In less than 24 hours the ball will have dropped and the New Year will begin. I’ve always used this time to reflect and reminisce on the past year, specifically my One Word.
As I pondered 2014 there were so many moments where I strived to live intentionally, and succeeded. There were also a few missed opportunities.
Every waking moment, decision or turn on my life path was made with intentional perspective. I learned to say “no” on more than one occasion, and I also found my voice when life’s negativity threatened my intentional living.
The biggest lesson I learned was to grant myself Grace when life is busy. There were times when my choices had to go in one direction, and my heart wanted to go another.
Triathlon training was more difficult this year, because of this reason. However, I quickly learned that a PR didn’t matter when compared to the “good luck” phone messages from my husband and kiddos.
Late summer brought about more challenges. I knew I couldn’t conquer them on my own, and tough decisions were made. Living intentionally gave me the courage I needed to make the best choice for my family and me.
I have no idea what 2015 holds, but I do know that Intentional Living will be an integral part.
As for my 2015 One Word?
Well, you will just have to tune in tomorrow to find out.
Happy New Year!
