I've never done the whole "pick a word for the new year" thing. I've done resolutions and goals, but never a word. This year, I wanted to change that. I wanted to pick a word that would define 2013. I tossed around a few different options (relax, focus, sleep, etc.), but I finally settled on... Celebrate.
I want to celebrate everything this year. From the small things to the large things. I want to celebrate every occasion, every holiday, every birthday, but not just those typical celebration worthy things. I want to celebrate everyday life. I'm here on this wonderful earth, I'm breathing, I'm living, I'm healthy, and I am blessed. So very, very blessed. And I want to celebrate that! I want to get outside and soak up the sunshine. I want to take a spontaneous trip to the coast, or to Colorado, or maybe to New Orleans. I want to laugh more, love more, and live more. And celebrate every bit of it. Even in the hard times I want to find a way to celebrate.
Because life is more fun when you celebrate it. And besides, who doesn't love a good celebration, right?
