I will be 30 at the end of this year. While that doesn’t bother me so much, knowing that these days are just going by faster and faster does.
I am a thinker, and i often find myself in my head, rather than right where I should be, which is in the moment. But I am also a pretty happy person, and I *love* to laugh. Like, the uncontrollable, my stomach hurts and I am crying kind of laugh.
My word for this year is a simple one, which needs no explanation.
I want to smile more; I want to be out of my head, let more things go and just smile. When Max Payne is holding his very last straw and it isn’t even 9:30am yet, I just want to smile. When Lexie is having her fourth over-emotional, four-year old melt down of the day, I just want to smile.
Because when you are smiling, you can’t say something too harsh. It is hard to hurt a little person’s heart when you are smiling. And since I am surrounded by tiny humans all day during this season of life, it is pretty important that I build up those hearts, not tear them down.
So, Smile. =)
What is your word of the year?
