My One Word: Faithful
I chose the word “faithful” because I need to work on being so in every area of my life, to the core and not just on the surface. I need to work on being faithful to myself, improving my health, my relationships and responsibilities. I’ve been in limbo for many years, slowly retreating from life. Loving God, but not engaging Him as I should. Going to church, but not regularly and not being as involved as I could be or used to be. Starting a project, but not finishing it, most notably working on my weight. I have given up too easily in the past, or just allowed myself to be distracted by other things – even good and worthwhile things, that take me away from faithfully executing things till the successful, effective end. I work & push hard for others, but I’ve short changed myself by not finishing tasks that are vital to my well being and my overall effectiveness as a wife, mother, student, entrepreneur, and child of God. I want to see for myself what faithfulness to the gifts, talents and responsibilities God has given me looks like.
