Can you believe we are already in the middle of February AND I have yet to share with you about my word for this year.
Last year my word was FEARLESS.
And wow. I never realized how much I allowed fear to control my life. Since forever. I shared a bit about it during Nadine Brandes #Called2Speak blog tour.
Since living fearless will be a lifelong journey, I was pretty sure that my word for 2016 would just be a carry over. I wasn’t too worried that I didn’t have a new word for this year.
And then I stumbled upon the word: BLOOM. And I knew it. (Bloom where you’re planted has echoed in my head over the years, so it was inevitable.)
But you know, like Gideon needing reassurance with the fleece and all, I was like…I need a sign! Although, I was quite happy with claiming that word right then and there.
And then. In the middle of winter. I see this.
A lonely bud on my gardenia plant. What?!
I’m living my second childhood. Learning to live fearlessly. And bloom into who I was created to be.
And kind of important when you start considering branding and figuring out WHO I am or WHAT my writing is.
So that is my word for 2016.
Do you have a word for 2016? Please share! Let us encourage one another on this crazy journey called life.
