I've heard of people picking a word for the year, and trying to apply it to their lives. Actually, I have heard it several times last year, and I decided that I would give it a try.

I sort of struggled finding the perfect word, but then all of a sudden it hit me.


Word of 2013 – Focus

Yesterday, I told you about how I needed to be thankful for Winter instead of wishing it were warmer weather. I started focusing on the positives instead of the negatives.

I've always been a silver-lining-seeking kind of girl.

Believe it or not, chemo brain is real. I know some people have laughed when I say that my chemo brain is kicking in, but it really does. I have to really focus to overcome those times.

I need to focus on business. I will be telling you a little more about my new business later this month, but right now I need to get more focused on the details.

I need to focus on The Word of God. I have fallen away from my daily reading, and really miss it.

See why I picked "Focus" as my word of the year? I could go on and on listing things I need to focus on. And I will have my word posted around the house to help remind me to just focus.

Do you choose a word for the year? If so, what did you choose for 2013?

    A good (life long) friend had brain cancer – and a very new kind of chemo which went directly to her brain. She really can relate to the word chemo-brain. – it actually caused her to go temporarily blind. Anyway – she is doing so great now — eye sight much improved — and she is walking for exercise. But that chemo brain still does bother her thinking and concentrating and she hasn’t had a treatment for over 6 months.
    But focus is a good word for all of us. And the direction of it is important, too. Thank you.

    “Focus” is something that I could personally use more of. It seems that the older I get, the less focus (and patience) I have. Thanks for inspiring me to concentrate on re-learning to focus in the upcoming year!

    What a great word focus is, Julie! Mine was shown to me a month or two ago…”Nurture”.

    That is a great word and I should consider it also! I usally have too many things going on at once and try to get everything in my head done. I need to reign in my thoughts and work on fewer things at a time…. Happy New Year.
