Word for 2013

Each year I have a one word resolution. Last year my word was “relinquish”. I am a big (ha, ha) of a control freak. I want to fix people’s problems because I ALWAYS KNOW WHAT’S BEST

Seriously, I know I don’t , but I want to help, and throughout the year I tried (not always successfully to let go and let them fix their own. This year my word is LOVE. Simple enough. One of my sons shared something he learned: “love means working towards someone else’s success”. If we really love others, we went them all to be successful and do well. That means letting go of envy, jealousy, gossiping, pettiness, judging, etc. It simply means uplifting, encouraging, being happy for others, etc. Shhhh--don’t tell anyone, but that isn’t always easy for me.

I do like writing down my word because it helps me feel a little more accountable.  You see right now as I write this, I am very discouraged, but I'm trying to let go of some negative thoughts and seek for a better attitude.  Wish me luck!!!

SIDENOTE #1:  I was going to do a post about howI am determined to get back to blogging.  I'm not sure how to do it.  But here is my plan, I will try to post every two weeks.  We'll see how that goes.

SIDENOTE #2:  Do you realize that I am almost done with my 365 project.  I started on March 20th, so I have close to 6 weeks left.  It has been great fun, and I have learned a lot.

Here are just a few shots I have posted in the last couple of weeks.

I still have a lot to learn but I'm sure having a GREAT time.
