What? You mean everyone doesn't make resolutions that way?
Anyway, the only NYR I ever actually kept, was the year I vowed not to make resolutions anymore. Except that yesterday I read this fascinating idea over at Crazyland (who got it from someone else, and oh how I love her for giving proper credit, srsly.), and it's still swirling around in my head as epiphanies sometimes do.
Just choose a word, and for the next 365 days, try to live it a little bit better.
So today I've been pondering words, looking for word that means something to me. A word I can really open up to, and live by, and BE. I think that if there's one word I really want to live this year, it's this:
I want to not just hear - but really listen to what my children are saying. I want to listen to my husband's counsel. I want to listen for the whisperings of the Holy Ghost in my life on a continuing basis, rather than just during a prescribed 15 minute period every morning.
Hey, maybe if I'm really listening, I can even overcome my annoying habit of talking over the top of other people. I'm telling you, the possibilities are endless.
I would LOVE for you to join me.
What's your word?
