My word this year was inspired by a song. It moved me when it first came out, and still moves me today. It really describes how I want my year to go. If you've read my latest post on TheElementaryProfessor.blogspot.com you know I sabotage my own success. I have some issues to deal with this year.
My heart burns every time I hear the lines in the chorus of this song:

I know that's a dumb reason, but I've always had original words that were not inspired by reading someone else's.

I share that story with you because part of thriving, for me, is letting go of how others think of me. Everytime I think I'm so over that, that it's so junior high, God shows me another way that I let that type of immaturity rule my life. It's embarassing. So I'm sharing it here. ;)
Here's to a year of thriving. Thriving through letting go, clearing out, enjoying, creating success, and an atmosphere of health in all areas.
