"to apply oneself to improving or developing"
Last year I was introduced to the idea of choosing a word and applying it to the year, using the word to motivate and guide me through out the year. In 2012 my word was New Beginnings click here to read more I had many new beginnings.
This year my word is cultivate. You may associate the word with farming and agriculture and that's OK. My creative journey, as well as my life, and farming have a lot a similarities. The definition I am referring to is "to apply oneself to improving and developing". All the seeds I planted, all the new beginnings I have started, I am ready to tend to them and develop them. It feels calmly exciting!
