This will be my fourth One Little Word. FOCUS from 2009, GRATITUDE in 2014, STRONG from 2015 all still speak to me in one way or another. I love how these words carry through from one year to the next.
During December, I have been thinking about what word is speaking to me right now. What word will help me focus in on what I need in 2016? Where do I need something?
The word that kept popping up in my mind was CHOOSE. Right now, and this could change, it means that I need to stop and make good choices.
There are too many days when I sit down during naptime and end up wasting the entire time doing stupid things like watching stupid shows. I need to make different choices that will positively impact myself and my family. Like clean the kitchen. Or create something. Or write for a while. Or do laundry. Or work on my license classes. Or exercise. There are always better options.
But, sometimes the best option is to sit down and waste time. Sometimes that’s the choice that should be made. But, I want to be more aware of those choices and aware of why I’m doing the things I do.
Those are the little choices, the daily choices that can change how I spend a day. But, I know that these Little Words seep into more than just the days. They don’t seem to be making a difference, then, poof I realize the huge impact they have made. These little days, these little choices all add up to something much more important.
So, I choose CHOOSE as my word for 2016. Here we go!
