Word of the Year

Words You've no doubt heard some buzz about having a word for the year, a word that is your focus all year long...and this is a practice I've done for the past 3 years and believe is worth continuing in 2014.  Now, I can be a little "woo woo" and would say the words each year found me.  In fact, the one for 2014 presented itself and I kept overlooking it.  At first, it seemed like a "harder" word, but it kept presenting itself.  As I accepted it as my word for the next year, it changed into something that is quite beautiful.  My word for 2014 is.....


And even in the selecting of the word, I got a taste of surrender.  You could say I surrendered to the word, since I was at first resistant.  Then, almost like magic, it morphed into something quite beautiful!  I look forward to seeing the word teach me over the year!

How about you?  Do you choose a word?  How do you choose your word?  Have you found it useful?  Are you choosing a word for 2014?
