My #OneWord 2015 – Intentional

Each year I choose one word to help guide my goals and action steps for the year. I first came across the idea for choosing a word for the year after reading Debbie Macomber’s Thursday’s at Eight where the characters meet weekly to help support and motivate one another during difficult transitions within their lives.

The Power of Words

“Words are free. It’s how you use them that may cost you.” -Kushand Wizdom I remember years ago, someone very close to me said some very harsh words that stayed with me for years.
