In 2010 I posted this. My word was "nurture". I loved it. I felt like it was the perfect word for where I was then.
In 2011 I posted this. My word was "commit". I wanted it to be an extension of the year before. It flowed perfectly. I feel like I was able to do the things that I wanted to do.
This year, I find myself building off of the word from last year again. I want to just focus a little more on the important things and release myself from others. I want to provide quality instead of quantity. I want to encourage my kids imaginations and do less "stuff".
I want them to know what really matters.
We started this pre-Christmas and I want to continue the trend throughout the coming year.
This year my word is
I want to simplify everything.
I feel so overwhelmed at times with schedules, events, and commitments.
Overwhelmed by the stuff, the house, the drama, the constant upkeep of the unnecessary.
I want to clear out, manage, and eliminate things that are not precious. Things that are not loved.
I want to focus on the journey. I want to be present and undistracted.
Here is to the new year, 2012! Hopefully this new year will bring amazing experiences and lots of fond memories.
