For the past 9 years I have chosen a One Word. One word or theme to focus on one year. The first year, 2011, I didn't take it serious and don't even remember what my word was. In 2012, I decided I need to be intentional, since I failed the year before. So my word was intentional. In 2013 I wanted to have a heart after God. 2014, I wanted to focus on prayer. 2015 I wanted to drink more water and focus on the Living Water. In 2016, I decided I needed to make myself a priority. In 2017, I wanted to focus on my marriage and dating my husband. 2018 was all about living with joy. And in 2019, I wanted to focus on progress.

So how did my year go as I focused on progress?

Over the year I focused on making progress with little by little steps. I also learned that making progress on my goals was better than giving up when I didn't perfect them. This is something I learned with the help of Powersheets.

One goal I set was about my health. I wanted to drink 80 ounces of water a day. I didn't always hit 80 ounces, but if I hit 60 ounces, that was progress! I wanted to walk 9,000 steps a day. I didn't get 9,000 every single day, but if I got 9,000 more days than not, that was progress! Another goal I set was to go on a weekly date with my husband. We didn't get to go out weekly, but if we went out at least once a month, that was progress!

In the past, I would have gotten bummed about not hitting my complete goal every time. But learning that progress is still growth helped me to be pleased with what I was doing. I am grateful for the year to focus on progress and the lessons I learned.

Come back tomorrow and I will share my One Word for 2020!
