I debated whether to link celebrations during these holiday weekends, but I decided we must claim celebrations on the ordinary days and the holidays. I hope you carve out a few moments to document your celebrations.Happy New Year!
Since 2006 I've selected a word to live by for the year. Last year I chronicled my decade of One Little Words with this little video.
Today I say hello to a new little word. I remind myself that it's not about letting go of unhurried, a word that I will forever be grateful to -- it saved me from the rat race of life -- rather, I'm inviting something new into my life.
Unhurried was a game-changer for me. I quit rushing and began to savor. I learned to do my best and let God do the rest. I learned about rest, too. Unhurried, more than any other word altered the course I was on. I kind of feel sorry for the word that has to follow it.
I've been making lists of words for the last six weeks, waiting for one to find me. I thought one did until another word lassoed me this morning.
Treasure. I like that it's both a noun and a verb. Since it just caught me today, I don't have much more to say about it. I'm sure I'm in for a treat.
I love living with intention around a single word. I can't wait for the celebrations to treasure this year. Thanks for celebrating alongside of me each week.
