After living in 2014 for a week I've finally decided on my word of the year: Breathe

Every time I think of this new year and all the possibilities it holds for me I can't help but feel a little bit overwhelmed. There is just so much that you can do in 365 days. The possibilities are truly limitless. This year is going to give birth to many decisions, some important, some not so important, and some that seem life changing but really turn out to be just a drop in the ocean of life. It's kinda scary, but it's also exciting. I really feel like 2014 is going to be one of my biggest years yet; I just have to remember to breathe. 

Breathe, it's not the end of the world.
Breathe, you can and will get this done. 
Breathe, you've been in over your head more before. 
Breathe, nobody else really knows what they're doing either. 
Breathe, it's going to be okay. 

I know it might not be the most exciting word, especially compared to all the other great words I've seen people choose for the year: Shine; Happiness; Possibility; Hustle; Positivity. "Breathe" isn't showy, it's simple. I mean let's be honest, it's a verb describing one of the most basic human functions. But I think that's why I like it so much for this year. "Breathe" is about empowering myself to know that doing it my way is good enough. My 2014 isn't about being the biggest or the best, it's about being me.
