Choose YOUR New Year's Resolution or a word for the year!
by Katie Cullum
Happy New Year!
Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions? Or are you in the “been there, done that,
failed in 5 days” camp? Or maybe you’ve been successful with resolutions in the past?
I’ve seen other ways to celebrate the new year – with a word. One word for the year.
I heard Jon Gordon speak at a conference several years ago, and I follow him on Twitter.
He mentioned that he’s had One Word each year for several years and how there’s even
a #onewordchallenge. Do you have One Word?
I choose to do One Word instead of resolutions this year. My word is CHOOSE. But
I can add more to it to challenge myself.
Choose….healthy foods most of the time.
Choose….how I react to people (be positive, don’t let negativity get me down, etc.).
Choose….regular physical activity.
Choose….kindness. To everyone. Even when I’m frustrated that the Christmas gift I
ordered before Christmas is STILL not here.
Choose….patience, especially with those closest to me.
Choose….simplicity. Maybe a capsule wardrobe – I have a “work” wardrobe of mostly
black pants, logo shirt, and sweater/vest. I could do with just less stuff.
Choose….gratitude. I can be thankful for heat, warm clothes, running water, enough
food, a job, and so many other things. Why should I stress about how many “likes”
Choose….to clean & declutter regularly. This goes along with simplicity! A house
that is clean & tidy makes me feel more relaxed, more able to get things done. But
if I let it slide into cluttered with dirty dishes and toilets, then I get frustrated
and don’t want to do anything. It’s depressing!
Choose….to make good financial decisions. Think ahead. Plan ahead.
I had planned for an afternoon coffee at a coffee place last week. It was my treat
for the week! But then, I saw the drive-through line….and didn’t stop. I saved a
little money and made hot tea at home instead. It was simpler, cheaper, and took
less time. But I had to wait and be patient. When we ask our kids to be patient,
are we demonstrating how to do that? Do we show patience to others – in school traffic,
or in the drive-through line?
