Kristi wrote about her one word for the year.  Ever since I read it, I've been thinking about what my word might be.  There are so many that could work, but I keep coming back to the first word I thought of when I originally read her post, NOW.  As in, what can I do NOW to meet a goal?

What can I do NOW to drink more water in a day?

What can I do NOW to keep up with the laundry?

What can I do NOW to have more time for self-indulgent reading?

What can I do NOW to grow in faith?

And there are many more questions just like this.  The word NOW, for me then, is a way to keep me aware that the choices I make at this very moment have consequences down the road, either for good or ill.  To that end, what I should be doing NOW is getting off the computer so that I can begin to work through my to-do list for the day.

This is great, Glenda. I may have to steal it. :)

Great choice Glenda!

Something I should take on, doing something now, instead of putting it off. I am a terrible procrastinator. That may have to be my second little word for the year, and I would sure get more done.

Thanks Bonnie - and your welcome to steal it NOW! ;-)

Yes Kristi - I know what you mean, I'm good at getting lost in misery and woe, and virtual computer worlds, so the NOW helps me remember my vocation of wife, mother, and teacher.

I read this post a while back, and "now" has been in my head as I walk by a little dirty sock on the floor. . . and I stop and pick it up "now" instead of passing it by so many times and feeling like I'm never getting anywhere with cleaning the house, etc. It has made a difference for me.

Thank you.

You're welcome Jody.

And Thank You! Your comment came to my inbox after a series of days where I had been in a funk. After your comment, I reread my post and realized what I could do "now" to work my way out of the funk. And that sure helps me. Thank you for reminding me!
