Have you heard of the One Word resolution? Actually, it is called #OneWord365. I read about it on a Facebook post.
Basically, the idea is to forget about new year's resolutions. How many of us remember them after a few weeks anyway? I know I don't and so don't usually make any. However, this year I am excited about the idea to Choose just one word! That's it.
You focus on one word, every day, all year long. In essence, the word should sum up who you want to be or how you want to live. On the website, it suggests that it will not be easy; you will need to be committed. But if you let it, it will shape you, as it wil help to direct your decisions and guide your steps.
I have thought long and hard about what word I would choose. Surprisingly, I chose "Die". What on earth do I mean?
Die to preconceived ideas that don't match up with who I was designed to be and therefore discover who I really am. Die to selfishness in all areas of my life. Die to perfectionism in my health, in my writing, in my relationships. Die to procrastination, etc. You get the idea.
How about you? What word would you choose?
