Every year I like to come up with a word to describe how I’ll approach the coming year. It’s the word will help me through the next 365 days. What word will inspire me as I find more ways to grow, change and improve?
The 2016 Word of the Year is Faith.
If the past year has taught me anything, it’s that I am the biggest obstacle to fulfilling my goals. I’ve come to see how often I second guess myself. I let fear (and responsibility) to get in the way of me going after the things that I want.
In 2016, I want to have more faith in myself. I want to put my mind, body and soul into the things that I want. I need to start believing that yes, things may be hard. But wow, they can also be amazing. I have faith that I can be amazing. I also want to start realizing that even at it’s worse, things won’t be bad. I am strong, intelligent, inspired, motivated and a believer in good things.
I will spend the year having Faith in myself. I have Faith in the blessings God has given me. And I have Faith that He won’t let me fail.
It’s only the 3rd day of the new year but it already feels amazing.
