Any of you choose a word of the year? I believe it was Ali Edwards who started this trend and it sure has caught fire. Seems to me that choosing a word is actually more popular than making resolutions!
Last year's word was Be. Just be at home with myself. Realize that contentment is good. The blessings I have are wonderful and are more than enough. That led to the creation of this layout, which still remains one of my favorites from 2009:
I really tried to remember that wish all throughout this year. It seemed to work most of the time!
To continue that pursuit, I have decided on the word Balance for the 2010 year! I want to make priorities, learn how to say no to things that aren't right and yes to things that yield a greater good. I want to spend enough quality time with Steve and the kids, to embrace every second we have as a family.
Along with that, I need to honor me. I need to scrap, to exercise, to have time with the girls. I need to drink more water and have less coffee. I know that I can do it, finding my way to balance. I think it will lead to an even greater sense of serenity!
It will lead to a happy me. I don't have a layout with this word yet...but this one is close to conveying my happiness. I scrapped this one for an issue of Scrapstreet, using the phrase, "How Can You Not?"
So here begins the pursuit of balance. An attempt to stay more even and remember what is most important!
How about you...what's your 2010 word?
