My 2015 Word of the Year- Intentional

Sigh… Did you hear that high sigh of relief? That was me! We made it through 2014! YAY! I am so excited to start 2015. 2014 was one I will never forget. It was amazing and it was eventful. I am ready to let it go and start over!Gulfport Mississippi with kids

Last year my word was EMBRACE. And boy did I embrace!

I embraced a new home, new culture, new places, a new church, new friends, family time, my promotion, my illness, moving home, living with family, leaning on friends and family, and my miracle! WHEW! 1522603_10151869022322611_1071128881_o

We enjoyed snow and experienced Mardi Gras. It was awesome!

My sister in law reminded me several times of my word for the year. It became a joke as I learned to “embrace” every new challenge or opportunity.Planting My Edible Container Garden Scotts Gro-Ables

We traveled and explored Mississippi and Louisiana. We saw so many beautiful places and things. We had a lot of remarkable family time. storyland new orleans

I started thinking about this year and what I want to achieve this year. One word kept coming to mind.



done on purpose; deliberate.

Intentional living is any lifestyle based on an individual or group’s conscious attempts to live according to their values and beliefs. These can include lifestyles based on religious or ethical values, as well as coaching, personal transformation, and leadership training. Intentional living requires one to be aware of their fundamental beliefs and to be willing to make an effort to have their behavior reflect these beliefs in a form of integrity in relation to his or her conscience and environment. In some cases, such changes are drastic enough that like-minded individuals group together in intentional communities.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes I will be intentional about what I watch, read and do. I will be intentional with my time and my words. I will start a daily bible study so that I can be intentional about my time in the word and with God. I want to be intentional about nurturing my relationship. Intentional about enjoying each precious moment my children. Intentional about getting my body into shape.

Have you discovered you word yet? I recommend making a WORD, not a resolution! Resolutions are so specific and often they lead to disappointment. With a word, we can focus on so many factors of our life and you can keep trying again.

What is your WORD for the year?
