New Year, New Word 2014

More information about the One Little Word meme can be found on Ali Edwards' blog.  My word for 2014 is FORWARD.  There are several ways to use this word, and it can be almost any particle of speech.  I like that about this word!  It's flexible and can be used in so many ways.  For the sake of this post, I'm only going to define the word as I see myself being able to use it.  (For example, although it can be a noun meaning a position in football, basketball and soccer, I'm not looking at FORWARD that way.)

Adverb Also, forwards.
  • toward or at a place, point, or time in advance; onward; ahead (to move forward; from this day forward; to look forward.)
  • toward the front (Let's move forward so we can hear better.)
  • into view or consideration; out; forth (He brought forward several good suggestions.)
  • ahead
  • directed toward a point in advance; moving ahead; onward (a forward motion.)
  • being in a condition of advancement; well-advanced (It was quite forward in the season when we finished our planting.)
  • ready, prompt, or eager.
  • presumptuous, impertinent, or bold (a rude, forward child.)
  • situated in the front or forepart (the forward part of the ship.)
Verb (used with object)
  • to send forward; transmit, especially to a new address (to forward a letter)
  • to advance or help onward; promote (The training will help to forward your career.)
I'm ready for my life to move ahead.  I have been separated since December 2012 but my divorce is not yet final.  I'm ready to move on past this failed marriage and on to something better. 
I have many projects that have been at the bottom of my to-do list for too long; it's time to either do them or abandon the idea entirely. 
I see a point in the near future where my priorities will be changing.  Diet and exercise must be put forth to the top of the list.  My very life depends on it.  I am well-advanced on this already, with having my gastric bypass, but life has been forever changed for me.  
I am ready and eager to be healthier (and smaller!) and I believe my self-confidence will improve to the point where I can be bold with sharing my ideas, thoughts and feelings with new people.  
(I have no plans to be rude, though.) 
I want to be situated in the front seat of my own life, to be in control and not so reactionary.  I want to promote myself in my life, in my community and socially as well.

I'm looking forward to 2014 in general.  Life has been good to me in the past year and my blessings have been abundant.  My gratitude is stronger than ever.  I am stronger than ever.  I'm ready for this year!
