i know 2012 is going to be amazing. don't ask me how, but i do. i know there are big things in store for us and lots and lots of happiness and adventures. with happiness comes sorrow and a slue of other emotions- and as 2012 embraces us with all it's challenges, we will embrace each day as the gifts they are.
while reflecting on 2011, i wasn't sure how i would approach 2012 and all the many things i hope to accomplish. i thought better of making a list of things to do this year (there will still be a list but probably in a different capacity) and decided on one little word. one word that will be my compass. one word that will guide me as i make decisions- big & small. one word that will improve me as a person, wife, friend, co-worker. one word i can reflect upon when everything falls into place or the goings get tough.
i've been chewing on this word for a while now & am excited to make it my own. that's the thing about words- everyone interprets them differently. and my interpretation is definitely going to be different than yours. & that's what makes this project so cool. as of today, here is what commitment means to me:
- committing only to things i have the time & resources for
- committing to optimism, joy & health
- following through on my commitments to myself and others
- commit to building the best life for my family
i'm not quite sure how i'll recap this word throughout my posts- but i will keep you updated this year. i'm excited to see how this word evolves for me and the endless benefits it will bring. do you have a word that will represent 2012 for you? if so, please share. i'd love to hear what the new year means to you.
happy, happy 2012!
