One Word Challenge from Ali Edwards

I loved having one word last year to be my "theme word" and spur me on to action and becoming more of who I am meant to be. Ali Edwards has a word she selects every year, and in the same fashion, I have selected "choose" to be my word. I want to make more conscious choices in my life. I want to choose family above business. I want to choose faith as my strength. I want to choose the best life has to offer. I want to choose joy and peace in my life and give it to others as well. I want to choose to serve. I want to choose. I just want to choose.

from Merriam-Webster Online:
Main Entry: choose

Function: verb

Etymology: Middle English chosen, from Old English cēosan; akin to Old High German kiosan to choose, Latin gustare to taste

2 a
