Last year, instead of a resolution, I decided I wanted a word for the year. Something that would describe my attitude toward things and hopefully influence the way the year would go. The word for 2013 was: Joy.
At times, I would forget the word and have to come back to it. Sometimes it was hard to find the joy in every situation, but for the most part, my year turned out wonderfully. Here are some of my favorite moments.
In my year of Joy, I started a new job, I moved in with and got engaged to a wonderful man, I turned 30, I did a ton of traveling, and I had some great times with friends.
For 2014, the word is (fittingly): Grateful. It will be a big year.
