Right before the new year, participants in an online group that I’m in, challenged themselves to find a word or phrase that would shape or guide their 2016. It took me a few days to find the “perfect” word.
So, with that in mind…
That’s right. DO. An active kind of word. A right now kind of word.
This is what I wrote on the forum:
Accomplishing what I want to do with love, joy, and excellence! Including goals I set for myself and making sure the friendships and connections I have are successful. Just getting stuff done.
A Bible Scripture that motivates me is from Habukkuk 2:2 – “Write the vision, make it plain!”
This is how I can start – writing thoughts down, making reasonable to-do lists, willing myself to make it happen. It helps to see visuals to push me along on my journey. Like right here; this post is a reminder that I can do what I want to do.
- I’m drinking more water. I bought a big, blue container from Five Below and I fill it up!
- Speaking up and voicing my opinions, whether or not they are popular.
- Trying new things – makeup, travel routes, food, exercises, etc.
- Also, here is a big deal – I’m getting my knee checked out again (very old dance injury) and finding out what I can do to make it better. If that means surgery, okay, but hopefully not!
So that’s my “word” for 2016. Not just thinking and wishing things would change. But just going for it. Taking small steps, that elevate to huge leaps.
