My One Word for 2016, “Commit,” did not exactly turn out the way I had hoped. I had big plans for committing to making different things happen in my life and they just didn’t happen. When the year began I realized that my neck surgery was top priority and I had no idea how difficult of a journey it would actually be, as I am still recovering. Not all was lost in 2016 because one of the best things that could have happened to me, did. I lost my job of over 13 years. The loss was painful, but it has pushed me to reexamine things in my life and I am definitely ready to 2017.
My word for the new year is “change.” The obvious would be change in my employment. But also change in my health so that I can be here long enough to hold my grandchildren Change in my perspective so that I may see other opportunities I may have not seen before. Change in my prayer life so that I can spend more time in devotion to the One who holds me close.
There are so many ways we can change to allow ourselves to be the best people we can be for our families and ourselves. I am “turning north” this year! It’s going to be fantastic 🙂
Happy New Year!
