1.1.11A new year.
A new decade.
A new beginning.
Ali Edwards chooses one word in January for the year ahead that gives her something to focus on and work toward.
I have been thinking of my 2010 year~ all the things that happened good and bad. Much more good than bad and thought of what I would like to work on in 2011...
Three words kept coming up in my mind~
And then I saw a word that made my heart leap~
What a beautiful word.
I began to think that is exactly what I will need to work on this year as I watch...
Savannah graduate college and get married,
Amelia graduate high school and move away to school,
Rosemary become the only big still at home,
Scott and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary,
EllaKate start to K (here at home),
and ShayleeJoy continue to bloom in her forever family.
I have to embrace these amazing changes instead of dreading them. Time passes and with it comes change. I have to take myself back to those times in my life and remember how happy and ready I was to embrace them. I have to let the girls live their lives just like I did and what a beautiful life it has become!
So my word for 2011 will be
and I am planning to use the other three words as goals for the year...
Jan-April: Embrace Health~
work on getting healthy for all the big events coming in May!
May-August: Embrace Focus~
Focus on the events at hand and make them the most special ever!
September-December: Embrace Simplicity~
Simply live life as it is day by day!
And in the end...
we will still be a family, a very happy and loving family, always looking forward to the times we are together and being only a call or text away when we're not.
Embracing our new life and all it encompasses.
AND... I think I will start one of these...
AND... I am starting EK and Jing's Lifebooks using this fabulous website!!!
So what will your word be?
Let's share and encourage each other to have the best 2011 we possibly can!!!
Embrace me by leaving a comment!!!
You crown the year with Your good blessings, and You leave abundance in Your wake.
