My Word for 2014

I'm not usually a "word of the year" type of girl.  But, this year, words were calling me.

Nurture, enhance, brave, messy, joy, do, courage, explore.

As I was sharing my list with Lil O, she said, "Brave seems like your word, Mom."  I didn't realize I seem like a word to anyone.

Interestingly, however, I was thinking the same thing.  How will I nurture, enhance my life, be messy, seek joy, do all the things I want to do, have courage and explore the unknown?  I will have to be brave.

And thus, my word for 2014 is Brave.  It keeps capitalizing itself and just 20 days into the year, I've already taken several significant steps to honor it.

More to come tomorrow,
