So it’s this big trendy thing right now to choose a word at the beginning of the year that you want to define the year ahead for you. Full disclosure: I am all over this like stink. I love this idea of choosing a word, like a mantra almost, to provide direction and focus for the year head.

I’ve been doing some thinking about this these last few weeks. The word that has emerged for me for 2015 is strength. I have a feeling that this coming year is going to be a challenging one. What with dealing with CBG’s depression, and the current less-than-awesome state of our marriage, I have a sense that the next 12 months are going to require a lot of work. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel that any of this is bigger than we are; it’s just going to take time, effort, patience, and most of all — strength — to slay these demons.

And so…that is what my focus will be for the 2015. Being strong. Digging deep and finding my own strength again. Strengthening my marriage. Being strong enough to support my husband as he works to regain his own strength.

It won’t be easy. It won’t happen overnight. But at this point, I am confident in my ability — and in our ability — to do this.
