I’ve done this the past two years – chosen a word that would help guide my year. Two years ago it was “balance.” Last year it was “thrive.” Both of which were great and helpful. The word was in my planner where I could see it every day and remind me what I needed to strive for, work towards. I’ve been thinking about resolutions and goals the past several weeks and what my one little word would be this year. And I’ve chosen grace.
…I want to regain my health.
…Be a better wife.
…Work at being the best mom I can be.
…Be more patient.
With all of this, I need to give myself grace. Give others grace. I need to feel less guilt, especially when I say “no” to people. I need to be at peace with every decision I make.
I want to feel less guilt. I want to be more positive.
This past year was hard. So hard. I need to make my 2017 better. As I’ve been thinking of words to live by for this year, “grace” kept popping into my head. (It also helps that this is our daughter’s middle name. It’s a really good word.)
Do you have a word of the year?
