My 2014 Word | Grow

grow title
In 2014 I want to grow.
Not in height – I’m tall enough.

I want to grow as a wife.
as a mother.
as a worker.
as a blogger.
as a communicator.
as a do-er.
as a person.

We all start the year with big goals, high expectations, and a list full of dreams.  Well this year, I’m keeping it simple. I’m taking it back to four simple letters.

How am I going to grow?

I’m going to reflect.I want to reflect on the great days with my family, and write down to remember WHY those moments are great so I can do those more often. I want to reflect on what things my husband and I argue about, so I can work on my behaviors to eliminate from making the same mistakes.

I’m going to learn.  I want to research, study and embrace more in the world so I can build my strengths at work, blogging, and as a person.  I’m going to listen to those around me and learn what makes their world go round; I’m going to learn what I can bring to the them to make their days better.

I’m going to love.  I want to be more kind to those around me.  I want to embrace the challenges my children give me.  I want to forgive more and hug often.  I want to embrace that at the end of the day, it’s the people you love in life you want surrounding you.

I’m going to keep coming back to this word – grow.  I’m going to remind myself, each opportunity in life is a chance to grow.

Something I haven’t been able to do in quite some time is be able to answer a simple list of questions about myself.  I don’t know my own answers to these types of questions:

Favorite color
Favorite scent
Favorite food
Favorite movie
Favorite sounds
Favorite beverage
Favorite singer
Favorite pastime
Things that excite me visually
The style of art I appreciate
What type of fashion I desire most
If I could travel anywhere in the world, where would I go

Isn’t that weird?  I find that weird.  I hope by the end of this year I can reflect on myself and the world around me enough I learn these things about myself.
Stay tuned, I’ll keep ya posted!

Have you chosen a word of the year for 2014?
