I have really loved having a word for the year the past couple of years. It’s so nice to have a word that really means something to me that I want to apply to certain areas of my life. Last year I chose the word Fearless. I wanted to be fearless in so many areas of my life. As a mother, as a wife, in my life, in my dreams, in my faith, and in blogging. I wanted to take risks and believe in myself more. It took awhile in some of those areas to put that fearlessness into action and there are still areas I’m working on being fearless. I think being fearless is something you have to continue to work at or at least I do because I do have so many fears. I like that it’s a goal I can always strive towards, work on, and accomplish. This year, I decided to go with the word Bloom.
It wasn’t one I pulled out of thin air or came up with on my own. I ordered a planner to use for blogging, actually I ordered two planners, but that’s another story for another day, anyway when my planner came in the mail I did a little happy dance. It’s such an adorable planner and when I opened it up and saw the word Bloom in big letters, the description right under it, and a place to write my goals for the year. It was just one of those yes moments, I saw that word and thought, YES, this is it. This is my word. I want to Bloom; “To grow or flourish with youth and vigor. To shine or glow.”
That’s what I want to do this year. I want to grow and I want to shine. What I love about this word is I can apply it to SO many areas of my life this year. I want to grow in Motherhood, in my marriage, in my friendships. I want to grow & shine in my photography, my dreams, and in blogging. I want to grow this year in beautiful ways and I want to shine brighter than I ever have.
What is your word for the year?
