Well, after much pondering and soul searching, I’ve finally picked my One Word for 2014.   The one concept that keeps coming back to me is this desire to find more creative ways to love more this year.  Yet, the word love didn’t seem like the word I was supposed to choose.  It’s more than that.  It’s the fruit of loving others. When we choose to love, we choose to validate.  

There’s my word.  VALIDATE

This year, I want to focus more attention on acknowledging others.

I want to take the time to extend overflowing acceptance and appreciation.

I want others to feel seen. I want others to feel heard.

A couple of weeks ago I ordered this great shirt from People of the Second Chance.


It’s quickly become one of my favorite shirts. It makes me want to do a little happy dance just like my Storyline “Story Matters” shirt. 🙂

Today, while I was wearing this shirt, I was reminded of my One Word. When we choose to love others, beautiful things happen.  People feel welcomed.  People feel included.  People feel seen.  People feel validated.
