2013 Word of the Year

Source, Source, Source,

This year I jumped on the Yearly Word Bandwagon. And, it’s very fitting for where I’m in my life right now, I think.

It could be little things, like cutting my hair.


To bigger things, like putting our house on the market, again. (Surprise)

To buying a ticket to a blog conference and flying hours away, to a place where I don’t know anyone. (Just breath!)

To knowing that I put way too much of my happiness and security in someone else’s hands when it should be in God’s hands.

I have a lot to work on.

I get scared to be alone.

I get scared of change.

I get scared of what people will think.

Why? This is my life. Not anyone elses.

It’s time to be Brave.

Do things that I’ve wanted to do, things that I feel I’m being pulled to do. And, I can’t wait to see how things play out.

Bring it on 2013, I’m more than ready.
