2013 - One Little Word

First off.... 
Happy New Year!!

I know this year is going to be Bigger & Better... 
(which frankly kind of scares me...)

Over the last few years some friends of mine had always chosen "A Word" to Help them - Inspire them - through the NEW Year... like a Resolution ----> to the Word.  The Word had meaning to them... 
The First time I had ever heard of this "Choose a Word" for the new year was the Year I met Melody Ross.
You can read about the post I read from her HERE We used to live in the same town 1.5yrs ago before we moved closer to Boise State University.  We lived in this town for 6 yrs. & I had the Pleasure of getting to know the Ross Family for a few years before we moved.  

I was intrigued by this whole "one word thing"... I've never been one to really "Do" Resolutions... I don't know why, just haven't. I've never been one to really Set "Goals" for my self either... 
'till noVae Clothing was created. 
I have found that for me... I have to write things down.... even my "to do lists".... it makes me accountable for what I need to get done & it also 
Who knew that once you hit 30 something not only does your metabolism do weird things... but so does your memory! -lol  :)
For the First time in my life I'm going to do this "One Little Word" thing.  
2013 has so much to offer & I want to stay Focused enough to reach it's full potential. 

The Word I have Chosen is: 

As I pondered over the last few weeks of what Word I was going to choose... 
I wanted it to be a word that I struggle with or need to improve on. 
Don't get me wrong... I'm still a work a holic & moving Forward isn't hard... most of the time. lol
I pondered about what this word would mean to me in this year & How it will keep me 
when I need it most. 

With Grad. School {hopefully} coming up this Summer for us... means a move. 
A move to a New State... 
New house to live in
New Schools for the kids
New Everything! 
Even though we have "Prepared" our Children that when the Hubby Graduates this Spring
(gosh that is FUN to say... "This" Spring... not next... not in Years... "This"!)
It's still kind of scary... 
but I know I'm going to need to to remind myself to just Keep 
Moving FORWARD & be STRONG & push through these 
New Trials that Will come our way.

I've never Ran a Business before... so Everything to some extent is so New to me.
noVae Clothing  had HUGE growth this last year (*Blessing!) & we're only 2 years young.... 
I can Only imagine what kind of Growth we "Could" go through this Year - 2013!
It's Exciting Yet scary... These are just a few Very hard Trails that I know I'm 
going to have to face & just tell myself to Keep Moving Forward...
even when Times get tough. 
I have to...

keep going
never stand still
push forward
never give up
press on

 Sometimes I think it's easy to just Stand still... & not move forward....
But then Depression takes over along with other thoughts about yourself
& whatever situation - trial you are dealing with. 

Sometimes.... I wish it was easy as Pushing a button...

I often think back to when Tom first started going back to school Years ago (P/T) in the evenings... & also
worked 2 jobs -1 Full time & the other P/T.  
I know it was hard for him... because it was hard for me too. 
I remember asking him one day How he did it...? because frankly... I wasn't.

He told me he just knew it was something he HAD to DO.  
He was doing it for Us, for the Family, for Me, For Him.
He had Faith & was Moving Forward.

I didn't.

I didn't have Faith (well... much of it) 
& Moving Forward was Really Hard for me.

I know I have grown & my Faith has become Stronger because of the Choices that we made for him 
to go back to School & for the Trails that we have & still will continue to endure.
But I know as I continue to Move FORWARD my Faith will also become Stronger & I 
know I will be able to get through these tough Trials that lie ahead for us this Year - 20thirteen!

I'm typing this all out now... 
as a Reminder for me to come back & read & re-read throughout this year 
so I don't Forget... because after all... I will still be 30 something +1 more year!
