Happy New Year friends! I’m excited for all the possibilities that 2013 holds! I must admit that I’m happy to close the door on 2012, and move forward into 2013.
As I sat trying to think up goals for 2013 and a word to focus on, the word GRATEFUL kept coming to mind. I wanted to focus on being grateful and giving thanks in each and every situation of my life (good & bad). So last week I settled on the word grateful! Just when I thought I was all set the word LEARN kept popping up in my everyday life and in my mind constantly. Learn is such a powerful word! It truly encompasses everything I want to accomplish, not only in 2013, but for the rest of my life.
When I first thought about what I wanted to learn this year, many things jumped out at me. I do want to learn a lot of different skills and crafs, but I also want to learn things that can’t necessarily me measured, photographed, or physically touched.
So this year I want to LEARN:
-how to knit
-how to play the cello
-how to be more grateful for my everyday life
-how to give grace, even when I don’t want to give it
-more about my community
-how to be more patient with my girls
-how to find balance in my life
And most importantly….
-I want to learn how to fully trust God with EVERY aspect of my life! I want to learn to let go of my insecurities and doubts and trust that God is in control and remember that He has NEVER let me down!
Here is to a great year of LEARNING!!
Make it great!
