nurture ~ to foster care, nourish, encourage, cultivate..
And so, we farewell the year that was and welcome in the new.
My 2014 was, well, momentous actually. There were so many significant moments of varying emotion. The weight of grief, the terror of bushfires, elation, gratitude and joy for the simplicity of life and the gifts that surround us.
It's a year that I am pleased to see come to a close, while at the same time, feeling overwhelmingly grateful for experiences that have challenged me, enlightened me and changed me.
I'm still learning to embrace the changes, they go way down deep, and so the word I choose this year needs to open me up and be a constant reminder.
My word this year will be nurture. It's a lot broader than to just nurture myself, I know I need to do that. Finding balance, taking care of myself in order to take care of my family, it goes without saying, and I need to give this much greater priority. But to nurture also needs to be about giving back, and it needs to be far less about me. I want to nurture the foundations that surround me, within my family, my community, and the village that I want to be a part of.
What's your 'one word' for the year ahead? You can share it with Bron..
Happy New Year to you, friends. May 2015 bring all that you hope for x
