Each year I choose a one word New Years resolution (see previous years here and here). Post baby hormones and thyroid issues have done a number on me this time around and depression hit me hard. I threw myself into being a mother, school work, fitness and health, and my church calling but I couldn't shake the underlying feeling of emptiness and loss. I was definitely dedicated but there was a hollowness to it all.
So this year I chose a word that resonates with my soul. Something I have had in fleeting moments but haven't been able to grasp long term for awhile: [En]Joy.
And I plan on living life with that word in the back of my mind all year long.
