On New Year’s Day as I was taking down my Christmas tree that was losing needles faster than the clock was ticking, I heard someone talking about picking a word to focus on for the New Year rather than a resolution or two.
I thought it sounded like a great idea and all day long I started thinking about what my word would be. I also decided that this idea might be good for my children, who are in high school (and sometimes don’t buy into my crazy ideas as easy as they did when they were 5). They accepted my challenge and chose a word. I told them I’d ask no questions about why they picked their word nor would I pass any judgment.
Once we chose our words we then painted them on rocks. We will keep these painted rocks on a windowsill in my dining room. Hopefully throughout the year, we will be reminded of our words and reminded of what we’d like to focus on for 2014. Our words are “Believe, Grow, and Adventure.”
If you were going to pick one word what would it be? Or did you go the route of a resolution? Whatever you did or didn’t do, I hope that this New Year so far is turning out to be a good one for you.
