A few years ago, I joined the gang that chooses one word to strive for each year. A couple that I can remember have been focus and purpose. This year I chose, Real.
I want to be real. With everything.
Have you looked at Pinterest lately? All the photos are so pretty and put together. If my photos look like that it is because they are staged. I don’t want to stage things anymore. I used to test things I found on Pinterest, but then I didn’t take photos because it was such a mess. No more.
I have a messy house! I’m not a great housekeeper. I have four dogs, therefore I will have dog hair in my photos. Can you believe I used to edit those out if they were noticeable? I did!
I want to lose weight, but I just ate a chocolate covered peanut cluster. I drink too much Diet Dr. Pepper, and not enough water.
I love to read! I would much rather stay home with my husband and our dogs, and read than hang out with other people. Just being real.
I hate doing cardio! But, I’ve started reading while on the treadmill so, I am tolerating it.
I love Jesus, my husband, our kids and grandkids! My Momma, my Daddy, and my sister too! I try to love everyone like Jesus would do! But I fall short, and I don’t really like a few. Just keepin’ it real!
Just hang around for a while, things are changing around here. I quit writing so much because I felt like I had to sugar coat everything. There might still be some sugar, but it will be real.
Do you have one word for the year? What is it? Will you share?
