2012 was a year with its own set of challenges. I'll be honest, it was quite a difficult year for me. But through the challenges, I was impressed with a very important fact. Although we can't choose what happens to us, we are 100% in control of how we react to it. Our circumstances are not always within our control, but our attitudes are.
So this year, I have chosen the word BLOOM as my 2013 word of the year.
I have decided that this year I am going to choose to be positive. I am going to choose to be happy. I am going to proactive in creating an atmosphere of joy and contentment in my home. I want my children to grow up being grateful for their blessings.
This year I want to celebrate the many wonderful, small moments that happen on a daily basis. I want to make myself continually aware of the beauties of my life. This year I want to bloom.

Have a great day~
