Good Morning……This is the first time in a long time that I have looked forward to the New Year. It is a new beginning in some many ways for me. The past year brought lots of lessons both personally and professionally. I have overcome hurdles to move forward in becoming the person that God wants me to be.
Finding my word for this year has been a journey. I sat quietly and wrote through the steps from yesterday’s post, then it happened. Thank you to the One Word Experiment for your guidance and God of directing me.
I believe that God has created me to be a person who gives of themselves so others will smile. I am the person who fights for the underdog. I am the person who believes that all people are good and kind deep down – yes, sometimes it is a little deeper than others. I am the person who wants to help everyone and never thinks of what the effects will be on me (or my family).
So what are the qualities that this kind of person? They are confident, caring, generous, passionate, loving, and creative. They have faith and courage. They are strong and powerful.
Some may be surprised at my word for those year and there are others who have been on a journey with me the past year who will totally get it. My 2016 word is CONFIDENCE
CONFIDENCE to believe when the way is rough. CONFIDENCE to hang on when the going is tough. CONFIDENCE will guide me when my business is slow. CONFIDENCE will guide me as I move forward with the Rays of Hope – Angel Connection. CONFIDENCE will guide me as I overcome doubt with my new contract working with a grassroots non-profit. CONFIDENCE will guide me as I learn to live with my recent diagnosis of MS. CONFIDENCE will guide me as I see and believe in the person that others see in me. CONFIDENCE will guide me as I squash the inner gremlins that have haunted me all of my life.
What is your word for 2016? Share it with us and let’s work together to make this year a success….
Wishing you and your family a safe, healthy and Happy New Year!
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
