My word for 2014

All over the Blogosphere, bloggers are choosing a "word" to represent their year.  Just a little reminder of maybe something they'd like to accomplish, or even change. 

I really wish I did this in previous years.  Although it may be hard to predict what your word for the year will be,  looking back in  2012, my word would have been "survive." 2012 was a very trying year for me, emotionally.  My Dad had his liver transplant, we unexpectedly lost a family pet, and I had a very drawn out miscarriage.  Sure there were also many happy moments in 2012.  Overall though, the year was hard.  But as hard as it was, I hung on.  I remained strong.  I survived

2013 was an amazing year for me.  Looking back my word should have been "grow." A huge part of the year I was pregnant with our sweet Avery.  I was growing this perfect little miracle inside my body.  Our family was growing! 

So what will my word for 2014 be?  Although it might be hard to predict, this is what I'm going with...

Yes.  Breathe.  Let me explain. 

I'm the type of person that has a million little things going on inside my head AT.ALL.TIMES.  Seriously. 

I could be out on a dinner date with Jared {not that it happens often!}, and while we're having a conversation, I think of the pile of dishes in the sink.  I need to call my mom back.  Did I check Lincoln's backpack?  Is my doctors appointment next week, or the week after?  What do I need at Target? 

I think about these things what seems like simultaneously. 

And then my heart starts to race, and I may even get a little light headed, and I think to myself..."OMG KAMI BREATHE!!!"

And I take a deep breath.  And exhale. 

This year, I need to remember to just do that.  To breathe.  To focus on just the moment. 

As simple as that sounds, I know it's going to be difficult.  And I'm sure if you think about it, it would be hard for you, as well. 

Let's face it.  Our lives are so incredibly busy.  We seemingly go from one thing to the next.  It's just all to easy to lose sight of what's right in front of us.  To lose focus on the moment. 

Well, I don't want to miss any moments.  So I'm going to breathe.  I'm going to soak up each second, one breath at a time.

What's your word for 2014?
