As I mentioned the other day, I am NOT a fan of New Year's Resolutions. Last year I decided that I would pick one word to sum up what I would like to work on/accomplish in the new year. Last year's word was SIMPLIFY.
I gave this year's word a lot of thought. Many rolled around in my head before I chose the one I thought would fit best.
This year's word is the perfect predecessor to last year's word...the word I chose...
Yup, I chose the word quality.
After simplifying last year, I realized that if I had focused a bit more on quality (rather than quantity in most instances), I wouldn't have had as much to simplify to begin with.
I want to focus on quality time with my family, as the girls have gotten older the amount of time I get to spend with each lessens with each day...I want that time to be quality time.
I want to spend quality time with my hubby...all too soon we will be spending a lot more time together, and I want to be connected.
I want to have quality relationships with my friends, taking the time to call them each week, be involved in their lives no matter how busy I am or they are.
I want to spend quality time in the Word, as I know He has a plan for this year.
I want to be surrounded with quality things, things I took the time to think about, truly need, rather than bought on a whim or because it was the latest trend. How many of those went out the door when simplifying last year? too many to count!
I want to take the time to nourish my body with quality food, good for me food, rather than run through the drive thru because it's easy.
I want to focus on Quality versus Quantity!!!
I've found if I focus on just one thing, something that effects different areas of my life just the same...it is easier for me to keep my resolution.
What will you be focusing on this New Year?
