2010 Word of the Year
I have something to share with you. I'm going to let go of any attempt to act cool about it, and just be honest and tell you that I'm having a moment. A "jumping up and down, life just gave me a gift, the world rocks right now" moment. You see, I've been following Christine Kane's blog for years. Her words motivate and often guide me. It was because of this post that I made a vision board last January. Posts like this have helped me when I'm feeling stuck. And this one? Don't even get me started. The woman just knows what she's talking about.
Case in point? Last year, Christine suggested her readers pick a word for the year, as a way of setting their intention. In December of 2009, she posted her readers' stories. They wrote in about the words they had chosen, and the paths their lives had taken. Reading all their stories, I was inspired to choose my own word. I didn't tell anyone this, but my secret hope was that somehow my word would lead me to a happier place and then next year I would be one of those people writing about my story on Christine's blog.
It's not such a secret anymore, is it? I was never good at keeping secrets anyway.
I struggled with whether to write this and put it out there for everyone to read. But the words wanted to be written. My story is now on Christine Kane's blog. And you can read about how one simple word can change everything.
