When I started blogging a few years ago, being the goal-oriented, resolution-setter that I am, I was intrigued with the idea - floating around the blogosphere - of choosing a "word of the year". A word that would basically encompass my goals and define what I was striving to do or become during the year.
Because I am so passionate in my belief that goal-setting is a powerful tool for creating success and happiness in one's life, I take the task of picking a "word of the year" very seriously.
For the past year and a half (since my hubby's horrific car accident) our little family has had its share of ups and downs, especially as we have struggled to get back on our feet - emotionally, financially and otherwise. So this year, now that life has settled into what I feel is our new normal, I have high hopes and expectations of what I want each of us to accomplish. And so I have chosen as my word for 2012...
I want each member of my family, but most especially myself, to put our whole-hearted effort into each and every worthy endeavor that we involve ourselves in this year. I want us to challenge ourselves. After all, we can do hard things. And I want to be sure that we try new things, that we embrace the opportunities that come our way.
|Our 2012 Motto|
If you'd like, you can check out my previous words of the year here (2009) and here (2011). (not sure why I didn't post it in 2010.)
What about you? Do you have a word of the year?
