I finally feel I'm getting into the new year's routine after the whirlwind of the holidays. It takes me a while to just breathe, reset and move forward each January. Do you feel the same?
This year, for the first time, I decided to choose a word that will be my focus for the months ahead. I've never participated in One Little Word but I've always been drawn to the idea. I think that in the past I made it seem too hard...which word to choose, how would I know, would I be happy with just ONE word defining my year?
But I decided this was the year to join in. So many lovely ladies I admire are taking part, and I didn't want to be left behind!
The word that kept returning to my mind was "trust." I tend to be a worrier by nature--and the word trust seems to be one that might counter that tendency. I want to trust more that things will work for the best, that my God is bigger and bolder and more loving than I can imagine, and that whatever comes my way, I will be able to handle it. Sounds big and scary, doesn't it? But it's my hope that focusing on this word will at least begin to draw my mind in this direction.
If you're still pondering a word for the year, I urge you to jump on in! Let's take the leap together and see what happens.
P.S. Take a minute to check out this post and the awesome video by Chris Sneddon on today's Shutter Sisters site. It's so inspiring! And I'm so honored to have my photo be a part of it!
