Everything is how we view it, and we all know that we can take a dank, dark look at how things are and think, “Good Lord.” However, I want to share a couple of stories I heard that warmed my heart from some things that children said. One was from something I read, and a woman exclaimed to her child after a day where everything had gone wrong, “Look, the lamp switch is broken. How did that happen?” Her son replied, “I don’t know! It’s a MIRACLE!” Ha! Different perspective. Another child, on a very gray day, said, “Wow, look Mommy, the color of the sky matches your car!” Different perspective. So perspective might be a good Word to choose.
My word this past year was Blessed. I’m not gonna lie, there were moments when I rolled my eyes at that word feeling far from it. But then, but then, of course I would come back to knowing that I was Blessed beyond measure. At the end of this year, I felt badly that I had not done more with that word this year from a creative standpoint. So in an unprecedented move for myself, I am going to choose the word Blessed again for 2021 and my minor word (which is hardly minor) is going to be Align. I somehow feel I can be more in alignment with my day-to-day living and the world and not so focused on the problems and will try, this year, to utilize Blessed to its fullest!
Ok, now it’s your turn! Please post in the comments section of this post what your Word of the Year is and a little bit about why, if you feel like sharing.
May God bless all of you, and I truly hope that each of you is richly Blessed!
