My word to live by for 2013 (and beyond!) is Grace. I chose this word because I admire people who:
- Give others the benefit of the doubt
- Listen without interrupting
- Really listen to others…..and then consider their point of view
- Forgive others – even when they’ve been hurt
- Have empathy – really envision what the other is experiencing
I want to make these acts a part of my l life. As much as I admire those who have it/ use it – I can’t say that I see it often enough. I didn’t do this slice in January, so from this point on I will start to look for evidence of grace in the world around me. I’ll bet, now that I live such a writerly life, I will see it everywhere!
