I’m a long-time lurker, first time follower of the “one word” new year’s resolution phenomenon. Not one to join a bandwagon, I was skeptical of the whole thing, and will probably remain so until the end of 2012, when I see how my one word choice plays out.
I stumbled on my “one word” by accident.
Rather, I believe it stumbled upon me.
The word rolled into my head like a tumbleweed in the middle of a barren desert (which is the current landscape of my mind). So hopeful, so out-of-the-ordinary, so delicious was the word that I embraced it, tucked it into the side of my desert duster jacket, and ran with it into the sunset . . . or maybe that was a sunrise.
But before I ran, I looked it up in the dictionary.
My one word is:
Definition of FRUITION
1 : pleasurable use or possession : enjoyment
2 a: the state of bearing fruit
Thankfully, the word has three meanings, which satisfies my multi-tasking, ADD, unfocused mind.
Without further ado, I’m tumbling in to 2012 with the goals of:
1) Enjoying life by being grateful (Romans 8:28-29), even in the midst of difficult times
2) Bearing fruit for my Savior Jesus Christ, whether through loving my husband and family well, the words I pen, or through whatever circumstance crosses my path (LOVE The Message Version of Galations 5:22-23!)
3) Realizing the advancement of my writing through publication and finishing a third novel (Hebrews 12:1-3)
Here am I.
