Seven on Saturday 1/7/23

This has been a week of getting back into the swing of things for me.

I’m trying to give myself a little grace as I make the transition into the new year on the blog, and in our home. I like to use the first couple of weeks of the new year to evaluate areas that I need to work on, and begin to implement some new habits and processes.

I’ve been working through the Word of the Year study by Maggie at She Pens Truth to focus in on a word for 2023. I narrowed my list to 5 words — balance, create, cultivate, intentional, and present, but I’m strongly leaning toward “balance” as my focus word for the year. I tend to be an all-or-nothing kind of girl putting all of my focus and energy into one area of life and business while neglecting others. So, I’m hoping to be a little more balanced in all areas of my life this year.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my Word of the Month post, Kim, I really appreciate it. We’ve been trying to give ourselves lots of grace too as we ease into a fresh New Year. I was in a goals class earlier this week and the leader said, “January is for shaping goals.” He then went on to explain how you have to not only take time to dream but also to craft an action plan so that you don’t lose steam come February. I love that you’re choosing words that will help keep you motivated all year. I’ll definitely be cheering you on! Big hugs and thank yous, CoCo
