Hey, friends! Happy 2015!!!
On January 1 of last year I shared some "words of wisdom" I was planning on living by in 2014. I printed them out and stuck them on my mirror, bulletin board and in my Bible.
This year, when I was thinking of my "theme" for the year some sage words from my favorite ice queen kept popping into my heart and so I ran with it :)
If I'm being totally honest, I'm a dweller.
I've been this way since I was little - I don't have a hard time making decisions - but after I make them I tend to dwell on it. Big things, little things. I dwell. I can't tell you how many times my mom has said the words, "make your decision and LIVE IT" to me.
It's not just in decision making, but in other circumstances as well.
Someone says something about me that I know isn't true or hurts my feelings - I dwell.
I have a crummy day at school - I dwell.
I can't find something I'm looking for - I dwell.
I feel like I've disappointed someone - I dwell.
I wish I could be more like Taylor Swift and just shake it off :), but I don't think that's in my DNA.
So this year, I'm making a concerted effort to LET IT GO! I'm choosing to dwell in Him and not on circumstances or situations. I'm a busy lady (aren't we all!) and I don't want to spend my time dwelling on inconsequential things. Instead I want to get deeper into His word, spend more quality time with my kids and husband and put effort and energy into friendships.
I'm planning on applying "let it go" in my parenting as well - picking up the family room before we head out on a walk? Let it go. Missing puzzle pieces? Let it go. Legos EVERYWHERE? Let it go. :)
So, what words do you plan on living by this year? Do you pick a "theme" for the year? I'll be sharing some of my goals next Tuesday for the first installment of "Show and Tell Tuesday" - but this is my "big picture" ;)
Tomorrow is Friday Favorites, but for now I'll leave you with this fun video I put together. I've watched it at least half a dozen times and I MAY have teared up after several of those viewings. hahaha
I hope you all have a fantastic day and start the new year with family!
