What was your word of the year?

February 2, 2010 Uncategorized 10

If you remember my friend Janel gave me the idea of having a word of the year……..a word that I could strive for, a word that could define my goals for this year.
My word was REVISE, and I’m still a work in progress but January has gone very well.  I’m beginning to feel better, less heavy in my soul.  I’m trying to make each day a bit happier, positive.  We are one month into 2010, and I am trying to put my word into actions where I can. 

I promised to share some of my friends words………….so here they are, and you can visit them and learn more about my bloggy friends if you wish.

Beth’s word is Listen………I love this one.

Susan‘s word is Fifteen………you have to go to her blog and learn more about this one.  It makes so much sense, to anyone who is looking for a way to organize

Janel‘s word is Surrender……….what a powerful word, and so difficult to do.

I have other friends that told me what their word was going to be……..and now I’ve forgotten some…….Let me assure you I could have chosen write it down as a theme for the year….lol.  My memory is totally shot!
I hope you will comment and let me know what your word is, or might be.

    I didn’t pick a word of the year, but I think I should have. Is it too late? I love Listen and Surrender. Those would be good choices for me. But I think I would choose Calm. I need to calm down my personality. I’m going to spend today thinking on this. Thanks for the nudge Anita.

    Also, I noticed you’ve added a blog author to A Wife, a Woman, a Mom – Elizabeth. Is this something new? Looking forward to hearing more about this development and meeting Elizabeth.

    My word for last year would be “do-over.” That’s one word right? Sure it is.

    However, my word for this year is “proactive” because I am determined to make this a good year despite all the other crap going on.

    I remember your post about this. I thought about it for quite a while and could not come up with a word that would stick. I’m thinking what it really needs to be is COOK.

    I need to check out the blogs you linked. 🙂

    Surrender has been going pretty good for me. I had to start when I found out I was pregnant and it was unplanned. I was not a happy camper at first but then had to realize that God just has a plan for me and I have to give up on trying to be so in control of it all.
    I recently had another issue at church that I had to surrender to. I wanted to stomp and scream but in the end it was good I let it go.
    It’s hard hard hard. But in the end, it feels good.

    Based on my new year’s resolution I would say the word is PRAY. I just felt if I let God in and put him in charge then the rest of my life would fall into place rather than trying to control everything. So, I am praying more about me, our family, others, etc. So far so good! I like the one word idea! 🙂
