If you're like me, you probably sub-consciously wanted to fill in that blank with "Grease"!...
but that isn't it! haha. I would actually like to write about the word I have chosen to be my 'Word of the Year' for 2013!
I recently read a post by Jerralea at Jerralea's Journey, a blog I greatly enjoy reading, where she talked about the word she had chosen to live by this year. Shortly after, I went to another blog I love, Sugar Pie Farmhouse (who I credit the pretty, retro image below to), and read about her word for the year as well... together, these lovely ladies and their posts inspired me to think about what my own word to apply in my life should be for the year!
After much thought, I decided that my word will be...
The reason I am choosing Positivity for my word for the year is because I feel that staying positive throughout life is something I struggle with sometimes... and I think God sees that, and has placed it upon my heart to try to be a more positive person.
I have a positive attitude about many aspects of life and find joy in so much, but in some areas I find myself thinking the worst and looking at the glass half empty, sometimes worrying myself to death and thinking that I won't make it through a certain situation.
I want Positivity to play a more active role in my life... and in turn, I believe focusing on having that improved attitude will make for goodness and change in all parts of my life... my faith, family, health and well-being, and help me to trust Him more instead of worrying or being down about a certain thing I am trying to handle on my own. This is constantly a learning experience for me.
It is also my hope to live a life filled with more Positivity so that I may be of more encouragement to others by letting that shine through, to be more of a blessing to all whom I meet.
So... Positivity is the word! At least my word for the year!
