A group of bloggers has decided to pick a word to define these next 12 months.
A word to inspire you, to live by or to make the year better.
My word for 2014 is relax.
1. make or become less tense or anxious.
2. make (a rule or restriction) less strict while not abolishing it.
You see, I have irrational fears.
To the point where I literally have to laugh at myself.
If I leave the toaster plugged in, it will surely catch on fire and burn my house down.
If I don’t put my dog on the bed when she gets “cold”, she will definitely freeze to death.
If I don’t lock my back door, someone will break in and steal all of our belongings…but if I do lock the back door, how will my neighbor get in to save the dogs when our house catches on fire from the toaster I left plugged in.
I wish that I could say I was kidding.
I wish that I could not worry about every single little detail.
But I do.
So for 2014…I am going to try my hardest to just relax a little bit.
To let go.
To trust in myself…in my husband…and in the world.
I want to live a little bit more freely.
I don’t want to be consumed by constant worry.
And I want to maybe leave the toaster plugged in once or twice.
Here’s to 2014…hopefully a very relaxing and fun year!
What is your word?
