Humility: Jenni Catron

| written by Alece Ronzino | 9 comments

Wow, this word has been a journey! I chose humility as my One Word for 2011.  I figured I wouldn’t finish the year in complete control of this word… if I believed that I had… well that would be a problem.

I chose humility because I wanted humility to be something that is at the front of my mind all the time.

I wanted to be aware of moments where I was anything but humble so that I could be more aware of how frequently pride consumes me.  (That was painful!)

I wanted to observe humility in action through others.  (This was inspiring!)

But what I found was conflicting.  The emotions were extreme.  There were things that were embarrassingly humbling and then others where I was humbled by feeling too honored.

Humility is a funny thing.  I’m glad for the journey of this year and yet I don’t feel any closer to being the humble person I I hope to be.

The journey continues…

Spencer McDonald: I have been thinking diligently about my word for 2012. It has finally come to me. FOCUS. FOCUS. FOCUS. I selected this word because I tend to jump from one thing to the next. By doing this I never seem to gain any traction. It is frustrating. So, if I intentionally focus I believe I can progress better with my life. This required me to throw somethings away that I had on the back burner and embrace those that were most calling to me. I have selected four key focus areas for the New Year. You can read them over at my blog if you like. Thanks for a wonderful way of setting and acting on our intentions better. Reply
