I sent one of my girlfriends an e-mail one day and kept using the word “ugh”. I proceeded to tell her that “ugh” was my new word because I was feeling like everything that was going on in my world at the time felt like it ended in “ugh”.
My girlfriend sent me an e-mail back and proceeded to tell me that she didn’t feel “ugh” was a good word to choose and that I should check out this website.
So I did….
This website, My One Word, is focused on people picking one word to focus on for the year.
What would my one word be?
I like “ugh”! It sounds so….”ugh”!
When you say “ugh”, it is like pushing out that last breath deep in your gut.
I am always up for a challenge when my friends give me advice for change. I figure they see something that I don’t see.
For the next several weeks, I proceeded to think about what my word would be….
I was swimming one day doing my boring laps. My mind wondered and I forgot what lap I was on! The word that came to my head was salvation. Salvation would that be my word? I pondered that word for a few days.
Yes, salvation is a good word but I think for this year I need something stronger and simple.
I decided to choose the word faith.
With faith, anything is possible!
With faith, I will get through this 365 Day Project.
With faith, I will have something to be grateful for every single day.
With faith, I can be and do anything.
Faith vs Ugh
Ugh vs Faith
I like the word ugh still.
Now when I say ugh I proceed to tell myself…ugh with faith!
Thank you to My One Word blog and my wise girlfriend for encouraging me to pick a word to focus on. Today as part of my 365 Day Project, I am grateful for you!
