This year instead of having specific goals (although I have those too) I have chosen to pick a WORD to guide me. I shared this with friends and family and the discussions, laughter, and joking "Oh yes, that is you!" made it even more fun. Two weeks of deliberating, thinking about it, trying it on, and then deciding was difficult itself, but finally landing on the word for the year - it felt right.
My husband and daughter also came up with their word and we have a family word. We painted signs, put them up, remind each other, and celebrate when it made a difference.
So if you are having a hard time holding on to goals, try a WORD for the year and look at how it can guide you in so many ways.
Drum roll please.... here is my word and all its applications!
