My life has been completely overrun by the English language lately.
The grammatical writing course that I’ve been taking is running it’s course (see what I did there?) and my exam is quickly approaching on the 14th.
I suppose I should begin studying now.
I’m a procrastinator, people. I work better under pressure.
In order to
avoid studying rest my weary brain from the never-ending stream of predicate verbs, dependant noun clauses, infinite phrases and the many rules for hyphenating compound words, I decided to choose my word for the year.
Have you chosen your word?
They call it the Unresolution:
Our resolutions seldom work because they focus on the type of person we want to become rather than who God wants us to be. Many people do not see God at work in their lives simply because they don’t know what to look for. So, what if our hopes for the year centered on who God wanted us to become instead?
It’s okay to want to be a better you—and the New Year is a natural time to start. The question is, how? My One Word replaces broken promises with a vision for real change. When you choose a single word, you have a single focus. You are moving toward the future rather than swearing off the past.
With My One Word, you’re right where God wants you: in His hands. And it’s not an extreme makeover we’re talking about. This year, the goal is to see His work in one area of your life.
I’ve been struggling with myself lately, and the word that seemed to jump out at me was Happiness.
Hubby bought me a fantastic book about happiness recently… but I’ll come back to that in a separate post…
As I began to dissect what that meant to me, though, I realized that I am very VERY happy, I’m just scattered and unsure how to put everything that makes me happy back in order… sort of organizing my happiness, so to speak.
it makes sense in my head
What kind of person do I want to be this year? I want to be organized, fun, devoted, I want to expand my education even more, be more thoughtful,
patient more patient than I usually am.
I want to get it together.
Hmmm… pull out the dictionary. What, exactly, is the meaning of “together”?
(of a single thing) into or in a condition of unity, compactness, or coherence
That’s exactly what I want! Unity… for my thoughts, my spirit, my family … compactness… to leave behind the excess and unnecessary overabundance that can run me down… oh my goodness coherence!!
So… it’s decided.
My word for 2012 :
