    I like the idea of choosing one concept to work on in your life instead of making a list of resolutions. Last year I chose "inspire".

    I haven't decided yet what it will be for this year.

    What's your One Little Word?

    This quote is my new desktop background and Facebook cover:

    My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be.

    I saw this this morning on the Today show. I'm still thinking about my one word.

    Resolve.

    I've got to get my life in order! I have no job, am sort of homeless (staying with my parents, but it is not permanent). My bank account is totally drained.
    Step 1 starts with a job. Hopefully I can find one- sooner rather than later.
    I never thought I'd say this, but leaving North Carolina has been the biggest mistake of my life :( I had a great job, a fabulous house. Yes, I had to work two jobs and I rarely saw my family. However the no job/no home is was more stressful to me than that was.

    I like this. My word is "joy". I'm going to try to feel it and give it as often as possible. :D

    I think mine is going to be "bold". The Eleanor Roosevelt quote is in my head--"do something every day that scares you", in that vein. Maybe joining a book club where I don't know anyone or standing up and saying something in a meeting instead of stewing over it.

    I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's words! Thank you for sharing your ideas! :thumb:

    This is a great idea!

    Mine is faith. There is a lot up in the air this year and a lot of potential changes coming our way, and I am a worrywart who needs to be reminded that things will work out.

    Yellow, it was a toss up between faith and renew. I chose renew because I am renewing myself in many ways. I am renewing my relationship with Jehovah; haven't been as dedicated as I had been. I am renewing my commitment to my class & finding ways to reach them because they are so talkative & it makes it hard to teach. In the past, I haven't spent our money wisely which has caused my husband to distrust me. So, I am renewing the trust in our relationship.

    Mine is "hands-free." I resolve to deal with people without distractions, such as my phone, email, txts, etc. This goes 100% for my daughters. Hands-free parenting.

    Stop....
    Stop letting other people drag me down.
    Stop caring what other people think of me.
    Stop fearing my mother will be disappointed in me if I screw up.
    Stop feeling like I have to take care of other people even if it has a negative impact on me.
    Stop being afraid to speak my mind because someone might disapprove of my feelings.
    Stop reliving the negative from the past.
    Stop allowing the stress of work consume me at times.
    Stop being in a rut.
