I had a good back-up word but it just wasn't the word that called to my heart..."This. This is what you need to do in 2013."
As I sat quietly in my apartment on Christmas eve I was thinking of how different life can be sometimes and you just have to accept change....
The word embrace came to mind.
Sitting there quietly I began to realize this was my word.
There are several definitions for the word embrace including: accept willingly and to avail oneself to.
2012 was a year of daring to get out of my comfort zone and choose to do brave things.
I want to continue to make those choices.
To embrace a life of living daringly.
To embrace adventure.
To embrace love.
To embrace change.
To embrace the relationships in my life.
To embrace the messy.
To embrace hope.
To embrace MY story.
To embrace the new things He has for me.
To embrace joy.
I have been waiting for the excitement that comes with finding your one word and it is here.
I am ready to embrace 2013 and all it has in store!
Do you have a one word for 2013? What is it?

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19aLet us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
I learned living life daringly means accepting defeat some days... and yet choosing to get up the next day and try again.
It means letting go of some dreams so new ones can take their place.
It means daring to hope even when you feel utterly hopeless.
It means ugly crying and letting go...and then choosing to move forward in hope and trust.
While I am not too disappointed 2012 is coming to a close I cannot help but look back and see beauty...even on the hard days. And how hope and trust sustained me in the most amazing ways.
Tomorrow I am going to share my OneWord for 2013...it took a lot of pondering to come up with it but once I found it...I am so excited to see what comes from it!
Did you choose a word this year? What was it and how has it been a theme for you?

Lots of things are going on behind the scenes as I try to figure things out and the old posts are coming...it may just take me some time to figure it out.
I hope you will join me here as I spruce up my new home and make it a reflection of me.
