A friend of mine introduced me to the concept of choosing a word to live by for the year. She shared how after much thought and prayer, the word “simplify” was laid on her heart last year, so she opened her heart to what “simplifying” would bring to her life. I began to notice she would reference the word often as she made decisions throughout her week. I loved it.
I am not a big goal setter or someone who sets New Year’s resolutions, but I’d like to live more intentionally. Meaning that I don’t want to miss out on life as life goes by, but to live in it more fully, more open, more present.
