On my word for 2012 ...
My favorite FLY quotes:
Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as you will. - Aiden Wilson Tozer-
Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly. - Julie Andrews-
Definition: to take to the air usually employing wings, to move through the air, to be carried through the air by wind or any force, to float or flutter in the air, to travel in an aircraft, to move suddenly or quickly, to change rapidly and unexpectedly from one state or position to another, to move or pass swiftly, to operate, to resist, to rush out, to burst into passion.
These are my favorite definitions for the word fly (found on dictionary.com and the 1828 Webster's dictionary). To resist was by far the most surprising definition (I'm interested in what I will be resisting this year) and to "burst into a passion" was also very interesting to me.
This year by choosing the word fly I am inviting: freedom, opportunity, new challenges, faith, growth, rest, passion, life, love, joy, and change. Looking forward to seeing how the journey that this new year and this new word bring.
