I don’t know if choosing a word for the new year is still something that people do or not, but I enjoy having one word to be my heart’s focus or goal. Perhaps that trend is past. I don’t know….I’m still doing it though.
But then again, I don’t always go with the flow.
Over the past few days, I’ve had one word that I’ve been mulling over in my mind. I really like it.
You want to know what it is?
The older I get, the more I am aware of how rapidly the years slip away. I will be 34 years old in a few months and that realization alone completely blows my mind. Aging hasn’t bothered me, not really. However, if the days are passing by in such a blur that I am unable to delight in or enjoy something in each and every one, well, then that would be a true loss.
For this new year, I want to sit back and purposefully savor the moments of my days. Baking with my girls, bathing my sweet little ones, receiving slobbery little boy smooches, continuing to honeymoon with my sweetheart, hearing Bible memory verses recited, seeing school programs and yes, even wading through hours of homework around our little kitchen table each week.
For 2015, I hope to…
- take more photos
- set aside my household duties more often (they’ll keep) and have fun with my family
- “unplug” more and participate in the memories that are happening around me
- try to enjoy the days in such a way that gets me moving more (read: more active…as in exercise)
As we are still beginning this new year, I am determined to enjoy every precious moment. I want to live life to its fullest. I want to face every day- no matter what it may hold -with great relish.
In other words, I want to delight in 2015.
And I can’t wait. Seriously.
How about you? Any thoughts, personal attitudes or goals for the new year? Set any resolutions? Share. I’d love to hear.
