Freedom. It’s my word for 2014. I’ve had it picked out for several months now. One day in September it just came to me, and I’ve held onto it since then. I can’t fully express what ‘freedom’ means to me as I anticipate the coming 12 months, but every time I mull over that word, it just floods my soul with resolve & hope. My friend made a necklace for me with “freedom” etched on it, and I know it will be a wonderful reminder to me every time I wear it.
2014 is untouched. A blank canvas. This new year will hold many new ventures for us, and I grow more excited the more I think of it. My fears for the coming year and the unknown it holds are growing dim the more I choose to hope for good.
I hope to build new friendships & strengthen old ones
I hope to deepen my love for the gospel & care for others more freely
More enjoying these precious times with just me & Jeff
less screen time & more reading & journaling
More chats over coffee
Less assuming, more grace
More thrifting, flea markets, nesting, & more visits to the farmer’s market
Less processed foods & more whole eating
More rejoicing in the baby steps & less stressing over imperfections
More settling down
Cheers to 2014.
Last year, my word was “consistency,” and I blogged about it here.
