One Little Word... Looking Ahead to 2015 with Purpose
As I sat down to scrap our December I felt uncomfortable, like I didn't know how! It has literally been like a year since I've sat down to do this. And there is plenty of dust to prove that!
How could a whole year be gone? How can I not do this anymore? Why did I stop this hobby?
I know the answer to that question, because I sat and thought about it.
Seeking some inspiration I jumped online. I like to see what the long standing talents in scrapbooking are up to, on occasion.
I went to Ali Edwards site. I still get her newsletter, this time I opened it. Advertised there was her One Little Word class. Hmmm. I looked around. I've heard of this before. I've even chosen a word for myself in years past, to inspire me, to keep me focused.
Maybe, just maybe I'll actually take this class. Maybe, just maybe I should try this. I'm sure it has much to offer me. Click. I did it! I joined! I'm excited to see where this takes me, how it inspires me, how it helps to shape me.
What is my word for 2015? That would be PURPOSE. I've thought a lot about this word for the last few months. I am blessed. I have much. I am grateful, but is that enough?
Surely there must be a purpose... and surely that purpose extends beyond me.
2015 will be a big year for our family. As all of these changes occur I want to stay present and aware as I continue to seek and uncover my purpose.
I want to remember the purpose... of having things, of sharing things, of giving, of serving, of earning and spending.
I want to remember my purpose as I photograph, as I race, as I push myself to my own limits, as I try to take better care of my body, as I balance talents and hobbies.
I want to remember my purpose, that my family is at the center of my happiness... all efforts to them first.
I want to study with purpose, pray with purpose, fast with purpose and love with purpose.
I want to seek and do the Lord's will... with full purpose to serve Him.
I want to grow. I want to be better.
I feel that as I define the purpose of things in my life they will be more powerful to me.
I may even find that I don't need things I thought I did, that they serve little to no purpose.
I am excited for this journey...
I went ahead and created a graphic for myself. I'll put it in a place I can see it always.
2015... live with PURPOSE!
