Did you make it to midnight to ring in the new year? We had a campout in the den. I fell asleep, and as requested, the kids woke me before the ball dropped. Fifteen minutes later, I was back snoozing on my makeshift bed. ☺ Happy New Year!
So if you've been on Twitter the last few days, you've probably been seeing hashtags such as #OneWord, #oneword, #OneWord2012, #OneWord365. Curiosity got the better of me, and I tracked down the source. Here's what I found at the oneword365.com website...
One word can change everything.
Forget New Year’s Resolutions.
Scrap the long list of goals that you won’t remember three weeks from now anyway.
Choose just one word.
One word that sums up who you want to be
or how you want to live
or what you want to achieve by the end of 2012.
One word that you can focus on every day, all year long.
It will take hard work, and will require intentionality and commitment.
But if you let it, your word will shape you and your year.
It will guide your decisions and help you grow.
Discover the big impact one word can make.
A changed life.
I've thought it over, prayed about it, and am prepared to take the One Word challenge. What is my One Word?
That's right. I'm going to CELEBRATE this year. I know I can find at least one thing to CELEBRATE every single day. Far too often, I've let the days pass; living them quietly without giving a thought to how my perspective of the mundane events affect those around me. This life was made to CELEBRATE...even the smallest of moments.
We'll be CELEBRATING the monotonous as well as the typical fun events such as holidays and birthdays. It's going to be a blast! ☺
What's your ONE WORD for 2012?
