Hi Everyone! The year has flown and crept by all at the same time.
For the past few years two friends and I have picked our one word for the year rather than doing a new years resolution. The thing about life and bringing in changes to it means its gonna get messy. Life is messy we have ups and down and struggles in and around us.
I have talked a lot about gratitude and being thankful a lot because I think its necessary to have. I have had to come to realize you cannot even be thankful perfectly all the time.
I am going to be real candid and graphic, there’s a lot of crap in life to deal with and if, you can get through it and stop with the bs and stop co-signing others bs, we can get through the struggles so much quicker. I didn’t say it was gonna be easier, but its a lot smarter, to just deal with it head on and quit carrying it around like a shroud or gold medal. It stinks, its smelly, and gets old real quick!
I have to take responsibility for the one words, for my goals, for my failures, and my achievements.
Here’s my thing, I thought for sure I am the only one slacking living up to everything. I am finding out others are having just as hard of time but I’ve always considered their side easier. How can I do that? It’s easy I am not living their life! But I do have to take responsibility for my own life.
This year of 2017 my one word was healing . It encompassed so much from my mind and emotional well-being to my physical health. I can’t say it has been a failure but there sure have been a lot of disappointments in how I lived out. I learned from it all and that is knowledge and an education.
So here I am with this knowledge that I have a lot of anger and rage and its working against my healing. Its left over crap I have been carrying around. Here’s a nugget of truth that will go a long way. What we have as left over baggage will impede our progress to a better life.
I will say I am healing I am really doing well physically healing which was of real concern last year til about 6 months ago.
As we close 2017 and open the curtain on 2018 my new word is Enough.
I have enough healing within to start growing toward a better life. I have enough in me to treat others and myself better. I have enough in me to make it through and to do better.
Its Enough! God provides where we may lack so God is Enough!
Thanks for reading!
