Ok.. back to my rant… So this year I’ve been Inspired. I was sent an email from a reader sharing her New Years Tradition of focusing on a single word as her goal for the Year! A Beautiful tradition. She concentrated on “Simplify!” It meant wonderful things for so many aspects of her life! If she could just concentrate on the word “Simplify” it would change so much!
I loved this idea. I was taken by it simplicity and yet knew it had the potential to do so much. Immediately a word popped into my head and I knew it would be my focus for the year!
Selfishly I need to Serve others. It makes me feel good. It gives me something to do outside of my own personal responsibilities. I easily get lost in my own everyday hiccups I forget to look outside and see where I could better be utilized!
So I got so excited about the thought of focusing on a single word I had a hard time just picking one. Oops! Can you tell my other word is not going to be “Simplify!” I’m not there yet!
So this year I’d like to focus on three words or concepts if you will…
Following Through will be a good one for me! I have endless good intentions but following through on them is the hard part…like doing laundry! Yeah…that whole process from start to finish takes me like 5 days! From now on…”Follow Through” will haunt my subconscious! A single days task! Can you imagine!
Planing, projects, activities! So many things that clutter my mind and my space will finally get the attention they so deserve!
Home! I need to work harder to make my Home the warmest most welcoming refuge my family will ever know! I need to make more of an effort to focus on it’s purpose. To comfort those who dwell in it’s rooms and inspire love and safety! To me that means editing the STUFF that I once called necessities and filling it instead with loving reminders of the things that are really important. It also means focusing on meal time, traditions, order and family.
So there you have it! My “New Years Resolution!” This year I plan on devoting much of my energy on Serving others, Following through on the intentions I make and creating a Home that is a Haven!
If you were to pick one word for your New Years Focus what would it be?
