It's taken me a little while to decide on it. My initial thought was to choose the word patience, because I feel that is a trait I need to work on. However, I finally decided that there is another word out there that really speaks to me right now. One that moves me. One that I need right now. And while patience is something that I want to strive for, I think there is something more inside of me right now that needs urging. So, in the New Year, I will am going to spend my time focusing on the word . . .
1: to bring into existence
2 a: to invest with a new form, office or rank > b: to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior
3: cause, occasion
4 a: to produce through imaginative skill > b: design
What a word! I have this feeling inside that I am going to try and unleash in 2010. I have these dreams and ideas that I want to grow. I want to create art. I want to create stories. I want to create photographs. I want to create wonderful spaces where my children can play and dream and grow and thrive. I want to create paintings that will inspire others. I want to create sentences, one after another, that will make people smile and laugh out loud. I want to create delicious meals and yummy desserts. I want to create adventures and experiences I've never had before. I want to create a home filled with laughter and peace, an environment that welcomes strangers and encourages friendships. I want to create. All year long.
So, My Word for 2010. CREATE.
And I hope to share my journey with you. We'll have much fun together. Happy New Year, dear friend! May we all create a Wonderful Year for ourselves!
