Definition: having little or no concern for oneself, especially with regard to fame, position, money, etc.; unselfish.
I just don’t even know where to begin this post. As I’ve stated earlier, this is my 5th year choosing a word instead of doing resolutions/goals. Every year, when I have figured out my word, I have known a premise or a possibility of a path that I might be travelling on for the coming year. There were always surprises, of course, but for the most part, I’ve had a clue on what I would be “working on” for the year.
When I discovered my word for this year, I freaked out. I mean, this word could go down many paths. And honestly, this word feels hard – and I haven’t even started focusing on it yet. What does selflessness look like for me in 2014? Looking at that definition up there, well, I have to admit I’m not sure I’m ready to jump into this. What will I look like at the end of the year? What path will He have taken me on? Will I be able to walk it?
The even scarier part is that I have these nudging feelings inside when I think of some different possibilities for this word in my life. Things that make my heart pound out of my chest. But I want to be sure to listen to His voice and for His promptings – not assuming I already know. Without a doubt, it’s going to be an adventure.
So here’s to an interesting 2014! Are you joining the OneWord365 tribe? If so, let me know in the comments – I’d love to hear your OneWord for 2014!
