Every year, I pick a theme word for my upcoming year. Then, I focus on the word all year. It helps me to grow in certain areas of my life because I am constantly thinking about the word and what it means to me. I always pray about it so that my heart is where it is supposed to be.
For 2017, my word will be love. I want to react with love, live every day with love, learn how to be my own best friend, love and nurture my body, and freely give my love to others. When love becomes my immediate reaction, I believe my life will change.
We all have so many reactions in any given day. While I want to always respond with love, sometimes my other emotions triumph what my heart really feels. When I respond with anything other than love, it makes me feel bad—as well as others.
Love is really all that matters anyway. God is love.
Love and blessings,
