|My One Little Word from the last three years|
My word last year was JOURNEY. I wanted to be more aware of this journey - my life. I needed to be more aware of what was going on during the journey not just working my way to the finish line as fast and as best as I could. I didn't want my life to be about performance or expectations. Well, 2011 certainly was quite the journey. There were plenty of ups and downs along with many learning opportunities. There was heartache as well as joy and happiness. Overall, I can say that God continued to bless and I ended the year better than I started it.
This year my chosen word is indeed a little word. Just two letters. DO. That is my word. As I looked back on my words from past years, it seemed like DO was naturally the next thing to choose. I needed to FOCUS on the things that were most important, I needed to be TRUE, authentic, and to surround myself with authenticity, I needed to be present on the JOURNEY, to experience, learn from, enjoy and appreciate all I encountered. Now, it's time to DO. Time to get down to business. There are many areas in which I need to DO. Here are some that come to mind:
ResponsiblyThose may not make sense to you right now, but in the next few days I will lay out my plan. For now, I just know that I have plenty I want to DO - However, this is nothing new. I am very active, always busy, always doing...but in the DOing, this year I want to get many things DOne. This is where 2012 is going to be different than all other years past.
