Its 2012, a new year, time for a fresh start. This article from the blog Ordinary Courage got me thinking this week.
It’s about an initiative called ‘One Little Word’ where you define one word that will be yours for 2012.
‘Can you identify a single word that sums up what you want for yourself in 2012? It can be something tangible or intangible. It could be a thought, or a feeling, or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something that has personal meaning for you. This is not your mother’s word or your spouse’s word or your child’s word – this is YOUR word.’
I liked the idea of striving for happiness through the simplicity of focusing on a single word objective.
My word for 2012 came to me this morning.
The last few years have been curious, which is good but unsettled, I’ve started lots of things, tried lots of things out and haven’t always seen them through, invested enough time or been disciplined enough to get the full potential out.
I want 2012 to be the year that I do stick it out. In relation to career, projects, sport, relationships, family time, catching up with people when I say I will and even finishing clearing up after mealtimes or hanging my washing up after its done. Staying curious , but focused on what I want to achieve.
So that’s my word – what’s yours?
