Not nearly as easy as it sounds. Choosing one word to conjure an entire year’s worth of life. I suppose my word for 2010 would be: Beginning. After looking over the posts for 2010, I found myself beginning different things. Beginning running again after illness, beginning school, beginning a new job, beginning to see life through the eyes of a toddler. So, I suppose 2010 was sort of a rebirth for me and it seems to have been, for the most part, a good beginning to that rebirth. And, I am so very thankful for the lessons and attitudes from this year. I’m also mindful of the many things that I need to work on for the coming year.
Now, the word to describe 2011 a year from now…I can’t imagine. I suppose, given how well this year has gone from certain standpoints, I would like for the 2011 word to be: Sustain. Naturally, there are things I would love to reinvigorate, like running, and I’d like to shoot for new goals, but if I could simply sustain what has happened over the course of this year that would be a major accomplishment. I guess we’ll take a look back in a year or so and see if it happened.
See you in the funny papers!
