Over the last year, I’ve read many blogs — wonderful, inspiring, fun blogs. I remember coming across some that mentioned a word that they had focused on during the year. It may have been peace or health or creativity. I don’t remember the words picked by each of the people I had come across and it honestly doesn’t matter because they were personal to each of the people who picked them out. To be honest, I don’t even remember which blogs I read about the words on. I wish I did. I’ve tried to find them recently to see if they were talking about a word for next year. I couldn’t.
I’ve been thinking about my own word. You see, I’m about to turn 51 years old in a few days. I no longer do New Year’s resolutions and as much as I love a list of goals that I’d love to accomplish in the coming year, even those feel a little weighty to me lately. So the idea of a word to focus my life around seems more my speed.
The word that I’ve picked is ORDER! I want more order in my life. I want to get my life in order. I want to bring order to my little etsy business. I guess I don’t feel that I have as much control as I should and order will give it back to me. So, that is what I’ll be working on in the coming year. Order in my life. Hopefully, by 2012 I will feel that I have more order and have accomplished what I set out to do. Is there one word that you want to work on in your own life?
