With January quickly approaching, I was reminded that I need to pick my word for 2010. The idea comes from ali edwards, one of my favorite all time creative people. She has picked her work for this year, which is STORY. Her words in past years are Nurture for 2009, Vitality for 2008, and Peace for 2007. (You can read her original post on "one little word" here.)
I picked my first word in 2008 after reading ali's blog. My word in 2008 was CREATIVE. I really wanted to focus my energy on being creative that year; in fact, starting a blog was part of that creative process.
As I started thinking about my word for 2010, and about writing about it on my blog, I was going to come up with a list of words I might consider. ali has people post words they are considering, so you can see all kinds of words that might resonate for you. But as I started to think of words to consider, one popped into my head, and I can't let it go. So, it will be my word for 2010.
My 'tag line' on my email signature at work is this phrase: "Be the change you wish to see in the world" by Gandhi. So the word change is important to me. And as I thought of 2010, I thought about my need to change my eating habits, to keep the weight off that I lost this year. And I also know I want to change the way I think about some things, like letting negative people zap my energy. So there was my word . . . one that I think will be important to me in 2010 . . . CHANGE.
I'm excited for that to be my word!
Hope you pick out 'one little word' for 2010 that will help your year be a great one!
I hope you all had a great Christmas. Mine was fabulous.
I'm still enjoying looking at my Christmas tree and all the decorations in my house. (No, the picture above is not of my tree; the picture is courtesy ofCountry Living. But I love the way this red & white looks in this picture!)
We also enjoyed watching our Chargerswin on Christmas night!
Next, we're cheering for a Super Bowl WIN by our San Diego SUPER-Chargers!!!
