One Little Word
Happy 2014! Holy crap, that was fast. Everyone makes resolutions for the new year and I'm no different. I usually make and break them in one day. Then I have 364 days until I have to do it again- that one day of living my resolutions is tough!
This year I'm doing something different, I hope it helps, no, I"m going to believe it will help. This year I'm participating in One Little Word and the word I've chosen is Believe. I know that seems kind of cliche but my greatest weakness is that I don't believe in myself.
Many of the things that I don't do, that I would like to do, I just don't do because I don't believe that my attendance, participation, help, etc., matters or makes a difference.
I believe I can change that. I am going to start believing in myself, start believing that I matter, that I'm important and that I can make a difference. I'm not saying that because I'm having a pity party, I think most of us feel that way, at least a little. We have no idea what our impact is on anything. This year, I'm going to find out.
So far I have signed up for two volunteer opportunities, one at a museum and the other tutoring English. I have the time so I'll give the time and I believe it will make a difference.
I'll let you know how it goes, I have plans for how believe will affect all areas of my life, my health, my happiness, my relationships, my faith and my creativity.
For now, I'll just believe. Some days, that alone, will be enough.
