I just recently learned about choosing a word of the year. It is a concept that is new to me, but I tried it out this past year. It is pretty much like picking a theme or core value for your year. A word that embodies your goals and aspirations for the upcoming year.
Last year I chose the word SIMPLIFY. I wanted to simplify my schedule, my home, and my work. It was just what I needed. I quit a job I hated and found one that I love. It allowed me to have a much better work/life balance. I got better at saying no to things that cluttered up my schedule, which gave me more time for my family. I learned to let go of material things that cluttered up our home, which has brought a lot of stress relief to this mama. It has really been life changing.
For 2018, my word of the year is FOCUS. I really want to focus my attention to the things that matter. Focus on God and his will for my life. Focus on my family and how I can better serve them. Getting my priorities straight. I have a feeling that there will be some big changes this year, and I want to make sure my focus is in the right spot.
I would love to hear your word of the year. Leave me a comment with your word and why you chose it. If you have never chosen a word of the year, I definitely recommend it. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
