Since I am a blog author it is pretty obvious that words are important to me.
You wonderful people out there that are reading the words I write must think words are important too!
From time to time I do a little internal evaluation. You know the kind where you check in on yourself, and evaluate how things are going on in your own personal life.
When I do my evaluations I get little internal messages in the form of words. It might be a saying I have heard before many times, but for some reason at that moment in time it becomes my own personal message.
I started putting this at the end of some of my thought processes, and it would quickly put things into perspective.
For instance…….. I am going to get those darling new
shoes, and then what?
Well, if I am being perfectly honest, nothing life changing.
They will eventually just become another pair of shoes that I get rid of because they are no longer in style or don’t feel good on my feet.
See what I mean? It kind puts things in perspective of importance, doesn’t it.
It also helped me evaluate how much time, and personal energy I put into things.
When it was all said, and done it was the people in my life that really fell into the important column.
This Years Words
This year is a little different for me. I am not quite sure why this thought process comes to my mind so often, but these have become my words for this year….
I know this is a biggy, and not always so easily practiced in our lives.
I know we like to think that we are always true to ourselves, but we have so many influences in the media that tell us to be one way, or another. With fashion and design trends we can get lost.
If we are not careful our true self never will emerge.
Along with this saying I have read a few other sayings that go hand in hand with this one that I would like to share with you today………
For me I must always remember what is at my very core….
So my dear friends I am going to continue to try, and be true to who I am, and more importantly, who God made me to be……
What words have you been hearing lately?……
Always listen to your own personal words they are there for a reason.
