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.
