As I have thought and thought about my word for 2009, I kept coming back to the idea that I want to do more than just get by or just survive, I want to do “more.”
Not just survive – thrive.
I know it may seem selfish, when you read the definition, but my thought is this – it doesn’t have to mean just that. I want to thrive in all aspects of my life, from family, to friends, to work, and play… I want to thrive in my spirituality and my creativity. I truly believe that we were put here to do more than just make-do. We were put here with an infinite amount of potential inside of us and it is time for me to start tapping into that and thriving!
So, as I look to 2009, I have my word – Thrive.
Now, I believe it is time to finish out my year of change with a move, so that all of this will line up for an amazing 2009!
