My "One Words" through the years:
Several months ago one word continually came to me when I was in trying situations, I knew that would be my new "One Word" for 2018...STILL. This word, when used as a noun, sums up my goal for the New Year:
There are several bible verses that contain STILL, my favorites are:
Ecclesiastes 3:7 A time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak.
James 1:19 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
The past several months I have been in challenging situations where I began to question myself and the way I communicate with others. With the word Impeccable as my guiding force I was mindful of my words but I could feel my enthusiasm, and eagerness in a few situations, to take over. My goal for 2018 is to simply be STILL, let the conversation flow, take note of things I would like to address, then speak. I am hoping that those that know me well don't take this as though I am not excited, or having no interest, but that I am still growing and learning at fifty-one years old.
Here I come 2018!
