Every year around this time I choose a "Word of the Year."
In 2012 I chose the word patience. I felt like I wasn't getting anywhere in life and decided to just enjoy the season I was in and wait in patience for the future.
In 2013 that word was trust,, I had no clue that just 3 months into that year I would meet my future husband. I knew that it was the right decision to marry Colten, and I trusted that it was God's plan for us to get engaged just 8 weeks after meeting. I've seen so many blessings from saying yes that night.
In 2014 I chose the word fearless. I graduated cosmetology school, a choice that many disagreed with. We decided to buy a house at 21 & 23 years old, which was a SCARY huge commitment for me. We got a dog, which was really scary for someone who has always been a little afraid of dogs, and now he is the love of my life.

Now we are on the brink of 2015, and I've chosen a new word... NOURISH.
I want to nourish myself physically by learning to eat healthier. I'm not familiar with many healthy foods, and there are many I don't like. But I want to take this year training my body to want the junk food less, and want the earth foods more.
I want to nourish myself spiritually by spending time in the scriptures every single day all by myself. I've seen the blessings of scripture study and want to keep myself spiritually nourished every single day.
I want to nourish myself emotionally by saying "No" to unnecessary crazy. I will speak kind words to myself, and celebrate small successes.
I want to nourish myself mentally by starting school again, and completing my associates degree in May.
I'm grateful for pretty dresses that make me feel like I can conquer the world. Like this gorgeous one from Eshakti. They want to empower you too, so they are giving one of my lucky readers a $50 gift card to their site!
