one word

have you heard of this: one word 365? this is what the site has to say about this:

"It becomes the filter through which you see and live your life. It steers your decisions and guides your steps."

"It can be something tangible or intangible. It can be a thought or a feeling or an action. It can be a character trait or an accomplishment or a place you want to end up.
A word that can be a reminder, a nudge. A word that you can reflect on, that will challenge you, that will inspire you."

after thinking about it for a bit i think my word for 2012 is going to be: grateful.

i actually had a nudge toward this word when reading something earlier this week. i can't find the link now but the woman's goal was to write a thank you note to someone every day. while i want a goal to push me i don't want checking the goal off a list to become more important than the goal, so rather than a note a day i'm going to do one thing a week that shows someone in my life how grateful i am for them. if i do more, terrific! but, i won't be doing the thing to just be doing it. by only focusing on one a week i can really put thought in to it, and make it personal.

so in 2012 i will be grateful. for every person and thing i have in my life. i'm not going to list every thing i do here on the blog but from time to time i will post to keep myself accountable.

so what will your word for 2012 be?

That's so funny, Amber, because as I was reading the first portion of your blog post I was thinking what word and I knew it was Gratitude. We're on the same page. It's nice to meet you :).
