Looking Ahead: 2014′s ‘One Word’

by Nursetopia on January 1, 2014

2014 is no exception to my one word tradition. I started thinking about my one word for the year two weeks ago. It didn’t take me long at all to find the word because I have known for a while what I have missed for a few months now – likely because of my recent move to a new city.

2014Relationships. 

In 2014, “relationships” will be my focus – in every sense of the word. I want to focus on my children, my husband, my siblings, my parents, my extended family, my friends, my team, my coworkers, my Lord. I want people to be my priority in words and actions. I want to have more lunches with friends, more phone calls with family, more cuddles (without technology in front of me), more talks, more walks, more letters, more stolen moments, more frozen moments, just more moments.

I’m really looking forward to 2014. Happy New Year!

Awesome word, Joni. And don’t forget about the relationship with yourself. :- ) I know from experience, as I am sure you being a nurse can relate to- when we take care of ourselves and spend time with us- we can best enjoy the relationships of those we love. I admire your commitment to your 2014 word and am happily awaiting hearing how it goes as we watch your journey on this blog! Enjoy your health today, Elizabeth

Probably the best choice! A nurse is faced with high level of stress and strain while on shift that a comfy sofa and loving hugs and kisses from your loved ones is a great way to relieve your hard days shift. Relationship plays a vital role on keeping you rolling with your nursing profession. It’s a tough job and we all know.Probably the best choice!
