So, without further adieu, my word. (drum roll, please)
Ok y'all. It's INVEST.
Welp. I actually thought that. I mean, I knew when it popped into my head what it was. I can't lie, I was slightly disappointed. What a cold sounding word. And it's all about money, isn't it? Ugh. A whole year devoted to money??? Where was my soul bending word? My profound and meaningful syllables? The word that makes me go "Ooooooooooo"?
Then I looked it up.
Oh....hello. Here's what it means:
to array in the symbols of office or honor, to furnish with power or authority, to grant someone control over, to cover completely: envelop, clothe, adorn, to endow with a quality: infuse
: to commit (money) in order to earn a financial return (One of my biggest goals this year is getting our finances under control, to stop wasting so much money on useless things. Not drinking will be a HUGE help for that.)
: to make use of for future benefits or advantages <invested her time wisely> (Again, not drinking has been a great way to actually spend my time)
: to involve or engage especially emotionally <were deeply invested in their children's lives> (Once again, sobriety is already making me a better wife and mother)
Invest. My word. It makes cents. (ha ha, a little financial humor there. Already working the power of my word. *cocky head bob thing*) But seriously. What a great little word. It says all the stuff I want to accomplish this year. In a really good way.
