One word resolutions
Has everyone seen this yet?
I really like the idea. I generally do not bother with making resolutions. Who needs to add guilt into the mix of all that comes your way with everyday living?
If 2009 taught me *anything* is that you really never do know what is going to come your way in the course of a year.
Without intent the word that describes last year for me was "survive." I spent better than 80% in pure survival mode. Don't think about anything, just do what it takes to get through to the next day. To get us ALL through to the next day. And the shit? Well, it kept rolling down the hill for us, but we survived.
Here we are on the other side of shit hill and I am sincerely hoping that 2010 is going to be a return to normal for us. Time to be enjoy, time to be quiet, time to reflect, time to relax.
BUT, I can never know what is coming can I? We will certainly face challenges - still trying to have another baby, Jack will be starting kindergarten, owning our own home for the first time, etc.
I think my word for this year will be "release".
Of all the words on that list it is the one that calls to me whenever I sit down to ponder this project.
What will your word be?
Whatever you choose, Happy New Year to you. (And a bit of good riddance to bad rubbish for 2009!)
