My 2014 Word of the Year: Inspire!

Pin It
Over the last several weeks, I've been thinking about my 2014 word of the year. A word that creates a little spark, one that makes me smile...a word that sums up what I'm going to attempt to accomplish this year.

A few days ago, the new PB catalog arrived and I saw the pillow above.

It spoke to me.

It reads:

Inspire: To fill with the desire, confidence or enthusiasm to do something well.

To this, I would add or to TRY SOMETHING NEW! if it doesn't work out, try again.

After all, as a dear friend once told me as I was lamenting being a "beginner":

"Everyone is a beginner at some point. Look at it this way; an amateur built the ark 
                                                                                             and a team of professionals built the titanic." 

It's my hope and my goal for 2014 to inspire you each and every day... have the desire or confidence decorate your home and garden, try something new, or to create something beautiful from reclaimed, re-purposed or found items; 

...and to know that each of YOU inspire ME in some way, every single day!  

Happy New Year!
