Every year i choose a word to follow me throughout the year. And usually by March I am forgetting about the word...and by the end of the year I don't remember what the word was. 2013 has been no exception...EXCEPT I did spend alot of time with the word, off and on this year and I do still remember it. BUT i did have to go look it up to be sure I was correct.
The word for 2013 was SIMPLIFY. And I did work alot on SIMPLIFYING. However I still have such a long way to go. Not everything in 2013 was easy to simplify and because of my struggles with this all through my life, I thought last week maybe I would continue with that word through 2014.
BUT nope...last night a word popped into my head. I mulled it over and then fell asleep. I might tell you, that the word popped into my head during a time when i discovered there was a mouse in the house and I am very afraid of silly little mice. Enough so that I feel physically sick knowing one is nearby.
This morning, as I was driving into town, I gave that word some more thought. I though about how it made me feel when i said it out loud or thought it. The word? CALM I then thought about how the word CHAOS made me feel when I said it out loud. Try it...try both words. Yup CALM is my word for 2014.
