Today as we start this new year, I just wanted to wish you all a very peaceful and beautiful 2015. In a world that seems chaotic and hectic, I hope you can take time to be still.
In our house, instead of choosing a New Year's resolution, we always choose a word for the year. This word we then apply to every area of our lives. When we first moved to this area 5 years ago, because we were starting over, my word was "plant". I'm also a gardener so I was planting my family, my garden, my home, etc. For my daughter, who has a hard time completing tasks, her word one year was "finish". I've decided my word this year is going to be "focus". I've been having a very hard time focusing lately and want to work on this. Other words I've had over the years have been "create", "grow", "elevate" and "turn". I strongly recommend this for you and your family. Make sure you write it down and revisit it now and then.
I've had a very exciting year and have really stepped out of my comfort zone. I want to encourage you to do the same in your life and take that leap of faith.
