I know the second weekend in January is already upon me, but I’ve been inspired to write a New Year posting similar to this one one.
Carrie from Chasing Big Dreams wrote about a word(s) that summed up her 2012, along with a few new words to charge forward with into 2013, rather than New Year Resolutions.
Since I've never heard of this concept before, I was not able to sum up my 2012 into one word. However, looking forward to the possibilities of my future this year, I think I have found a word that will fit nicely.
Flexible defined by www.dictionary.com as: Capable of bending easily without breaking. Able to be easily modified to respond to altered circumstances or conditions.
Here are a few of the areas that will pull and twist me, hopefully without breaking me:
~Finishing my last semester of nursing school
~Being supportive of my husband’s new job responsibilities that will take him on business trips more often leaving us without him
~Cleaning and purging my home in the attempt to get it ready to sell
~Keeping said home clean during “showings” from the Realtor (with two messy teenagers)
~Selling our house and possibly living in an apartment if only temporarily
~Studying for the NCLEX (state boards) AND passing them
~Searching, interviewing, and accepting a nursing job
~Saying goodbye to my family members and friends
~Moving to Texas
~Finding a home
~Adjusting to the positive and negatives of moving
~Learning the southern lifestyle
~Starting out as a fresh baby nurse
I think that’s about it. I would love to put my new word to the test, and see if in January 2014, I was able to be flexible. Here's to the new year!
