I've never chosen a word of the year like some people do so this is a first!
I'm a New Year's Resolution kind of girl because I love a fresh start and goal setting.
This year I have a few resolutions but decided to go with a word of the year too.
One word is easy and frames your thinking if you choose carefully.
Let me explain why I chose this word... life is easy and flows smoothly some days
and we say everything is wonderful. Right?
Other days are hard. HARD
The car won't start...someone hurts our feelings... sometimes people are very sick...
unspeakable things happen in the world and get plastered on TV.
There is always something wonderful if you look for it.
I'm not trying to be Pollyanna about this. I believe this is true with every ounce of my being.
Wonderful is an optimistic word.
Wonderful describes the color of a blue sky the day after a Texas tornado.
Wonderful is the last piece of Christmas cheesecake found in the fridge.
Wonderful is an unexpected rose blooming in winter.
Wonderful is a kitty sleeping peacefully all day.
Wonderful is knowing someone loves you.
Wonderful is everywhere.
Spotting wonderful isn't hard for me but I've noticed that the more you find it...
the more it's there for you to see. I want to grab all of it!
That's my word this year.
What's yours? I'd love to know.
Louis Armstrong is wonderful after all these years. ♥
Oh how I love this song.
