Theme-Word for the Year

Its that time of the year when people "find a word" for the year.
I think its a great idea to have a theme - a word that encapsulates where we hope to go

I have landed on "Embrace"

I may have used this one before but you know what?
It doesn't matter -
It fits the way I feel about this year too.

I want to embrace life with all its ups and downs -
I want to embrace the way I'm wired instead of mourning the way I'm not wired
I want to embrace my talents, instead of being mindful of their imperfections.
I want to embrace opportunities that come up.

Do you have a theme-word for this year?

Great word!! I like it! I also quite like the idea of a word in place in place of a NY resolution.... or is it a resolution?

Am choosing to think not!

I chose 'more' - more fun, more creating, more tea, more long walks, more (which means I also choose the word 'less' as a default).

This is a word that suits you well...and I know that you had it before.

My word for this year is Simplify...and with it comes declutter and organise.

@ lg - it
s starting to feel a bit like a resolution but I'm hoping that will change soon :-)
@ Rambler - hi stranger, so good to hear from you!! MOre is goooood!
@ Lynette - perhaps I should adopt it as a permanent word!? Simplify is also always a great idea. Clutter slows us down.
@ Cat - great minds, hey!! Good luck with your embracings this year :-)

My word of the year is "do"

Not to do more, but to really "do" something to the best of my ability, to go through all the steps in a process and to love "do"ing it.

@ OL - I really like that.
DO
Follow through
Get the whole thing accomplished.

Its a word with "teeth" if you know what I mean?
Good luck with it.

And good luck to all of us as we move through the year with these intentions and hopes.
:-)
