I first read about choosing one word to focus on each year in 2011 on Lindsey Nobles’ blog. I wondered, If I could focus on just one word to describe my resolution for this New Year, what would it be?
BLESSED? This word has been on my mind for sometime now. It keeps coming back to me every time I write a blog post, since that one word represents the theme of my blog, BLESSED: BLESSED: Building Legacies. Encouraging Spiritual Stories. Equipping Disciples.
This one word helps me think about my blessings when negative thoughts attack my mind. But another word also came to mind.
REST? I can’t seem to get away from this one word either. I have to admit, I’ve been quite “rest-less” the past few years. I’ve been on my own “wilderness journey,” seeking that “promised land of rest.” I’ve learned a lot, but I’m still seeking to know more and experience true ”rest.” And since I’m also trying to write more on “rest,” I do need to focus on that word, too!
FOCUS! I think of this word all the time! I tend to be distracted a lot. Since I work from home as a freelance writer, my mind always strays outside of my office door to the dirty laundry or messy kitchen. At times, I even find myself cleaning the bathroom instead of working on my writing projects. Or the phone rings. Or an e-mail alert diverts my attention. Or I glance over to Facebook, Twitter, or my Google Reader. Or I get lost in my thoughts as gaze out my office window. So, I chose “FOCUS” as my first One Word in 2011!
Future. I hope you will also stop again soon, I plan share my One Word for 2012 and for the New Year 2013.
