My friend, Layla, has a “word for the year”. I thought it was such a neat idea that I adopted it. Then Tobi Fairley adopted it from me then…. well, let’s just say it is spreading rapidly. So here we are with a linky party for all of our words. You should join us!
My word is REACH and it has great meaning for me this year.
I have so many goals, dreams, ambitions all of which are stretching me to REACH them.
I have health goals that I must reach in order to have the stamina to do all of the things I want to do. Tobi has been my inspiration here as she has hit the mark in a big way with her “I’m getting healthy and fit no matter what it takes attitude last year.” She did it too!
I have career goals that require that I reach out to others for help.
I get so excited when I can help a friend reach a goal that at first seemed so unattainable. I have to remember that it is a blessing for others to do the same for me.
There are so many promises out there just waiting for us to reach out in child-like faith and take them.
Therefore, this year I will reach out a compassionate hand to help those that are hurting.
I will reach out to new friends for who knows where that might lead.
I will reach for the stars and really go after what I want.
And I will do it all with a sense of abandonment that comes from a heart of joy because “the joy of the Lord is my strength”.
What about you? Who has inspired you to live a richer life and what word says it all for you this year?
