One Word for the Year?

To succeed in making contact with, influencing, impressing, interesting, convincing. To establish communication with. To succeed in touching or seizing with an outstretched hand. To get to or arrive at in some course of progress or action.

There has been an idea bouncing around Blogland that I am going to try and embrace. Pick ONE word to inspire you for the year. I wanted to credit someone with the idea but when I Googled it there were almost 300 million hits! Evidently, I'm not the only one who likes this idea.

It turns out that this was a very hard thing to do! I LOVE WORDS! I went to the web to search for verbs. I figured if I chose one it should be an action word. Look at the beautiful poem above - "REACH", "SEEK", "LOOK", "DREAM" - How's a girl supposed to choose? Well... I'm going to bend the rules a little. I will focus on the word REACH for 2014, BUT I would like to have a monthly word, too. How can January and July really have the same emphasis? They are too different.   

If you had to choose your word for 2014 what would it be? 


  1. Hey, we are on the same wave length! I posted my word, too! I love inspirational and motivating! :)

    1. I really should be using your word this year! I am afraid being healthy isn't my strong suit. (Junk food junkie) Maybe I'll get some inspiration from you. Changing subjects I go to the beach every June with a friend who has 18 year old Autistic twin boys so I have a little idea about going out to eat with them. I should connect you two cause I bet you would have a LOT to talk about. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hey Jeanette!
    I think my word will be "trust". I need to trust in myself, others and most of all, to trust in the LORD that everything will work out for the best.
    All the best to YOU! Love, Kay
