minimize

minimize Last year, my word for the year was give, and I made it a priority to seek opportunities to give my time, energy, and love to others.  And I realized that the more I shifted my focus to others, the less I focused on myself.  For this reason, as I continue to challenge myself to give continually in 2016, I also want to minimize.

I have embraced the philosophy of minimalism in many areas of my life already – my purchases, my wardrobe, my style.  Throughout this process, I discovered how much consumerism and self-centeredness had infiltrated my life, and I have been very humbled.

This year, I will continue to pursue minimalism in my possessions, but more importantly, I will seek to minimize myself so that I may become more like Jesus, and so that God may use me as a vessel to serve others and improve the world around me.

What is your word for 2016?
