Word of the Year

I've done this before. In 2013 and 2014 I chose a word for the year. I like having a goal for improvement tucked away in my mind. Choosing a word to focus on for a year works better for me than resolutions. It just sort of hangs there in my mind providing a niggling sense of inspiration, or guilt, as the case may be.

I've put thought and prayer into choosing this word, that is not the norm for me. I make decisions quickly and rarely deliberate for long, but I'm earning to be more intentional {that would have been a good word...} so I took my time and put some thought into it.

My word for 2018 is:


Y'all want to know how serious I am about this {and how supportive my husband is}? We added it to our budget. So that I can casually invite someone out for coffee or lunch. If that doesn't make it official, well, that and announcing it to the world on the blog, I don't know what does.

I think eggs (toad in a hole) fit this post, right? Even 2 eggs. You know, for sharing.
I want to focus on relationships I already have and build a stronger sense of community, but I also want to focus on building new relationships. {Who am I kidding? That should probably not be plural, let's not go crazy here!} I want to focus on real, authentic relationships, because I might as well face it, I'm over 40. What you see is what you get. I don't have time or energy for pretense.

I know this is an attainable goal, I also know it doesn't happen without intentionality.

So here is to community and coffee shop chats in 2018!
