One Word 2019- Discovery

My One Word for 2019

It has been quite a while since I last had a word focus for the year. The last time I focused on a word was in 2016 where I placed my emphasis on Wisdom 2019 marks the beginning of a journey of discovery for me. I am ready to know more about myself and stretch myself even further to achieve more with his Grace.

Now that I am 40 my perceptiveness have been heightened. I’m extremely aware what is and isn’t beneficial for my growth and well- being. I will be focusing more on my passions and developing them fully. No more half-hearted attempts or procrastination to prevent me from achieving what I set out to do. With the kids are older with two in Secondary and One in elementary they are not as needy as before. I have more time to draft and execute my plans on a well balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Broken free from the toxic shackles which had once bonded me, I am free to explore areas which were once foreign for me. I no longer seek validation from those who do not have my best interest at heart. I do not need to put up with monsters who were actively trying to box me with their arrogance and demeaning attitude. They do not define me nor their behavior have anything to do with me anymore. I have released the dead weight from their unwarranted false accusations and unrealistic standards and am no long pinned under it.

I live by the WORD of GOD and am following what GOD has planned for me. I seek out the RHEMA paired with LOGOS to have a complete understanding on how and what he wants me to do here on earth- Thrive.

Bring on the Journey of Discovery.

Year – End Reflection 2018

Year End Reflection 2018

Entering the tail end of Advent and count down to Christmas it is time again to reflect on what had happened this year- 2018. This year I have cut down a lot on blogging as I focused more on the family. I’ve actively hit the books and completed the year long course that I had signed up for. It’s time again for me to decide on what else I will want to add to my resume and what skills I would like to acquire or fine-tune come 2019.

Next year I will be pursuing hobbies which I have neglected while I was busy adjusting to my new role as a single parent. Photography and Japanese are the areas that I am going to add back into my weekly routine. Macro photography, Japanese Cuisine and speaking and writing the language. I’m looking forward to the new challenges in picking up new photography skills and being more fluent in Japanese. 🙂

Here on Dominique’s Desk I will be starting of a new series which will document the challenges/ experience of moving from Primary to Secondary. Having experience this twice with Monkey Boy and Doggie Boy I have a better idea how to prepare both the child and parent adequately for this transition. I will be sharing my thoughts and some pointers which parents can look out for if their kids too are in the transition year.

Do drop me a comment if you have any issues you would like me to address in this upcoming series.
