Word of the Year 2012-Accountability
Two posts in a week?
Yes, I’m still having those 99 problems, but it’s Big Daddy’s turn to give the little girls a bath and that buys me fifteen minutes alone with HIS computer.
Each year, Ali Edwards encourages people to chose a word to live by for the year. In the past, I’ve picked a word myself. It’s hard for me to stick to the idea of the word and to live it and I did better last year than most.
This year, the word picked me. I know I said that doesn’t happen to me but this year it did. The positive change I want to affect in my life revolves around being more accountable. To others. To myself.
It’s too easy to set a goal, to know what it takes to reach your goal and then to fall short as you fall prey to the sin of letting yourself not be accountable. This is a huge thing for me.
Let me say this again.
This is a huge thing for me.
What would happen if I stopped making excuses. If I stopped brushing things off. What could I accomplish? More?
Oh, btw Allison W–a few days ago on Facebook, you told someone something cryptically that while you hadn’t spent 20 focused minutes, that you had a plan. That spoke to me and during a time Wednesday that I had set aside to do something, focused, my word came to me. Almost three weeks late, but better late than never. So, thanks
