In 2012, the word I chose was ‘fulfill’. I can’t say that I lived my life in 2012 with that word in mind and trying to live up to it, but that was the intention at the beginning of the year. I don’t think I chose a word for 2013. I don’t remember doing so and I don’t have a blog post about one.

This year, I choose the word SHINE.

And I plan to do so in 2014.

I am going to radiate, sparkle, shimmer, be outstanding, be successful, stand out, gleam, glitter, and SHINE in 2014!

I am going to put up little reminders to shine every day. It’s my decision whether I do so or not and I will choose to shine.

I know it may not happen everyday, but I am going to give it my best shot!

What is your word for 2014? How are you planning on living that word for 2014?

Keep shining….
