Last year, I traded in my old, beat up resolutions for a new shiny One which I would own for twelve whole months.
Because it was such a big investment, (much like purchasing a vehicle) I thought it might be wise to ‘test-drive’ a few first.
I picked several things I felt I needed/wanted to focus on.
I paired up words which made me think of (or meant) those things.
I tried each of them for out for a week before I landed on my overall approach for 2012.
That after I tried it for a while, I realized that I related it more to church, my religion, saying prayers and reading the bible. Since those things are already present in my life, Faith to me did not work in the way that I thought it would for motivational purposes.
So, I tossed it out.
Back to the dictionary!
