what will be my one word for year 2019




Happy New year everyone. time is flying by so fast. 2018 got over so quickly, My 2018 was year to be grateful for, lot of new & challenging things happening in my life, though with those challenges also came  feeling confident in myself was biggest reward Though lot of times during year felt like giving up, but with not giving up, I see growth in myself. I grew more confident in my ability than inability. Now 2019 is here, year brings in lot of anticipation. I am scared & praying hard for everything to fall in place for our son. Its year full of anticipation & I wish & pray all his hard-work pays off & he is well onto path of his chosen field.

So my one word mantra for 2019 is “Be”.

 That leaves the door open for me to ‘be’mindful of others or to ‘be’more empathetic to others and also ‘be’ more loving to myself so just to ‘be’in the moment ...just to exist and to add whatever action after that word I want to accomplish for the year .

 I believe sometimes people put so much emphasis on what New Year’s resolutions they want to accomplish. Then when they don’t accomplish something  they are a devastating because they feel like they have failed when in fact they had to work up to that goal incrementally. So to  become a better person , I will start being more mindful of my current situation and others. After I have become comfortable and With my actions, my goals  will become that much more attainable

Well said. 

So many people set unrealistic goals.

Or way too many.

Being better at something is an excellent resolution. 

Asha my daughter is heading into her last year at high school.

She suffers terrible anxiety. 

My goal will be to understand her better, to enable her final school year to be memorable.

I have Enjoy as my word again this year. I think I let the leg operation and dissection dominate my life last year and am not going to let it take another year of my life.  2019 is mine to enjoy. Asha, with your support and that of your husband and extended family your son will be fine

Ok...three words. I am open-grateful-look forward-feeling inner peace (even if at moments). 🙏

My one word is life.


Only our life.

Only our story.

Only our experience.


But lately we see the value of sharing.

End hiding.

And each has value. 

Forget worldly concerns.

Seek. Aspire. But value life.


God bless you all.

Today I decided my one word will be routine.

Without it, everything else just falls apart.

I have worked hard all week at getting out of bed on time, so the rest of the day can go to plan.

Janelle I know what you mean. For the past month my sleeping routine has gone out the door! First I am having serious problems with getting to sleep...I'm talking get to sleep by 4am because I am now thoroughly exhausted, set my alarms (4) for 10am because I need to GET UP! I have meds, a daily schedule I plan, and I want to be tired or able to sleep earlier the next night. So I sleep through all 4 of my alarms, wake up around noon or 12:30, take my meds at a not good time, feel frustrated with myself, have daytime sleepiness for the rest of the day (try not to take a nap...I'm not always successful), get into bed around 10 but do things to keep my head quiet, try multiple times to turn off the light and get comfortable and fall asleep, and eventually turn on the light and do something to get me exhausted until I can fall asleep. It's a whole cycle. 😐

Tracy, it is a very viscous cycle. Trying to not sleep during the day usually means I fall asleep for a few hours at 5pm. Then we start the craziness all over again...

Janelle I hate that you deal with this too but I'm ok that I have company. Well at least it makes me feel less like a do do bird lol. The past 5 days have been totally weird...I have been exhausted 24/7. Falling asleep around 8 with my light on, waking up at like 1am and take my meds, do something mindless because I am now awake a little, fall back to sleep with the light on, wake up at 6am and have to get up-get coffee-mix an egg bowl with cheese, salt, pepper-eat-and then fall asleep in the recliner till about 10. 😬 I can't say I won't nap in between that time and dinner! I keep thinking I must be getting sick but thankfully not so far. Perplexing. 🤔
