Build one little word 2014

My "One Little Word" for 2014 is BUILD. 

While “build” lacks the luster of many of the words on my maybe list (ex. magic, rejoice, delight and create), I like it for its solidity.  It feels sensible and strong.  It leaves room to create, but it has a tough exterior. 
In the word build, I see room to grow and room to improve.  It is a word that invokes the second phase of something – as in, “I already like where I am and want to build on that foundation.”  I think this pretty accurately reflects where I am today. 

Much like my phrase from last year, “build” encourages action.  It is a verb and it is my reminder that my big dreams will only happen when sufficient work is put behind them. 

In my word I see a space to prepare.  Building up to a new role as a stay-at-home mama.  Building new routines and new schedules.

I see room to create.  Building new ways to express myself and new ways to share.  Building up the moments for little boys to remember.

I see a mandate to get to work.  Building a business.  Building an income.

I see space to encourage and motivate.  Building up others.  Building up the talents and imaginations of my two little guys. 

I am excited to take on 2014 with my word by my side.  Together, we will accomplish big things. 

I've created a OLW inspiration board on Pinterest.  I'd love to have you follow along. 

I am also really looking forward to taking Ali Edwards' official One Little Word workshop.  I am anxious to see how the prompts, homework and general encouragement of the class help me to put my word to use.
