“For auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and days of auld lang syne.”
I never want to forget who I am, and the people I’ve met that shaped the woman I am today. I know that it’s still the first week of december but this is the time of year where I do a lot of self reflection. I’m a big believer that there is always a lesson to be learned, always room for improvement, and always adjustments that need to be made. I’m never one to be standing still, I need movement. I need progress, especially so I can be a better person. And when the year comes to an end, I usually try to soak up all the Christmas cheer while I start thinking about how I want to improve my life. I usually come up with a word that sums up my goal for the following year. In 2014 it was Simplify. 2015 was Journey.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have one in 2016 because this year was a bit crazy to say the least. But if I did have 1 word to sum it up I think it would be Grace. It was by the grace of God that I got through this year. Through all the heartache and uncertainty that his year brought, I still have faith that God is with me and that He wants what’s best for me. I know, you wonder how? Sometimes I wonder too, but that’s a whole blog post in itself. 🙂
I’m not quite sure what I want my word for 2017, I guess we’ll have to wait and see. What I do know is that I want more of the good things in life, and less of the bad. Don’t you?
