"For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again." [Proverbs 24:16] Bible
I have chosen a Word of the Year for over ten years now. The inspiration came from one of my favorite scrapbookers...Ali Edwards. I have always been in awe of how GOOD she is at documenting her life. So when she encouraged her readers to pick a Word and build on it all year long....I couldn't resist.
Some of my Words through the years have been...
Sometimes I just KNOW what my Word will be and I thought that was going to be the case for 2017.
LOVE was my first pick for MONTHS. I even had a cuff made in the fall thinking that would be it.
when I REALLY got to thinking about it...it changed.
And as usual instead of me choosing my Word...
my Word chose me.
I honestly can't remember when I've been so excited about a New Year, A New Word and New Goals.
2016 was a quiet, self-reflecting year for me.
I spent a lot of time in my own little cocoon...reading, dreaming and being way too hard on myself.
2017 is my Coming Out Party!!
I am breaking out of my shell...
Ready to take on the World!
My Word for 2017 is
I have made some pretty sizable goals for myself in 2017.
The one I am most excited about...
the one I know will change my perspective in life...
the one that will allow me to reach ALL my other goals...
In my 30's I began running and LOVED it.
It changed me.
I felt more confident...
more determined to reach my goals.
I wasn't afraid
and I ALWAYS did my best.
Not gonna lie...
I am in terrible shape.
I have 35 pounds heavier...
I am out of breath quickly...
and I am 50 years old.
But you know what??
NONE of those things is going to STOP ME!!
I would LOVE to know what YOUR Word for 2017 is.
Please share with me in the comments here or in my FB group!!
Let's make 2017 our BEST year EVER!!!!!
