My friend Kristen did this and I've seen the concept of "One Little Word" on Ali Edwards' blog which is an amazing blog about organization . She is a scrapbooker/artist/amazing crafty person. The basic idea is to choose one word that sums up what you want for yourself in the coming year. I have been very aggressive in my goal setting this year and there are many changes that I want to see happen in my life. I have been pondering quite a while trying to figure out what one word could sum it up. Tonight as Brian and I were talking and he showed me a scipture, the word jumped out to my like a flashing marquee. The word I've chosen for 2009 is:
That word had a footnote at the bottom of the page and it had the word "Self-Mastery" as another definition for the word conquer. This is what I want for 2009 for myself.
I want to conquer everything that I want to achieve for this year and it will take discipline and self mastery. When I think of the words self mastery I always think about the Spirit taking control of the body, taking control of the thought process, taking me to a higher level of spirituality. What an amazing thing to obtain. So if you see the word conquer surrounding me, don't think that I am aggressively trying to take somebody's property. I am working on mastering me and conquering my dreams.
