My 2023 word of the year is here! I love doing this rather than SMART goals because it encourages me to lose control of ME doing the change and lets God speak to me as I look and listen and BE STILL.
My words that grew me the most were grace (that year my marriage imploded), vulnerable (the year the pandemic hit) and last year was Joy (my first year to ever really dive into therapy and learn circumstances have nothing to do with what has my focus and heart).
I know this word will push me, drive me and teach me and I am ready. Stepping out of my comfort, being okay to do it afraid, focusing on what other people may need from me rather than what I want to give, doing what should be done even if it is hard or takes lots of my time and energy, having the hard conversation even if it makes me cringe and being willing to walk away and accept change if God creates a door.
Honestly, maybe it is as simple as make the changes for my health even if it is more exercise and saying no to delicious foods or drinks that wreck my body.
Who knows…but I am ready for the next 365. Time to get uncomfortable.
