That being said, if I wrote down EVERYTHING in a list of New Year's Resolutions, I would get overwhelmed quickly. So besides getting my priorities straight, I thought I would do this one little word thing.
I stole this idea from my cousin.
She got it here.
So what's my one little word?
I am feeling more and more like a little kid throwing a tantrum lately whenever I let my temper get the better of me or I lose patience. So I'm going to practice taking a deep breath and talking even QUIETER whenever I feel like yelling.
This goal began yesterday morning.
I yelled yesterday.
Let's hope I do better today. But, really, my goal is for the whole year! I'm posting this here to remind me that by next New Years, I should be doing pretty well with this word.
And then I can choose a new word. If I've failed by next New Years, well, I'll have to keep it. So let's hope I get past it and can move on to something else by then. Or next year, my post might be kinda boring. :)
ALSO! Another way this word can be applied is by thinking about spiritual things too. If I'm quieter, what will I be able to hear more of that I couldn't pay attention to before?
Happy New Year everyone!
