When Layla announced she was having a Word of the Year party, I knew I wanted to take part. Basically, you choose one word for the year that will encourage and inspire you throughout the year-helping you to reach your dreams and envelop all you want your year to be.
Last year, I chose Grace as my Word, this year, my word is Charity.
Why Charity? I was inspired by this quote shared by Melissa of 320 Sycamore last year…
Did you read that? WOW. Powerful stuff. I love that this word encompasses so much-our relationships with everyone from our families to strangers to ourselves. It encourages us to look inward, make changes for the better, and positively lift those around us.
Truth be told-this is not an easy one for me. I tend to hold onto past hurts and disappointments (tightly), and I don’t give people the benefit of the doubt nearly as much as I should. But, as they say, what worth doing is every easy?
So, what’s your Word?
