2012 was the first year that I picked One Little Word instead of setting resolutions. I chose “courageous” and I’m not sure I would call it a success, but it was by far better than breaking resolutions by the end of January.
For 12 months I kept the word “courageous” in the back of my mind. But the back of a mind does not equate to fully embracing – and unfortunately, I only acted on my word a couple of times.
By the end of the year, I really felt that there was more my word could offer. And after receiving some confirmation in the form of a key, I simply didn’t feel ready to give it up and choose a new word.
So I’m not. I’m keeping my word – well, a form of it, anyway. Instead of “courageous”, I’m going with “courage.”
And it will be awesome.
There are big things in store for 2013 – a trip to Ecuador, improvements on the blog, a few secrets, and a lot of fun.
In short, 2013 will take courage & 2013 will have courage.
Did you choose One Little Word for the new year?
Matthew 14: 27 “But Jesus spoke to them at once, ‘Don’t be afraid,’ he said. ‘Take courage, I am here!’”
