It has taken awhile, but I may have finally decided upon my One Little Word to inspire me this year:
I am often(always) hurrying, rushed, pushing to meet deadlines and goals. I want to slow down, take a breath. I need to realize that not everything has to be done now. There is the potential for more – yet.
I do not practice enough patience – yet.
I am not at my ideal weight and fitness – yet.
I do not always remember my goals – yet.
I am not successfully practicing mindfulness – yet.
I like this word because it gives me hope. It allows me to forgive myself. It makes me want to try harder. As I turn 65 next month and take time to reflect, I am both pleased and disappointed at where I am, who I am. I am still a work in progress – Thank goodness.
