One Word

01 January, 2015

Whoops! Better late than never.

It's that time of year again to pick my "word" for the year.

I kept last years word to myself. It was something I needed to do work on and focus on without expectations. Last years word was breathe. It as a reminder to myself to take each moment as it comes and to not dwell on the "what ifs". It mostly worked. But there were days, weeks even, when things became too much. And remembering to "just breathe" became incredibly important.

This year, I am reminding myself of the strength I have learned and been reminded that I have. This years word is:
[per-sist, -zist] 
verb (used without object)
1. to continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, course of action, or the like, especially in spite of opposition, remonstrance, etc.:
2. to last or endure tenaciously:
3. to be insistent in a statement, request, question, etc.

It is time to forge through the bullshit and negativity and remind myself that I am stronger than most days I believe I am. When doubt sets in and I'm feeling lost, I need to remember just what it is I am here to do and that sometimes you have to fight for it.
