Word Revision for 2014

My 2014 word was "reach"

to arrive somewhere
to get to a particular point in time or a particular stage in a process
to get as high as a particular level or amount
to achieve something after discussing it or thinking about it for a long time 

With all that has gone on with Alice this year-and continues to evolve-I just haven't felt "Reach" has really fit me.

Then, yesterday, an email arrived from Christine Kane entitled "Hit the Re-Set Button on your Word of the Year".  I had used a resource that were free from Christine, her "Word of the Year Discovery Tool".

I knew it was time to change my word.  Three words have been popping in for 2014 have been patience, acceptance, and perseverance.

Acceptance: definition: "the action of consenting to receive or undertake something offered; the act of taking something that is offered". I have not had a choice in taking what is offered in 2014, it just happened!

Patience: Definition: The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset: Patience is the quality of waiting calmly without complaining.  I have not been patient or calm. I've been depressed and sad.

Perseverance: Definition: Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success

 I have been "keeping on keeping on".

So yes, perseverance is my Word for the rest of 2014.  I guess my "doing something" would be carrying on with my life in as normal matter as I can, with the life disruptions and setbacks that have been thrown at us.
