I saw on a blog, or maybe it was a Facebook post, that someone was choosing a word for the year. I’ve never seen this done, thought it was kinda stupid at first…just being honest…but I think I finally understand why they are choosing a word for their year and I am going to jump on that bandwagon too. lol HA!
So, my word for 2016 is DISCOVER. Why did I choose this word?
I chose discover for many reasons. We had so many changes in 2015 that ended a few chapters, and now it’s time to write new ones. I want to discover my voice. Somewhere along the way I lost it and haven’t been able to find it again. Discover civilian life. Sounds a little silly at first, but when you’ve lived a certain way for 10+ years, you forget what other ways of life are like. Discover a schedule for my family. We no longer have something dictating our life and our world no longer revolves around the army. It’s time to figure out a schedule that works for us. Discover what makes us happy. Again, for so long we’ve done what the army to us to do. Yes, I say us instead of Aaron, because where he went, we went. It’s just as simple as that. He loved being a soldier! That was his calling and he was a great soldier. Now it’s time to find a new calling, a new happiness, a new drive for life. For 2016, I just want to discover anything and everything. I want to discover what life has to offer us and discover what we can make out of it. <3
