I don't know about you, but creating New Years Resolutions can be a daunting task. I have high expectations for the year to come but then I'm always disappointed when my goals don't pan out the way I would like. So about five years ago, I decided to take a different approach to my goals for the new year.
Just one. I would pick one word to be my guiding star for the new year. In past years I have chosen words like Simplify, Care, Joy, and Patience.
And my word for 2020: GRATITUDE. 2019 was a challenging year for me and my family and I had a hard time throughout the year not being dragged down by the challenges we faced. So this year, I'm determined to have a more positive attitude, which I believe stems from having a grateful heart.
In order to keep this word in the forefront of my mind, I bought myself a gratitude journal from Promptly Journals that I will try and write in every morning before I start my day. This journal includes daily prompts to get you focused on the things you are grateful for.
So what is your one little word for 2020? What will be your guide for your choices and actions throughout the year? Need some ideas? Try one of these.
