I just made my personal goals for 2013 and so did every member of my family. I’m doing a step further by thinking of that one word to represent the direction and focus I’m taking for 2013. One word to serve as an umbrella for my goals this year.
This 2013, my word is GROW. Not grow physically, although gaining a few healthier pounds would be something I’d welcome, but grow by
- becoming more the person I am called to be,
- doing more,
- learning more
in the BEST of my abilities, with the time and resources I have, and NOT AT THE EXPENSE of my physical and emotional health. It’s not going to be easy since I already am juggling tasks every single day. (That’s another growth area I need and want to work on. Time management, as you’ve seen in my goal mindmap.)
I feel that I’ve somewhat plateaued these past years, taking care of my family and the girls, and it is now time for me to grow. A personal experience that’s uniquely for me and by me. It excites me and I’m really hoping that 2013 will bless me with new opportunities and challenges which I’d successfully face and overcome.
So now, before I say, do or commit to something or someone, the question I must ask myself is “Is this helping me grow?”
How about you? What would be your one-word for 2013?
