Last year I needed a word to make me smile.
It's no secret if you have been reading my blog or my facebook page that the last few winters have been hard ones for me. I have found that I really struggle with the long days of darkness. The dark along with the continuous pain that I have learned to live with really had me searching for a word to help celebrate those long dark days, which is why I chose Sparkle and truth be told, it really did help.
I loved my Sparkle word!
Last year I jumped into the word thing and bought a "One Little Word" kit and lots of sparkly things to fill up my binder and did I do anything with it? No, no I did not...LOL. I did however fully embrace my word. I guess I didn't need all of the extra's to help me focus on filling my life with Sparkle. I thought of it often and it truly did make me smile.
I think it is a word that will forever stay with me, especially in the winter.
As the calendar turns, I thought about what I wanted for my word this year. Last year my word was chosen to help me get through the dark times, but this year I wanted it to turn it around. Even though I think that I am basically a kind person, practicing kindness is not always easy or something that is our first reflex.
This year I am going to really concentrate on practicing kindness.
How about you...do you have a word for 2016?
