i've been following my nose around the interwebs tonight and came across a blog talking about choosing a theme word for the year, rather than making resolutions.
it's not a new idea for me, my friend, one time blogger, debbie chooses a word every year (the one i remember is celebrate and i bet she thought no-one was listening) but i have never thought a whole lot about it.
choosing a theme for the year seems a bit more achievable than a resolution. resolutions tend to be specific but at the same time vague: "lose weight" how much and by what means? "get healthy" in which ways?
resolutions just about ask us to fail but a theme word, well it's just a theme, you can't exactly fall off the wagon, you can just adhere to the theme more or less closely
the idea of having a theme seems to be a faith based practice but maybe i just happened to be reading a faith based blog? does anyone know about this?
i'm not sure whether i will choose a theme for the year, i'll have to let the idea percolate a bit and see if anything grabs me.
have you ever chosen a theme word? might you? what word draws you?
courage, cherish, celebrate
grace, generous, gratitude
