I shared this over at SNAP and wanted to make sure you all are able to see why this year I am choosing to Be Gentle.
Do you know about the One Little Word New Year’s challenges? This is a way to make New Year’s Resolutions much easier on yourself. Instead of making a never ending, and sometimes never accomplished, list of things to do, you just focus on One Little Word. Wanna know why I choose this word?
Here’s the definition:
Is it just me, or would you like to be described as: mild in temperament or behavior; kind or tender.
I would love it if people said that about me…most importantly, if my children and husband could say that about me.
This past November I attended a women’s conference called Time Out For Women. It is full of uplifting nourishment for the soul, and a perfect way to escape, especially for this mom of 3 little girls.
I saw this video clip there and it really changed my perspective on how gentle I am not only with my family, but with myself.
I have always thought of myself as gentle, but as I reflected on my actions and words with my children husband, I realized that I’m not that gentle at all. Then I thought of how hard I am on myself. And how I sometimes get frustrated with other people and have thoughts that are anything but gentle thoughts towards them. I think this is the year to become more gentle.
I mean, look at these people. I should be super gentle and loving with them!
So I’ve found one of my favorite quotes on being gentle and have made it a printable for me to hang up anywhere I can! Seriously, in my office, car, fridge, and bathroom. You can download the Free Printable below!
I even bought a necklace from Charmed Collections that says, “be gentle.” LOVE it!
It’s a perfect reminder to me EVERYDAY to focus on what’s most important and helps me keep my goal first and foremost in my mind.
So leave a comment and tell me what your One Word is or how you think you can be more gentle in your life.
