My One Word: ENHANCE
As I have been growing the past several years in my walk, and now after turning 65, what once seemed so big and so important doesn’t quite seem that way. I began to focus more on what really makes me feel good and my role in life as opposed to reaching for goals that really only did me good and didn’t put my true talents to work for my purpose here.I have been thinking about my possible words since this fall…words would come to mind while in the car, walking in the woods or the beach, being around kids in school and other experiences. But this year I really wanted my word be one that I could use each day to help me to help others in their walk and possibly be a positive experience in their day while at the same time I wanted my word to reflect what I receive from others and different experiences around me each day. I love the gifts and talents that I have been given as a teacher/educator for over 40 years, but also the ability to add some happy smiles to those who need them throughout some difficult times in their lives…feels so good and nothing gives me more satisfaction. God has given me the right stuff, I just want God to pull me and place me where I can do the most. Last year I started seeing and feeling my role a lot more clearly, and I like it! Each day I look back and reflect on those people or experiences that made my day better, and I want to make sure I am always doing things that also make others have a better day and outlook, or even change their life in some small way.. I see every day how I am “enhanced” by others in their deeds and actions and experiences, and I also try and reflect on how I might have “enhanced” others in some way whether consciously or unconsciously. I want my actions to enhance others simply to be natural and not just planned to check off my box. Children and nature have always been the things that pump me up and enhance my life so much, and I can us that to also enhance others! Thus…”My One Word” this year is “ENHANCE”…and I’m lovin’ it…it feels good and right, and I look forward to witness how I am enhanced and how I enhance throughout the year! ENHANCE!!!!!!!!!
