My friend, Kim, got me started a few years ago choosing a yearly word that would mean something to me and cause me to focus on its importance. I love how Kim inspires me when I visit her blog! She shared a link to Ali Edwards' blog and her "One Little Word":
"A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything.
It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow."
You can read Ali Edwards' original post from 2007 about "One Little Word" (go here to read that post) and the power of single words.
Plus, check out Woolie Mammoth's blog for her special word for the year...it's a great post!
While thinking of what word to focus on this year, I thought about how I've always been a glass-half-empty kinda gal, but this past year has seemed a little more like the-glass-is-empty. I retired, sold a house, moved, blah, blah, blah, and I think whatever was in my glass has almost disappeared. So to rid myself of a few negatives in my life, I'm going with this word for 2014:
I'll try to be more positive this year!
What word would you choose?
