Rearview Mirror: 2012 in Review

| written by Alece Ronzino | 8 comments

As the year is coming to an end, it’s a good time to look in the rearview mirror.

Pause and process through your year and how your One Word impacted it. The point of One Word 365 is intentionality—before moving on to a new word for a new year, let’s be intentional to examine the road we’ve been on.

So go ahead and write a post about your One Word journey this year:

How has your word taken shape and how has it shaped you?

Does it mean something different to you now than you thought it would?

How has it steered your decisions, plans, and actions?

What challenges and victories have you experienced?

Then come back and link up your post so we can all engage in the process together. Let’s rally around each other in this amazing community as we seek to end this year strong.

Donna Coffield: I just read about this idea a few minutes ago. Sounds like such a nice idea (skipping the resolutions) .... living your word daily. I automatically picked a word ... then I decided .... I will watch for the next 10 days (till the end of the year), and I will use the word that I see and recognise the most. Reply

    Alece: love your idea of how to pick your word over the next 10 days, donna! Reply

Genevieve Thul: So thankful for this meme. It has really helped me to be intentional as well as reflective about each passing year (something I'm craving in my mid-30s). I was amazed to look back and see just how God has spoken my word into my life this past year. I don't have a word picked yet for next year...maybe a little prayer and it will come to me! Reply

    alece: love hearing how your word has helped you in past years... look forward to hearing about your journey for 2013. Reply

LisaJoy: I haven't participated in this before, but I'd like to. I've been pondering over the last few days and even had a short list written: "Hope, presence, listen, holy". And then the other day as I was thinking it over a new word came completely out of nowhere. Cover. Cover as in I'm covered by grace, forgiveness, God's promises, His protection. But I can also cover, if I so choose. I can cover others with grace, forgiveness, comfort, truth. So I think that's going to be it. Cover. I'm excited for the journey. Reply
