My 2015 word: SHINE

I've been thinking about this for a while.  One word for the entire year.  A word to live by, a word to make apart of my life, a word to own.  And when I saw this class from Ali Edwards | One Little Word, I knew this was something I wanted to do.  It's $31 to participate.  I even purchased this class as a gift for a close friend. #onelittleword

I also decided to participate in the SNAP One Word Challenge.  You can sign up FREE to get prompted each month to stay on track with your goals.  Each month you will be reminded of your challenge and providing you with prompts and encouragement.  I love SNAP!  Sign up HERE #onewordchallenge

Then came the hard part.  What word could I use.  What word can I hang on to this year to help me make 2015 better than 2014.  I thought of so many words and started to write.

And then it just came to me.  I want to SHINE. Shine...yes, shine.

shine [shahyn]
verbshone or shined, shining.

to give forth or glow with light; shed or cast light.
to be bright with reflected light; glisten; sparkle.
(of light) to appear brightly or strongly, especially uncomfortably so
to be or appear unusually animated or bright, as the eyes or face.
to appear with brightness or clearness, as feelings.

I want to take all my highs, all my lows, all my mistakes and learn from them all.  From all of that, I believe I can then SHINE.  Just like when a glass breaks, through all of it's pieces it still shines when the sunlight hits it. This just reminds me, no matter what, I can SHINE through anything.  Last year was a tough year. There was lots of breathing, crying and lots of positive thinking.  I want to invite this word into my life, I want to live with this word each day.  I want to mediate on this word weekly. I want to help someone else SHINE.
