I love the fact that Ali Edwards has inspired so many people to pick a word to live by for a year. I also love joining in and picking a word that will mean something to me in the 12 months to follow. I have been giving a lot of thought to what my word for 2010 should be. My word for 2009 was LIVE and it served well to remind me to stop and live in the moment...to stop and enjoy the little things and not rush through life in a whirl. I look back on 2009 and realized it made quite the difference in how I did things, even those mudane daily things...I feel as though I did live 2009 and am looking foward to 2010. Lots of things happened in 2009, some good, some bad and some very sad, but through it all I kept my word close to my heart and remembered.
I have narrowed the search down to a few words for 2010...one being BREATHE. Sometimes I still feel like I am going through life holding my breath so to speak...I need to relax and remember to breathe it in.
Another word that might work is EMBRACE...I like the way it kind of goes along with live, reminding me to embrace not only the fun things that come along but the everyday...
And my last choice was BRAVE...life sometimes gets difficult and I would like to keep in my heart that I am brave and I can get through anything that life throws at me. All things happen for a reason (even when we can't wrap our minds around whatever it might be) and I need to work on facing things head on. Not letting things or situations get the best of me.
After much thought and deliberation I have decided the word for me this coming year will be BREATHE...I feel like this word wraps all three of my choices into one word. I am committed to making 2010 the best, most amazing year yet, I will breathe it all in, the good, the bad, all of it. I will stop and breathe and enjoy.
Have you picked your word yet??? Let me know if you have and what your word is!
