My Word…


I had two different words on my mind when this word popped in my head:

CHOOSE “to select from a number of possibilities”

CHOOSE the Right

CHOOSE a positive attitude

CHOOSE to be productive

CHOOSE NOT to be offended

I was inspired a couple weeks ago, when we had a lesson at church during Relief Society that came from President Thomas S. Monson’s talk “The Three R’s of Choice” from the October 2010 General Conference (Priesthood Session). He talks about various aspects of choice and put them into three categories: the right of choice, the responsibility of choice, and the results of choice, hence the three R’s of choice. I really enjoyed his perspective. He ended his talk by saying “…may we be filled with gratitude for the right of choice, accept the responsibility of choice, and ever be conscious of the results of choice.”

I hope I can be more aware of the choices in front of me and do a better job this year with my attitude and being a good example to my family.

I’m also choosing to attempt Project 365 again this year {a picture each day for the year}. Hopefully I’ll get farther than I did 2 years ago. LOL! If you want to follow along, you can check out my Project365 blog HERE.

Did you choose a word to center your goals around this year?

Great word, Andrea! My dear grandpa (who has since passed away) would wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and say to himself, "I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY TODAY". He always said you have the CHOICE to be happy, and the CHOICE to have a good matter what. Good word to live by.

Like the word. I'm w/ Wendy about "choosing to be happy everyday." Each day I have to wake up and go to work, I have to remind myself to "like" my job and be grateful that I have it :).
