welcome 2010


There is something so refreshing and exciting about starting a new year. It is a day to look back and a day to look forward. A day to set new goals and make resolutions.

I have seen on a couple different blogs ( here and here) that suggest that instead of making those New Year's resolutions, to choose instead, a word or a saying to focus on for the year. I love this!

I have done New Years resolutions in years past and know they really don't work for me. But I really like the idea of choosing a word. A word or phrase to focus on; to help you remember what changes or goals you are working towards.

There are so many good words to choose from; but the word that has resonated with me and that I keep coming back to is 'intentional'.

in⋅ten⋅tion⋅al  /ɪnˈtɛnʃənl/  Spelled Pronunciation [in-ten-shuh-nl]
–adjective: done with intention or on purpose; intended: an intentional insult.

I want to become more intentional this year, to be more purposeful with my day and what I spend my time on. I want to become more intentional on my prayer time, family time, my schedule, diet and exercize...

So as I pull out my new journal and weekly planner for 2010


I am going to be more intentional with how I spend my day.
And what does make it onto my schedule will be done with purpose.


Happy New Year! Welcome 2010!

That is seriously the best New Year's picture EVER!!

There's something about a new journal and planner that gives me goose bumps :) Here's a great page I used for inspiration in creating my own ONE WORD scrapbooking layout:

I'll be sharing that and a couple of other New Year's ideas at the faithbooking crop this weekend. (I should have them up on the blog shortly after!)
