After recently reading a blog post on Busy House Big Heart about a One Word Challenge and the reasons for her choice word, a word sprung up into my mind.
The word was still with me.
I went back to the post to click some of the links included, to see what it was all about, and found this, the motive behind the word.
What do you want to focus on in 2013?
It can be something tangible or intangible. It can be a thought, a feeling, an action, or a character trait. Your word will be a reminder, a nudge. Something you can reflect on, that will challenge you, that will inspire you.
Your word can be anything you want it to be. All that matters is that it has personal meaning for you.
This is your word. It needs to resonate with your heart, no one else’s.

To Live is the reason my little family moved to the other side of the world. To LIVE, grow and shine in the sun.For good measure, I did a dictionary look up. Here’s what Dictionary.com says:
1. to have life, as an organism; be alive; be capable of vital functions: all things that live.2. to continue to have life; remain alive: to live to a ripe old age.3. to continue in existence, operation, memory, etc.; last: a book that lives in my memory.4. to maintain or support one’s existence; provide for oneself: to live on one’s income.5. to feed or subsist (usually followed by on or upon ): to live on rice and bananas.6. to dwell or reside (usually followed by in, at, etc.): to live in a cottage.7. to pass life in a specified manner: They lived happily ever after.8. to direct or regulate one’s life: to live by the golden rule.9. to experience or enjoy life to the full: At 40 she was just beginning to live.10. to cohabit (usually followed by with ).
