My Word

Not as in "oh, my word!" Just, my word. I've had several friends tell me that they choose a word or a theme for the year. Something they always try to have in the back of their mind. Something they can stand by. A reminder of something they want to work on, and use to help improve themselves. I thought this was an awesome idea, so I went ahead and took the liberty of copying it.

I have been thinking about it for the past few weeks, and finally came to the decision of what I want my word to be.

And it is...drumroll please...LOVE.

I have been thinking about the things that I want to improve and change in my life and almost all of them can be tied to LOVE. I think of the people in my life that I really look up to and strive to be like and all of them posses the same quality. You genuinely feel like they LOVE you whenever you come in contact with them. It is not a front. It is genuine LOVE. Because of the LOVE they have for others they are so willing to serve at any chance they get. It doesn't matter if you like them because they are going to LOVE you anyways. It doesn't matter if you just cut them off in traffic, if you didn't follow through with your plans, or if you aren't being especially nice cause they'll still LOVE you. I want to develop this quality. Bear with me, cause I'm sure some of you reading are thinking..."oh we'll see Megs...we'll just wait and see," But maybe show me some LOVE too as I try real hard, k?

p.s. ooh...and maybe with my word of the year being LOVE this will be my year to find the smokin' hot man of my dreams and fall in LOVE....I'll keep you posted on that one too ;)

p.p.s. please note how obsessed I am with the above photo. Fireworks + LOVE = best picture ever.

Also...I LOVE you all.
