Time is ticking away and I still haven't chosen a main focus word. Have you?
I know some of you have. That's great!
A friend on Facebook asked for three words that we hope will describe how we will live in 2019. I input "Balance, Intention, and Adventure." Today I started my day asking God to help me be that way today.
To me BALANCE means putting my passions and duties into balance in my schedule.
To keep my thoughts and mindset in balance.
To take care of myself physically in balance. (I've found it's easy to focus on aches and pains and what is wrong with my health and I don't want to do that this year. Continue to pray for my healing of tinnitus and head and neck pain and chronic stiffness. Two years ago I bonked my head and I think that is a contributor).
To me INTENTION means adding wisdom to my thoughts and choices. It means thinking through the possible consequences of my choices. I hope living intentionally will help me feel accomplished and motivated.
To me ADVENTURE means a lot less than it would to some women. I'm an introvert. I prefer staying home to read and write or create art. Adventure might mean visiting a new coffee shop, restaurant, or plant store.
To others it may mean going into a mud run or half-marathon. It may mean blowing $13,000 on a cruise with their spouse. It might mean taking a trip to China.
I'm not even sure what adventure might look like this year for me. It will require pushing myself out of my usual default, but I am content to slowly break existing habits, not take drastic measures.
I'm happy and content with my life believe it or not. But I know the value of new adventures too.
I think I might just post all these words around my house. They are ALL motivating.
