2014 To Dos and My One Word

I hate the word resolution. My resolution lists never gets done. And that is the reason why I'd rather keep life simple and write down things that would be nice to accomplish every start of the year. I also believe in the One Word method. Choose a word and it'll be the "theme" of my entire. it actually is workable than resolutions.

As my church goes through a yearly Prayer and Fasting, I incorporate my one word and the list of things I'd like to accomplish with my faith goals. 

At the end of the year, I don't feel bad if I only accomplished a few on my list. God is full of surprises. It shows how I am not in control but He is. And His plans for me are way much better than what I have in mind.

My own version: 

A bad habit I am going to break
My sugar and junk food addiction

A new skill I'd like to learn
Bible verse memorization

A person I hope to be more like
The Proverbs 31 woman - the original Martha Stewart

A good deed I am going to do
Greet family and close friends during their birthdays 

A place I'd like to visit
If there is one place I'd like to go back to, it'd be Cebu City.
A new place I would like to see is Siem Reap. Yes, it'd be more difficult with a baby and toddler but if we don't try to go this year, when will we have the chance, right? Gotta get something done.

A book I'd like to read
As well as finish these books from 2013:

A letter I am going to write
Love letter to the husband

A new food I'd like to try
More vegetarian dishes

I'm going to do better at
Finding the time to exercise

And my one word for 2014 is:

It's a crazier life with two kids. There are times when I would just because I am too overwhelmed. It is manageable though. God's grace and the Holy Spirit. I feel I am such a scatter brain that I need to refocus. This, I think, is the key to accomplishing my goals for this year. It is also important that I do not lose sight of the things that matter and those that need to be my priority.

In all these goals and one word, I need God as I can't do it on my own.

What are your goals and one word for this year?
