New Years Word: Patience


I picked up a little New Years inspiration from Camille Styles over the weekend.  Rather than setting a resolution for the year (which I had already and do plan to keep), I came up with a word.  One word which I hope to lean on as the year progresses.  My word for 2012 is "patience" and I selected it because it's something I've always been short on and more so lately, I've needed in abundance.

There are so many things I feel like I want right now (to feel settled in our new house for starters) and not having them happen in my personal time frame brings me down.  I know that life doesn't go according to my schedule but that doesn't stop me from wanting and therefore waiting.  

So in the year ahead, I am asking for patience.  Leaning on the hope that with patience, the things I want will happen but more importantly, I will enjoy the process of getting there.

What's your word?

  1. Ooh. Patience is a good one. I think mine would be Daring. I'd like to take more risks and do more DOING than over analyzing.

  3. Patience is a great one!! I'll have to use that until I think of another of my own.
    I hope you are starting to feel settled in TX.

  4. patience is a good one. One of mine for the new year would have to be 'appreciate' as i try to focus more on the positives. Ditto to Miss Lindsay's well wishes. Hope you're more settled...youre missing out on some FREEZING weather in NYC..that's for sure!

  5. Happy New Year! I hope you all are settling into your new home. Patience is something I need to work on as well and admit to being one of those people who like instant gratification.

  6. that is a good idea - it's nicely wrapped up into a state of mind instead of focusing on tasks. I may adopt this as well, my word - follow through;)

  8. This is a wonderful idea and so much more realistic than setting a laundry list of action items. Have a wonderful weekend!
