life. Last year my word was "Grace". And while I don't think I mastered it, I do believe I remembered to extend it more, to try to emulate it more, and to recognize it happening in my life whenever possible.
So this year I am focusing on humility...having a modest opinion of one's own importance or rank. I think if I can get this right a whole lot of other things will fall into their proper place and perspective. I think this humility thing is a stress reliever, a priority maker, and all around good for the soul. So that's my word...humility. And I find it just a little bit ironic that I am blogging about it (as if my word for the year has some sort of importance...). Humility is a funny animal...the moment you think you have attained it, it is lost. So here goes, a year of humility. And hopefully last year's grace will spill over too.
words that carry meaning
Until Next Time,
