I started this year with one little word as my guide: Seek I have seen scrapbookers use this method to motivate their year and have always loved the idea but never done it. This year I thought I would try it out. So I thought and thought and finally settled on Seek.
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord , have never forsaken those who seek you.
This year I want to seek God more and improve me personal relationship with him because the last couple years I have been way to lax and excused my laziness with being a new mother. But there are no excuses in my book for not working on my relationship with God. So I strive to seek God and His plans for my life as best I can.
This year I want to seek myself. In that I want to find my niche, be confidant in myself, body image, personality, beliefs, everything, and that will take some seeking to get there because I always had issues with confidence and knowing exactly who I am. I don’t know if I will get to the point of being perfectly myself as we are always changing and nobodies perfect. I would like to start down that path of loving myself and being happy with what I am and where I am currently instead of always dreaming of what could be.
This year I want to seek how to make these last months as a family of three memorable and also seek out how to be a great mother as we transition into being a family of four. My husband and I fully believe our children are the Lords and He has intrusted them to us to care for, love, and raise them in a Christ like manner. I haven’t been doing the best job on being a fun and Christ like mom lately with feeling so awful with this pregnancy but I am hoping to seek out how to find that balance for the rest of my pregnancy, and continue it throughout the year.
This year I want to seek out simplicity. I have to much stuff. :) To put it simply! ha. I would like to declutter, detach myself from stuff, and get rid of things. This also stretches to organizing and being on top of things like meal planning, activities and such. I am relatively organized but I like pretty things and my crafting, thrifting, vintage loving self has issues with leaving things behind. ;) So seeking simplicity is a must this year as our family expands.
Do you have a word this year? I would love to hear about it or just your goals.
The photos in this post have nothing to do with my word of the year. I did the 10 on 10 and haven’t got to post them yet. But as you can see it was a lazy day at home. ;) One of the best ways to spend your day.
Thanks for stopping by!
