In 2012 my word was intentional.
In 2013 it was simply be.
I was thinking about words the last week or so, trying them on for size like a pair of jeans that may be too tight or gap a little in the back. I love words. Words are my thing. Words are one of my love languages (after sleep and quality time). I needed a good word.
And then the word quiet came to me when I wasn't expecting it to. I'm guessing it was God, but I can't say for sure. I didn't really like the word, so I tossed it aside. But quiet keeps returning to me over and over again. I don't know what it means to have this for my word this year. Intentional - that makes sense. Be - yes, just be, how lovely. But quiet?
Am I supposed to be quiet? Make my life quiet? Take more time for quiet? And does quiet mean verbally quiet or something more abstract? I am still unsure.
But I know that it is my word for 2014.
We shall see.
