Looking back on last years 2014 word of joy, I realize it was the perfect word to describe the year. Each day was a choice to be joyful. I realized that dwelling on those little things, though they may have seemed huge at the time, didn't bring me joy. Instead of reacting negatively, I chose to be joyful and active in decision making and personal growth. This year, I have landed on the word thrive. What the heck does thrive even mean? How can I thrive in the year 2015? The word thrive to me means optimal living. No, this is not a quest to live out a perfect life. But, more of a quest to live my life in the most optimal way I can. It's a word that challenges me to be present and awake in all things emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Oh, I can feel it in my bones. 2015 is going to be another great year. Thrive on friends, thrive on.
