As we enter the New Year, many will be making goals, resolutions, and dreaming big dreams. I want to simply this year with my “New Year’s Resolution.” I am going to chose ONE WORD to focus my heart. A word to move me forward. A word to help me remember the past. A word to direct me. To keep me on track for my dreams for 2016. A word God can use to draw me closer to Him. I wrote about my word here. And here.
Today Tiffany shares her One Little Word for 2016.
Hi. I’m Tif and I blog over at Bright on a Budget, a style and beauty blog.
My word of the year is EMPOWER. This it the first time I’ve ever done a word of the year. I had never really given the concept much thought before, but when my friends starting discussing their word of the year, this one immediately popped into my head.
According to Google, empower means to “make (someone) stronger and more confident. . . .” This year, I want to purposefully empower. First, I want to empower myself to be the best mom, wife, sister, friend, employee, and blogger that I can be. I want to stop making excuses and get back in the habit of encouraging myself more. To empower myself, I have to knock down any walls of self-doubt and build more self-confidence. I have to tell myself, “You CAN do this!”
I also want to empower others. Sometimes, it’s so easy to tear each other down, even without meaning to. So I want to place an emphasis on empowering others to succeed–my husband, my family, my friends, and even complete strangers. I want to give praise and encouragement. Instead of saying, “I hope that works out,” I want to say, “What can I do to help you achieve this?”
Think about it–if we all took the time to EMPOWER each other, then it’s hard to tell what we could all accomplish. I pray that God leads me and helps me to focus on empowerment this year, not just for myself but for others too.
