I am so excited to take another year to participate in One Word 365. This tribe has taught me the importance to not just make “resolutions” each year, but to have a word as a lens through which you look at your year in a new and special way.
As I looked back yesterday at how “Anticipate” shaped my 2013, I realized the next step in my journey. It has made the hard times easier to have a new sense of hope; to know that the negative doesn’t have to define me if I keep looking ahead and hoping for the positive. Admittingly, this is not the easiest thing to do. It is natural to take the setbacks in life and allow them to set you back.
When a dream you have still has not come to fruition.
When a promise is broken.
When you experience another heartache.
When you still struggle to keep your head above water.
In 2014, I want to learn how to keep moving forward…even in the “desert.” I want to keep my eyes focused on the dreams and hopes I have and keep going toward those things. I want to continue to move forward into the person God wants me to be and toward what He has in store for my life. (If last year was any indication…I’m in for some AMAZING things ahead if I just keep moving FORWARD.)
What are your dreams for the next 365? How do you want to look back upon this year? How do you want to be different?
