The year 2010 is here already!
Wow! Last year went by so quickly...
there were so many happy memories that my family made...
I can't believe it is over already.
I was going to do a year in review post,
but I couldn't decide which pictures to use.
Too many good ones:-)
Well, with every new year comes new resolutions.
(Or in my case...the same resolutions that I failed at last year.)
My 10 for '10 are...
1. Daily time in God's Word
2. Exercise more and lose 10 lbs.
3. More 1 on 1 with my kids
4. Better control with my temper & bad moods
5. Have a better financial plan
6. Try not to stress out so much
7. Scrapbook way more
8. Regular dates with the hubby
9. Organize and clean
10. Do more fun projects from my in box
So, I have been seeing this on quite a few posts...
the one word for the year.
In fact, I think most probably stemmed from Ali Edwards,
or at least that is the main one where I found it:-)
I have been mulling this over for the last few days,
just trying to find that one word that I want to encompass my entire year 2010...
and today it finally jumped out at me.
Dictionary.com describes this word like this.
Noun - a temporary stop or rest, in speech or action
Verb - to dwell or linger; to make brief stop; wait; hesitate
I want to remember to...
Pause and listen for God to speak to me.
Pause before reacting.
Pause for my hubby and kids.
Pause for myself and others.
Pause before eating and spending.
Pause and do the projects I already started.
Pause long enough to remember the moment.
Hopefully with this word at the forefront of my mind,
it will help me avoid impulsive and wrong decisions.
I can see how hitting the pause button will help me with my resolutions.
What word would you use for your year???
The hubs work had a Christmas bowling party for the family today. My word for the year even applies to me taking pictures. Pause and get in the shots. Pause so there is no blur:-)
(of course that means school and the kids won't be too happy about that)
