I've spent some time the past couple of days deciding what my "word(s)" for 2014 would be. I knew right away what the first one would be:
Back in September I had a conversation with my friend Mindy about how I was frustrated in one of my friendships because I felt the person wasn't putting as much into the friendship. Mindy suggested that maybe she was, but in her own language, that maybe we had different love languages.
I have spent time since then thinking about what she said so in 2014 my focus is going to be on love. I want to take the time to get to know the love language of those around me and then I want to use that knowledge to better love on them.
Now on to the next word. I knew the feeling I wanted the word to have. I get frustrated and worry and in general let things bother me way too much. I just couldn't quite find the word I wanted. Then I saw this on Instagram:
Aha! That was it! I wouldn't have a second word, but instead I would have a phrase.
