{ Word of the Year }

Have you chosen a Word of the Year?
Apparently, a Word of the Year is the new New Years resolution.
(I know I should have posted this in January, but it's never too late!)

Basically, you choose one word that has the potential to inspire you and create intention in your life, all year long.
I heard about The Word of the Year link pary that will be going on at The Lettered Cottage. It got me thinking...

What word would I pick to inspire me this year....
It's a toss up between two words, Yes and Blessed.
I'm having a hard time choosing which one, I think I need both this year.

I chose the word "yes" because frankly I tend to say "no" a lot more then yes. Not because I'm too busy, or have better things to do. But no, because I'm more backward and shy. I don't like new situations. I get uncomfortable. I don't like wandering too far from my well traveled path. But, this year I'm going to try and be brave and say "yes" more often. What do I have to loose? I want to open myself up to fun, to new adventures. New places, new things, new food and new people. Hopefully when I look back on the year I will be happy I said yes!

The other word "blessed" is more personal. Times are so busy. The days fly by. Sometimes I look back and think where did the (day, week, month) go. I want to be more aware of the blessings I have. Sometimes I get caught up in the "wants" and forget to be thankful for what I do have. A loving Husband, Son, Daughter in Law, home, kittes, food and more. I saw a quote recently that made me pause.... What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday~ hmmmmmmmmm I want to be more thankful.

I may have to write "yes" on my hand and "blessed" on the other, to remember my new words...... YES world here I come, I'm thankful for each day I get to try!
