Here is something you might not know about me-I love Psychology Today magazine.
There are many magazines I enjoy; like Oprah, Architectural Digest, Cleveland Magazine and more, but Psychology Today is one I love.
I have been reading it for years. It is a thin magazine, but that’s because it seems the ads are kept to a minimum.
I am completely enthralled with every subject and topic that I literally sit down and read it cover to cover every time.
Since signed up with a Twitter account I’ve been so excited to keep up with my favorite magazine by following Psych Today’s Tweets!!
About a week ago, the magazine tweeted about choosing a one-word-theme for the year.  
It peaked my interest…
The tweet led to a great article where the author describes a type of New Year’s Resolution that her sister usually does which is choose one word to use as the theme for her entire year.
That sounded fun!
So, I have chosen my one-word for the year; and I’ve already been using it, though it can be hard!!
     My one-word-theme for 2011 is Grace.
No matter what I do, how I act, how I react, or what I try to accomplish, I will attempt to do it with GRACE.
I have been trying to clean up my ‘potty’ mouth. I have been trying to keep my positive thoughts at the forefront of my mind. I am trying to be graceful  in the way that I thinking
There are things we all need to work on every day and many of them are the hardest habits to break.
I am excited about using Grace. I think that a one word theme will be easier than trying to talk my self down from a yuck moment. I just say ‘Grace’ and that speaks volumes to me!
Grace is a gift from God and it’s a gift that may be passed from one to another.
Use my word if you like, or choose your own!
Check it out!
(The writer is the author Gretchen Rubin and while I am not following the Happiness Project, someone out there might like to learn more about it and possibly join in. So here is her link to the Happiness Project.)
And as always, I would love to hear your comments on this post. Please share what one-word-theme you chose J
