One Little Word 2014

***** I have for several years now been inspired by Ali Edwards  and chosen "One Word" something to focus on for a year and to grow with, explore and live.  Past years have included Joy, Focus, Organize . . .
This year I choose Breathe.
I am not sure where it will take me but it is the word that speaks to me. There is a lot of change happening over the next year and I am sure I will need to stop and Just breathe on more than one occasion.

breathe

verb (used without object), breathed [breethd] Show IPA , breath·ing.
1.
to take air, oxygen, etc., into the lungs and expel it; inhale and exhale; respire.
2.
(in speech) to control the outgoing breath in producing voice and speech sounds.
3.
to pause, as for breath; take rest: How about giving me a chance to breathe?
4.
to move gently or blow lightly, as air.
5.
to live; exist: Hardly a man breathes who has not known great sorrow.
 “Sometimes it's the same moments that take your breath away that breathe purpose and love back into your life.”
Steve Maraboli

I often choose a word of the year but don't always "document" the fact that I've chosen a particular word. I'll just keep the word in mind. And "breathe" is so warm and inviting, a positive word and yet a reminder.

I don't always document it either but at least this year - it makes me be accountable . . . with my 3 teens underfoot . . . it needs to be up front and in my face . . .
