|My ONE WORD for 2016|
I resisted at first. PERSEVERE is not very exciting, romantic or emotional, you know? It's not FAITH or TRUST or JOY. And it even LOOKS severe!
But I have several areas that need inner determination. Lots of things that need to happen and they will not just happen because I wish upon a star or pin them to my Pinterest board. I have done too much of letting life happen to me in the past. I can go with the flow. But as I approach my 61st birthday next month, I sense a new drive to be a little more proactive.
The first and most obvious item on the list is the publication of my book. I never thought I'd be an early morning writer, but lately when I wake up, my first thought is the book. So I slip out of bed and into my robe. I walk through the cold house and turn on the coffee on the way to my office. Layla follows me and plops herself on the extra chair across from my beautiful writing desk.
I make myself open the manuscript file even if I have no clue what else to do to the words there. I've been over and over them so many times, it is almost memorized. Some mornings I work for only 30 minutes, but other days I am in that little office for a few hours before beginning my day. And those mornings feel GLORIOUS!
