Purpose. Word for 2013.

Last year my word for the year was "Release."  I would say my word as I stopped trying to control the uncontrollable.  It gave me power to release things that were unimportant and stressful.  I wanted my word for this year to work just as well for me.

Two weeks ago my word came to me as I was cleaning the toilet.  Because all good thinking comes when you are scrubbing the nasty, right?  My word for the year is

PURPOSE
The definition from Webster:
1. something set up as an object or end to be attained: intention: resolution: determination 
2. a subject under discussion or an action in course of execution: by intent: intentionally. 
 


I want to live with intent.  I want to determine to make my life full of joy and love.  I want to purpose my life so I don't miss what I value. If I'm living with purpose I won't miss out what's important to me and my family.  The trivial things will slip through my fingers and I'll hold on tightly to what is truly important.  My family, God, peace, my strength.


This morning I saw that Alissa from Rags to Stitches stole my word.  Just kidding!  She chose the word purposeful.  I must say she defines it much better than I.  She wrote,

I want everything I do or say to have purpose. 
Whether it is to teach, learn, travel, do, work, blog…. I want it to all be with purpose. 
I want to be more purposeful in my friendships. To not all allow being busy to be an excuse. 
I want to be more purposeful with my children. To anticipate their needs and meet them. 
I want to be more purposeful with my husband. To find things that are completely non-work related to do and talk about. 
Most of all I want to be more purposeful with my relationship with my Abba Father. To spend time and meditate on His word and hide it in my heart. 

Beautiful! I want the same things for my life.  I want purpose in all I do and say.
I will purpose to hold onto what matters most.

A couple of years ago, my word was "release" as well. I don't know if it really helped me or not, but it was nice to say the word to myself when times got stressful.

Last year, I didn't have a word, and it was a better year than 2011. Go figure.

Another common component of the Victorian tree is fake snow. This stuff, called "flocking" comes in a spray can. It is used to frost the branches of the tree so it looks like it is covered in a sifting of freshly fallen snowflakes.Fiber Optic Christmas Tree

Modern Christmas Tree
When it comes to christmas tree decorating the latest fad is the upside-down christmas tree. Is there any good reason besides the fact that it is a really hot xmas trend that you should actually buy one of these? First of all it may help a bit to look a bit at the history of the upside down xmas tree. That might help you decide if this type of christmas tree is for you.

Superior Flux Male Enhancement said...

Superior Flux Male EnhancementThis era seems to be all about big things, from phones to TVs to buildings-- everything supersized. Taking a look at this hype brings the question, is bigger really better? Maybe not for everything. But when it comes to men, they believe that the bigger their junk, the better they are at sex. Women like it big as well because their G-spot is more likely touched with a penis having greater scope. When that happens, a woman will experience strong arousal leading to intense orgasms.
