What Is My Word?

I have decided to use a workbook in order to direct my life in a more positive way.  The first thing the workbook wants is a word that I will relate to during 2017.  This word is to direct me, inspire me and help me achieve a happy, shining life.  That is a great deal of importance placed on this one word.  So what word should I pick?

The journal says I should ask myself the following two questions.

  1.  What do I need more of?
  2.  What do I need less of?

The second question is easier to answer.  I need less stress.  I am worried about everything. I’m worried about my finances, I’m worried about my children, I’m worried about my house falling apart, I’m worried about my health, I’m worried about my business.  I have panic attacks where my heart pounds and I can’t breathe because the pressure across my chest is so intense.  This even happens while I’m sleeping!  And sleeping … I wish I could sleep a peaceful sleep.  I toss and turn and no longer dream.  I would love to sleep normally again.

So what do I need more of?  I would like to have more time with my children one on one.  With the phones put away and attention spent on each other.  I need to get back into a creative mode, where I produce something.  I waste so much time playing silly online games.  I need more balance in my life where I take care of myself, my children, my home and my finances/business.

I have narrowed my word list down to five words:  Believe, restore, build, explore and nourish. Which one should I pick?
