Why this word?
I want to be unshakable in all the parts of my life for 2017. I think it’s really easy to carry around your thoughts, beliefs, goals, wants, etc. in a little bag over your shoulder. It’s even easier to pop that bag down when you don’t “need” it. Worst of all, it’s the easiest to leave that bag behind. The hard move, is to pull out each and every one of those items from your bag and display them proudly–announcing that they are yours. It’s difficult to do this with conviction and be unshakable–never letting anyone take any piece away from you.
My goals for this year:
1) To be a role model for my children and students.
2) To stand up for what I believe in, no matter what.
3) To make time for the things that matter to me.
So, 2017, I will be unshakable.
For my children. I am determined to do what is best for you. I will not let anyone hurt you or tell you that you “can’t”. I will also be unshakable in my expectations for you. You may be little, but you are fierce, and you will be fiercely kind, loving, and independent. I believe, unshakably, that you are unstoppable. As Riley turns four and Luke turns one, I will make sure to be unshakable in who I am, so that I can show you what a strong role model looks like.
For my husband. This year is a big one for us. We have a lot to look forward to and some rough spots as well, so I promise to be unshakable in my faith of you. I will be unwavering in my ability to bring everything I can to the table. As long as we know that we have each other, we can get through all of it, good and bad.
For my friends. This past year has been an eye-opener. I have learned a lot about so many of you, and even though we don’t always have the time to get together, I am unshakable in my belief that you are in my life for a reason. I will always be here for each one of you and you can count on me to be your steadfast support in everything that you are doing.
For my students. I will be unshakable in my commitment to you. While I am here to teach you, I am also here to listen and help when you may be in need. I am unshakable in my confidence that being challenged is the best way to learn. I will fight for you whenever necessary and cry with you if you need it.
For my life. I will be unshakably focused in reaching my goals. I will be unshakable in my resolution to make it through 2017 with a positive attitude. I will continue to stand for what’s right and what I believe, and no one will make that wobble.
These are the reasons that unshakable is my one little word of 2017. What’s yours?
