My Word for the Year
Friday, January 6, 2017
We're almost there. We've almost made it through the first week of 2017.
How did you do?
Did you tackle to-do lists like a boss? Did you go to the gym every day? Did you start working on your book?
If not, that's OK. Give yourself a bit of grace.
Grace -- that's my word for 2017.
Grace is my word for the year because I need a reminder to be gentle with myself, because sometimes I need to give myself a break and others the benefit of doubt.
This doesn't meant 2017 won't be the year of the hustle. I plan to work harder than I ever have before to make all of my 2017 dreams come true.
But sometimes gumption and grit aren't enough. Sometimes you need grace.
Sometimes you can't rely solely on willpower. Sometimes you need a higher power. If you're a person of faith, perhaps that power is God. If not, perhaps that power is a belief in your muse or a belief in the causes you defend. Whatever it may be, believe in something bigger than yourself. Believe that this power will give you all you need to do the things you need to do. Believe this power will give you grace.
