In a Word - 2014

I read quite a few one word posts last January, but never felt really inspired to seek my own word.  This year, as I saw it coming up in posts again, I felt led to discover my word for 2014.  While quite a few words occurred to me initially, within a few days, one word was coming up again and again -- healthy.

I really like World Health Organizations' definition of health - Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.   Taking that to the adjective of healthy I define it as having complete physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being. And I love some of the synonyms or related words for healthy - flourishing, considerable, well, thriving.  

Right now, I see it as a theme in three main areas - a healthy body (food choices, physical activity, sleep), healthy relationships (time with God, time with family, time for others), and healthy finances (living on the budget we set each month and making wise choices with what God has provided).  But, I also know that God has His own plans and I look forward to seeing where He takes me this year.
