My One Word: Forgive
Forgive. I could try and pick any other word to focus on, but this word keeps popping up from the page. I keep coming back to it, I need to come back to it. I still carry much anger and hurt in my heart on some things and slowly I am learning to let go, but I want to really make it my focus in 2016. If I can forgive more easily, I will become a more compassionate person. If I forgive more easily, I can become a more patient person. If I can forgive more easily, I can become a less worrisome, more relaxed person. If I can forgive more easily, I will feel like I am closer to modeling my life like that of the Living God. The hardest part of choosing this word for me for 2016 will be to forgive my worst enemy, the one who says the most terrible things to me, the one who tries to beat me down at every turn, the one who wrongs my loved ones, the one who stares back at me in judgment, myself.
