I've been pondering my word for 2019. I think it will be "consistency."

How about you? What word will you focus on for the next year?

Bold

Because when I looked it up, the definition included courageous, fearless, and confident...all three of which I need.

I am struggling between peace and content. Trying to focus on living in the moment and feeling content even when things around me are generally not okay. (Lots of heath issues going on) I need to enjoy what I can, when I can, and not stress or worry over the fact that sometimes I can’t do everything I’d like to do.

Mine is going to be "Pause".

I have a hard time stopping - I always feel that I have to be doing "something". In my mind I equate stopping to relax a bit to being lazy, and I want to break that association.

Pause is also my word. I’m going to practice giving myself time for pause. I can be a bit impulsive. Do I NEED to buy this item? Do I WANT to commit to this? Pause before speaking.

Two words work for me:
KEEP GOING.

Don't want to take one more step on your daily walk to health?
Keep going.

Students driving you nuts and you just want to quit?
Keep going.

God's testing you and you feel like His worst student?
Keep going.

You know you need to physically get yourself and your environment together, but you're so overwhelmed?
Keep going.

Losing motivation? Drive? Patience? Hope?
Keep going.

STRENGTH
Strength to be kind and gracious
Strength to be the best wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend I can be
Strength to know when I need a break and take it
Strenght to be able to give my students what they need and advocate for them
Strenght to live in the moment and enjoy my family and friends and all the greatness in my life

Fun

After DH's Afib scare a year ago, we both agreed we need to do things on our bucket list NOW and make time to do big and little fun things instead of only working hard toward retirement (and planning the bucket list things then). It's been fantastic, so we're planning to do the same for 2019.

antithesis of procrastinate
Old 01-01-2019, 10:57 AM

i love reading everyone's words! they are all great!


i looked up "procrastinate" in order to find its antonym and got:

expedite (make happen faster)


i like it.

if i see something around the house that needs to be done, i want to not glance over and say, "i'll add that to the list"

if i realize a task needs to be taken care of at work, i want to not say, "when i get a minute"

when i think about my health, i want to not "make plans"

i'd like to DO IT--and do it NOW.

So many great, inspiring ideas. I think bookgeek59 best said what I need to do this year: keep going. Bookgeek, I hope you don't mind if I adopt it, too. Runners up were organize, strength, and eat more chocolate (although I eat a fair amount already).
