Word of the Year

Okay, so I've seen everyone doing these "Word of the Year" posts and seeing as how I've been unable to finish my Valentine's crafts because Miss Diva went on a craft binge and used up all my felt and glitter while we were at a Wrestling Dual on Saturday, I decided that today's post will join the ranks of many that have decided to sum up what they want for their new year with one word.  So much simpler than a gazillion resolutions that I will probably break within the first week.  :D

Of course, I'm way behind schedule with the whole office makeover thing, so I missed the actual link party, BUT I did want to give credit where credit was due.  :)

So...

My word of the year...

Etsy
Such a little thing, a word, but oh the possibilities when you apply it to your life.

I don't know about y'all, but I have a huge problem with telling myself all the reasons why I can't accomplish something.  Now, that's not to be confused with legitimate reasons why you must decline a request or an offer because being able to say, "No." is a good thing.  I'm talking about things that you dream about being able to do and then you give yourself a laundry list of excuses about why it isn't possible.

Google
I am always telling myself that I can't do this because of that.  I can't do that because of this.  And there are so many things in life that I want to accomplish!  As I get older, it has been impressed on me more and more that life is short.  Too short.  I think the death of my father really drove that point home.  How many times did I hear him say, "One day I'm going to..."  One day never came.  And there was so much that he didn't have the opportunity to do not because he didn't have the money to do it, but because he was so busy making a living that he didn't make a life.  I don't want that to be me.  Except for me, I don't want it to be because I spent too much time telling myself all the reasons why I couldn't do it, instead of just doing it.

Whether it be my relationship with God, my relationship with my husband and children, or even something simple like the things I want to do with this house...

Because really...

Its A Crafty Life

So when I'm feeling frustrated by life, which happens to us all sometimes...

Because I really need to...

She Lived By The Sea

And no excuses or putting things off will delay the inevitable passage of time.

So, BELIEVE is my word and this is the quote that I will be referring to for 2012 to help me remember why I chose it in the first place:

Melody Ross
Because really, it matters not how many people believe in me, if I don't have the same belief in myself.

Hey, that's my word of the year, too. Maybe we can believe in ourselves together. :)
