That’s my OneWord. And for me it’s a reminder of the specific journey God has planned for me to embark on. I said ‘YES’ to him years ago, but recently I have found myself having to recommit. Having to make a cognitive choice to speak the word ‘YES’ yet again to him. Why?
I have been in vocational ministry and leadership for the past 15 years. Though I am 100% confident I am still in his will, I have recently transitioned to working as a Barista and rebranding myself as a life coach and social media manager. Folks, that’s a big change! And if I’m going to be gut-level authentic with you, December and January were dark months containing very little joy and hope. Thankfully, I realized that I had lost sight of my calling and taken my attention off of my OneWord.
“Self-awareness is a gift of wisdom.”
