Smile {word of the year}

Smile {word of the year}

I will be 30 at the end of this year.  While that doesn’t bother me so much, knowing that these days are just going by faster and faster does.

I am a thinker, and i often find myself in my head, rather than right where I should be, which is in the moment.  But I am also a pretty happy person, and I *love* to laugh.  Like, the uncontrollable, my stomach hurts and I am crying kind of laugh.

My word for this year is a simple one, which needs no explanation.

Smile.

I want to smile more; I want to be out of my head, let more things go and just smile.  When Max Payne is holding his very last straw and it isn’t even 9:30am yet, I just want to smile.  When Lexie is having her fourth over-emotional, four-year old melt down of the day, I just want to smile.

Because when you are smiling, you can’t say something too harsh.  It is hard to hurt a little person’s heart when you are smiling.  And since I am surrounded by tiny humans all day during this season of life, it is pretty important that I build up those hearts, not tear them down.

So, Smile.  =)

What is your word of the year?
