Last January, I wrote about my word of the year, DEEPER.
Here’s a quick recap of where I was focusing this year:
Deeper in my relationship with Christ and submitting my life to Him.
I’ve made strides in this area but really such a long way to go.
Deeper into his word and his promises.
This went well for the first half of the year and then summer came and it went in the toilet and now it’s been back and forth, great some weeks, not so great other weeks.
Deeper in relationship with my husband.
Deeper in relationships with my children.
Yup! It’s been a good year for this!
Deeper into relationships with family and friends.
Ugh. Fail. If anything, I feel I’ve gone in the opposite direction.
Deeper into my thinking/thought life.
I did well on this one too! Teaching myself to stop the thoughts that are just popping into my head, really considering what I say and think. Work in progress but I would say definite progress in this area!
Deeper into working through my fears and struggles.
Well……next question. Ha! I haven’t jumped on an airplane or in an elevator so I guess there isn’t any visible progress. I am working on the irrationality and how to get through that along with just letting the feelings of anxiety come and not fighting it.
Deeper into our city and life here.
Major fail here. Well I guess not a major fail because we are still here, lol. For now. Or maybe for years, so hard to know. Such a back and forth struggle for us. It’s not just me either, it’s the hubby and the kids. Snow and cold are not my favorite, the hubby’s either really. We dream of beaches, warm weather, tennis in January outside, sunshine and swimming more than 3 months of the year. Then we think of making the kids move again, one about to enter high school, one with anxiety, how do we know what’s best? Not sure where this is going but 2015 is the year to decide!
Did you have a word for 2014? Are you picking one for 2015? I’ll be back with my word for 2015 soon, I promise!
