My 2013 ONE WORD: TENDER
|This picture is patterned after a piece of art from the 12th century entitled The Virgin of Tenderness.|
In January I thought about joining in on the ONE WORD movement but I kind of missed the boat. Ok, it totally set sail without me. However, I'm ready to board now.
My 2013 ONE WORD is....tender.
I would hope that the people who know me would describe me with many words like: playful, energetic, competitive, athletic, out-going, spontaneous, intense, and loving. However, being the human being I am, I am sure I could also be described as being rash, brash, loud, impatient, short-tempered, competitive, intense and covetous.
I am many thing, but one thing I am not - yet - is tender.
So, what is tenderness? I would describe TENDERNESS as displaying an overall attitude of kindness, concern, gentleness, and peace-making in all situations for the betterment of the other, even at the expense of one's self.
I really want to grow in this and so I plan on blogging about it from time to time as a way of holding myself accountable.
