stretch, and it applied so well to my year. I had to really stretch my level of comfort while living out of state for 6 months. I continued to stretch it when we returned and moved into my parents' home while we waited for Dave's promotional assignment. My creative abilities were pushed to new limits and I could feel myself growing out of my previous confines. The word continues to apply to my life as I try to expand my world view all the time and I will carry this word through the coming years.
2013 brings different thoughts though. While I will continue to stretch, I want more. However, I wasn't sure what my focus would be. I tossed a few words around in my head. I shared them with Dave, and he made suggestions. I sat with the idea and then I realized what my word had to be. This year my word of focus is b l o o m. It seems like such a fitting word for me right now. I want to make sure that wherever I am, my life is full. The idea of bloom where you are planted seems to apply. There is so much potential in this life that I want to make sure no minutes are lost. So, this year as we ready our family for another stay in Washington D.C. (much shorter this time), I am focusing on happiness, success and blooming right where I am. And to make sure I don't forget I found a bracelet to use as a reminder.
Did you focus your intentions for the year? Do you pick a word? If so what is yours?
