It’s “pick your word” time. It seems like every other blog post or Facebook post is asking the question: what is your one word for 2012? Honestly, I’m reluctant to play along. Two years ago everyone was doing vision boards. I resisted as long as I could but eventually gave in to the pressure. I found a jillion old magazines at the used book store (which they were happy to give me) and spent a few fun hours cutting and pasting. However, it wasn’t long before my little project started collecting dust. Occasionally it would draw my eye and I’d longingly look at the picture of the spa vacation or remodeled kitchen. But for the most part, this was not anything I felt kinship to. Does that mean I’m not a visionary, or not a visual person, or just someone not driven to achieve the goals pasted on a poster board?
In 2012 I’m buckling to the peer pressure once again by choosing “my one word.” The choices have been tumbling around in my head for days. What feels right: Excellence, Power, Focus, Happy, Growth, Fun, Family, Time Management – can I even choose two words? What are the rules anyway…? What if I choose the wrong word? What happens if I don’t like my word in a couple of months? What do I do to make sure that word has significant meaning in my life? Oh…all the what if’s!
Happily, I’ve chosen my one word. It suits both my business and family life. What more can a girl ask for? It will look good made up in a Pinterest type of sign, too. (except mine will be one you can read and understand. What is this sign saying anyway?)
If you are playing along this year, leave me some New Year’s love. What is your One Word? I’ll share mine in the next post…!
