my guiding word ~ twenty-fourteen ...

♥Nourish♥
What one relishes, nourishes ~Benjamin Franklin
***
As in past years, I like to begin January 1st with a 'guiding word'.
Usually around mid December, I start thinking about my Guiding Word, being aware of subtle hints of what it will be.  Somehow it always seems to appear over & over.
This year, the word that spoke to me when I was reading, watching television, having a conversation, spotting a quote was
 *Nourish*
Divine nourishment
 creativity,
 mind,
 body,
 soul,
 home
You nourish your soul
by fulfilling
your destiny.
Our heart always leads us
to our destiny,
our soul
tells us
when we're there
~Harold Kushner~

Hello Deb... I love your guiding word... "Nourish"... and the beautiful meanings behind it... I also love that it kept drifting back into your thoughts, letting you know that indeed was the word to guide you into the new year... your photo is beautiful!... I am so anxious for our flowers, butterflies, bees and all of God's creatures to return once more as Spring approaches... much love, xoxo Julie Marie PS I just posted my word too... actually, two of them... one because of you...

Perfect word, I love it and all that is stands for. I am going with Embrace, I think I have to embrace life more.
Hugs to you,

Happy New Year! Nourish is a great word choice. This is my first year of having a word, and I have picked the Danish word hygge.

Deb said...

love the word Embrace - that was my guiding word for 2012 ♥ I hope it is magical for you Meredith xo

hi Kristie ~ it is so ironic to read that your guiding word is hygge. I had never heard it until recently & was pronouncing it incorrectly ~ it is (hYOOguh). Love that it's meaning is "cozy". Such a lovely word ♥
