Have you heard about One Little Word?
Basically you chose a word to define you or your life for a year. Weird, huh? I thought so. Who wants to think of something to define them for 365 days? On the other hand, it's kind of like resolutions without big long wordy sentences or plans.
I decided that I needed to make 2012 a year of CHOICES. Interestingly I found a bracelet that says "Dreams become reality one choice at a time." It was like it was meant to be! I put that bracelet on sometime in February and haven't taken it off.
My year of choices taught me a lot. I have many small choices that add up to big things that are hard to see. If I make a bad choice, there is no need to beat myself up, just make the better choice next time. I do have may choices even when I think I have none. I can only make MY choices, not someone else's choice.
Powerful stuff when I start looking back and reflecting. And I realize how far that one little word has gotten me in 2012.
So my word for 2013? GRACE.
I want to live gracefully. In beauty and kindness. With poise and centered in myself. I want to chose nice over mean. I want to give myself grace and forgiveness and be ok with who I am at any given moment. I want to be graceful in motion and thought.
What do you think?
