It’s that time of the year when people start setting resolutions and picking a word for the year. I am not setting any resolutions – I have a constant goal to take better care of myself and my people, but I don’t consider that a resolution because I don’t think I’ve ever really done a bad job of that in the past.
I do like to pick a word for the year though. This year I have chosen to focus on Compassion. Compassion for myself – stop blaming myself and start forgiving myself. Compassion for other – if we all had a little bit more compassion for our fellow man maybe things wouldn’t feel as scary as the do these days.
Instead of jumping to conclusions or assuming the worst, I am going to focus on being compassionate to those around me.
What is your word for the year?
I’m still quilting away out here in Washington and would love to quilt for you too! I am trying to go back to school to finish my teaching credential so feel free to help me pay for it by hiring me!
Best of luck to everyone in 2017!
