Word Of The Year

Last year, I read an inspiring post from The Lettered Cottage. The article was about choosing a word of the year, the instructions were

"choose one word that has the potential to inspire you and create intention in your life, all year long"

For 2012 my word was EXPERIENCE and it was a perfect word for me in my both my personal life and my business life. In my personal life I really did choose to experience every moment as it came I laughed, cried, and enjoyed every moment of my family. In my business I gained experience, I learned so much and I have grown to new heights.

For 2013 I have chosen my word; STRIDE.

Google defines stride as:

Walk with long, decisive steps in a specified direction: "he strode across the road".
A long, decisive step.

To me this word defines what my business goals are for 2013. I will continue to grow my business in STRIDE. I will walk with purpose and thought, I will achieve a steady effective pace, and when I hit a setback I will take that in STRIDE too. 

This past year, thanks to Facebook and Blogging, I have been inspired by many of you fellow; furniture painting, junk repurposing, crafting, fearless, brilliant, and amazing divas across this big world. I am proud to be a woman with a dream and I think it's a wonderful thing to see so many other women that share the same dream. So I am sure many of you will hit your STRIDE as well and achieve awesome things! 

What will your word be? I challenge you to choose a word to inspire you this year and share it with others. 

I have BIG DREAMS and I expect to reach them one day, for now I will catch my STRIDE and continue to move in a positive direction.
