My Word of the Year for 2014

I know that FIT is not a glamorous or trendy word.  However, it does describe the kind of year and direction I want to go in.  For my chosen path it's perfect.

I suppose that most people will think about being physically fit and it is surely that, but for me so much more.  I want to feel my life fits me.  The things that I do and the time that I take/spend truly fit me.

I love this quote, "The thought manifests the word, the word manifests the deed, the deed develops into habit and the habit hardens into character."  Buddha.
