One Word – Gratitude

1 Comment

Every year I choose one word to guide me throughout the year.  It’s easier to remember one word than a slew of resolutions that I will probably break.  With age, comes wisdom.   Don’t get me wrong, I still set goals in each of the categories, family, career, health, etc., but the one word gives me a more centralized focus.  I’m more apt to make my goals if I am specific, clear and realistic.  I like moving forward; and this provides the perfect opportunity for me.

My word this year is GRATITUDE.  I have been given so much.  I must never forget that I have been blessed beyond measure, and that when something doesn’t go well, it’s a minor bump.

In my classroom, we have two days a week where we pick a word to focus on for the day.  What’s nice about this is that it does keep goals clear for the kids.  They are only 7, but they can remember words like respect and responsible and caring and outstanding.  What if everything I did in my day was OUTSTANDING?  Can you imagine the day you would have?

I passed by a quote the other day, I wish I would have written it down or gotten the author’s name, but it was something like this:   Live as if everything is rigged in your favor.  How positive is that?

And now, if every day is lived in pure Gratitude, anything new that I receive will be like frosting, right?

Happy New Year my dear friends, and may your day be filled with much joy and exciting adventures!

Namaste,

Marie
