Have you chosen one little word for 2014 to focus on, friends? Typically every new year, I review my 10 or so goals from the previous year, decide how well I did, and then create 10 new goals for the year. I will continue with this tradition, as I love goal setting, but I’ve also decided to jump on the One Little Word bandwagon this year. After MUCH contemplation about which word would be best for me for this year, I finally made my choice…
Shine. It’s simple, yet profound at the same time. This year, I choose to SHINE.
I will focus on making my thoughts more positive rather than negative. I will choose my words wisely when I speak to others, so that they may “shine out of [my] face like sunbeams…”
This year I choose to find lots of reasons to smile. I will smile for the small things like beautiful weather or the way my daughter giggles at her daddy. And I will smile for the big things like accomplishing big goals and conquering fears.
This year I choose to come closer to my Heavenly Father. I choose to study my scriptures on a regular basis and pray even more often than I already do. This year I choose to make my father in heaven proud of who I am, and I will shine.
This year I will do things that make my soul shine! I will spend lots of time with my family and friends. I will spend lots of time outside in beautiful weather. I will spend lots of time creating, reading, listening to music, exploring, learning, and trying new things. All of which make my soul shine bright.
As I am getting closer and closer to my 30th birthday, I find myself really becoming who I was meant to be. I know who I am and I am really beginning to LOVE being in my own skin. This year I will continue to learn more about myself and as I become who I am meant to be, I will shine brighter.
I am so confident that 2014 is going to be an amazing year, full of memories to be made, goals to accomplish, adventures to be had, dreams to fulfill, fears to conquer, and all kinds of ways to SHINE bright.
So now that you know my one little word for 2014, what’s yours?
