For the last couple of years, I have joined Ali Edwards in choosing a single word to focus on for the new year. At the beginning of 2012, I chose the word "open". Boy, what an adventure that turned out to be---from being "opened" during surgery, to being "open" to new things at church and leadership positions, and finally being "open" to a new relationship. It's amazing how choosing and focusing on a single thought or word can give you some clarity and direction throughout the year. (2012 - open; 2011 - purpose; 2010 - risk)
After thinking about it a great deal the last couple of days, I've decided that my word for 2013 will be:
Naturally, I will soon be beginning a new married life, but I need to make beginnings in many different areas of my life and hope that this word will serve as a catalyst to start doing things that I've been putting off.
So, welcome 2013 and all the beginnings that come with it.
