Have you heard of One Little Word?
You chose one word to represent goals and actions
to be taken in the upcoming year.
I am not big on making New Years Resolutions but
choosing a word- that seems simple enough.
That was until I tried to choose my word for 2015.
I'm about to get personal again...
2014 was not a wonderful year for me.
Nothing major happened, really.
Everyone in my family is in good health, we have a house and vehicles,
my kids are doing great in school, etc. I know I am a very blessed girl!
Even knowing all of that- I didn't have a great attitude, I felt sorry for myself,
small setbacks were consuming to me, etc.
I just didn't thrive in 2014.
So that is the word I chose for this year...
This year is my year to THRIVE!
By thrive I mean be happy no matter what.
We all have trials every single day.
What sets a happy person apart from an unhappy person is how they deal with those trials.
I am going to look for the positive in myself, the people around me and in our situations.
I am going to figure out how to be happy and spread joy whatever comes my way!
Not only did I decide to do the One Little Word, I talked my family into it as well!
We all thought about it and chose words to represent what we want to do in the upcoming year.
We posted them on a magnet board in our dining room to remind us every day!
Did you choose One Little Word for this year?
