Happy New Year, 2018!
I’m not really one for New Year’s Resolutions, what about you?
I am more of a resolve to make a change when it is needed whether it is January 1st, April 18th, or November 24th. That being said, this year I am going to try something a little different. This is something that has been on my mind for a few weeks now…
I have been thinking about claiming a word for the year.
I feel as if claiming a word has a much more positive spin to it than a new years resolution. Most New Year’s Resolutions are tossed aside or forgotten by the end of February… Whereas, a word of the year is something that can be focused on, and meditated on, in little spurts rather than an everyday task or one big thing.
Here are a few of my potential words:
- Joy: something exceptionally
- Kindness: a willingness
- Organization: coordinated parts
One of the words in the top running for this year is actually something that I have already been trying to focus on: Gratitude!
During the month of November, I blogged daily about what I am thankful for. I really enjoyed intentionally focusing on being grateful. After taking the time every day to list out all the things I have to be thankful for I realized just how true it is that gratitude turns what we have into enough!
What about you? Do you make resolutions or do you claim a word to focus on for the year? I’d love to hear what you are looking forward to in 2018!
