In the past I have picked out a word for the year, I really had no intention to this year. A couple of years ago my word was present- that seemed perfect and like something that I still need to work on today.
Sunday night, as we were sitting around eating our ice-cream after our family night, there was just this moment of contentment and happiness and it hit me that I need to BE.
To BE more present
To BE real in life with who I am and who I show myself to be
To BE there-- really there, in those little moments with my kids
To BE actively engaged in doing good, doing more
To BE more physically active, getting back to working out and eating right
To BE who God wants me to BE.
I just need to BE.
The best part, I don't have to do it all at once. The New Year isn't the only time I can set goals and try again; but every week.... every week when I partake of the Sacrament at church, it is like starting fresh again. Being washed clean again and trying again.. and again and again, as I am so far from who I can be.
So this year-- I am going to BE.
Do you have a word for this year?
