Happy New Year, friends!
I truly hope that 2014 was a blessed year for you. But if you faced your share of hardships and heartbreak, you can be thankful for this new year and a fresh start. Our God is a God of new beginnings and I am so thankful for that every year. Even if you had a wonderful year, a fresh start and a fresh perspective can make the following one even more amazing!
I know tradition calls for sharing your New Year’s Resolutions. But honestly, I threw those out the window when, year after year, I epicly failed and disappointed myself. A few years ago, a fellow blogger shared about her new tradition…One Little Word. You choose ONE word to theme your year after and make that your resolution. It helps me to keep my focus, inspiration, and sanity.
Back in 2013 when I started this new tradition for myself, I chose “Create“. I spent the year looking for ways to let my creativity speak, both to me and those around me. In 2014, I failed to share my one word, but I journaled it. I chose the word “Devote”, and focused on devoting myself to the things in life that really mattered. Being in the moment with my family, one-on-one interactions, making relationships a priority, and of course, my relationship with God.
I have spent a lot of time contemplating and praying (both with my husband and on my own) about 2015 and what I want to focus on this year. It took me a long time to fit it into One Little Word, but I did it. It is decided. My One Little Word for 2015 is:
I’ll share more about what this word means for me and my family in 2015, but for now, I wanna know…
What is YOUR New Year Resolution?
