I hate resolutions. I do them every year and then I forget about them. Come December, I brush them off & think “Crap…..” So this year I asked myself “Why bother?” About the same time, I saw a post from my friend Nicole over at Sisters from Another Mister about picking your one word for 2013. One word? That I can handle!
My word for 2013 is Happiness.
Happiness – a state of well-being and contentment
It may seem like a silly word to choose because we all want to be happy. We all strive for happiness. I agree but it seems like I’ve lost my way a bit with the pursuit of happiness lately. I am starting to wonder if I know what happiness looks like or how to get there. Where does your happiness end and someone else’s begin or does it? When does pursuing your own happiness become selfish? And even…what does happiness even feel like? And on and on.
In 2013, I doubt I will find all the answers but I do want to get further down the path of figuring it all out.
And really…how could Happiness not be my word when I got this as my fortune cookie fortune on December 30th?
