My Word for 2011



So many of you have inspired me with your words and posts for the year that I cannot help but jump on the bandwagon and choose a word for 2011. For me choosing a word creates a vision for the next year and something to focus on. I can see a path before me. It isn't a resolution but more of a state of mind to work towards. There are so many wishes, hopes and words I have swimming through my head for the year ahead but the word that holds the most meaning for me right now is Laughter.  The beginning of last year was all about health issues, relationship issues and self isolation for me. Then I started to emerge. I was creative, I learned, I grew, I shared and I learned to let love in again. I did not choose a word to focus on for 2010 but I think the word found me: Grow.

I want my focus for this year to be about living life and having fun. Far too often I am stoic and often the laughter never comes. I want to find a way for it to come bubbling out readily and easily. I need to be less self conscious and more free. I need to let the laughter come. I want to foster more intimate relationships. I want to explore and discover new ways to live life fully. I want to continue on the path to being a happier mother, wife and friend. These are the wishes I am quietly sending off in the wind for 2011.

What is your word?
