So happy to have this new year here! This past year had a lot of bumps in the road for our family. There is just something about having January come around. The feeling of a fresh start and recommitting or committing to goals and new changes.
The past several years I have picked a word to focus on for the year. You can read more about it here. Ali Edwards does such a great job with this. If you look here she has a list of tons of words you can choose from if you are having a hard time coming up with your own.
I usually start thinking ahead of time about my new word, but this year I completely forgot about it until I saw new words popping up everywhere. The past few years my choice has been very easy. This year I struggled with it and the ones I had been thinking just didn't seem to fit. Then it finally hit.
My word for 2011 is STRENGTH. At first I just shrugged it off and tried to think of a new one, but I found it coming back over and over through out the past few days. So I finally decided to just go with it! Tonight I took sometime to play around with some photos and the word a bit. It was nice to take some time for just me! Something I need to work on more this year!
So have you thought of one little word that will help you to push yourself into a new direction and hopefully better your life? I may need to have this photo printed up and hang it as a daily reminder!
"Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing"
