In Others’ Words: My One Word for 2018

In Others’ Words: My One Word for 2018

  Let’s talk about choosing One Word for the coming year.    2018 is just over a month away, but if you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, then you know that I gave up New Year’s resolutions over a decade ago. Why? All those good intentions — the “I wills” and the “I won’ts” — faded so quickly, and I always misplaced my list of re... Read More »

In Others’ Words: Choosing One Word for 2017

In Others’ Words: Choosing One Word for 2017

Are you ready to talk about your One Word for 2017? I am!  This is my twelfth year to focus on one word. An even dozen. Wow. And once again, I have to admit that I was wondering “Where’s my One Word for 2017?” Most years I’ve known what my One Word was going to be by August or September, but the last two years October has loomed without a One Word in sight. I discovered my ... Read More »

In Others’ Words: Choosing One Word for 2016

One Word. I blogged about this earlier, back in October, in a post titled “Time to Start Thinking About One Word for 2016.” But while I was ready to talk about my One Word for the upcoming new year, I think some of you were just ready to begin pondering your One Word for 2016. So, here I am again, asking the question: Do you have One Word for 2016? This is my eleventh year to focus on ... Read More »

In Others’ Words: Time to Start Thinking About One Word for 2016

One Word. Yes, it’s that time of year again when I prompt you to think about selecting one word to focus on during 2016. This is my eleventh year to focus on one word — and right up until last week, I was thinking, “I’ve got no idea what my word for 2016 is going to be!” Not. A. Clue. And then as I read through a chapter in the Bible, one word jumped off the page. But... Read More »

In Others’ Words: Realizing the Glass is Refillable

In Others’ Words: Realizing the Glass is Refillable

  Y’all know I’ve switched sides several times on the glass half empty vs. glass half full debate. I’ve gone from seeing the glass half empty to seeing the glass half full. Then I embraced a friend’s comment: There’s always something in the glass. Loved that perspective. Still do. But today I’m believing the truth that the glass is always refillable.  Somet...

In Others’ Words: One Word 2015

In Others’ Words: One Word 2015

  You may not be ready to think about the 2015 yet, but I’ve been thinking about the upcoming new year since August. Yes, yes, I have. Those of you who’ve hung around this blog long enough know I don’t do resolutions — rather, I focus on one word for an entire year. Well, this year I realized what next year’s word was fairly early. But, as I like to do each year,... Read More »

In Others’ Words: One Word

I am a one-word woman. It’s been years since I made a New Year’s resolution — much less kept one. I mean, how can I keep a resolution when I can’t find my nice, new list that I wrote up oh-so-carefully? 2014 will be the ninth year that I focus on one word for twelve months. And yes, I know what my word is. But before I share my word for 2014, let me walk down the one-word m... Read More »
