A Word for the Year

Happy New Year!
I hope January 2012 has
gotten off to a great start
for everyone. I am still
somewhat adjusting but
all in all things are going
well. Had to go back to
school today! Winter break
is over.
Bummer!
As you see in the photo, I
have a word. BELIEVE-that
is my word for the year. My
favorite author started me
thinking about this then one
of the local news teams talked
about it and I have seen it on a
couple of blogs. After much
thinking and mulling, mulling
and thinking I chose the word
BELIEVE.
I will be the first to admit that
I can be a little on the negative
and see the glass half empty. I
work very hard at keeping those
around me "pumped" up that I
forget myself.
SO......
I believe I can be more positive.
I believe that bumps in the road
will be less rocky.
I believe that I WILL focus more
on myself this year.
I believe that I will get more
accomplished this year.
I believe.....
Do you have a word for this year?
~Keep on Dreaming~

  8. Love that idea Melinda. My word would have to be "Enjoy". Enjoy life, enjoy my family, enjoy my work, enjoy my hobbies.
    Believe is a good one.
