This will be my third year with a ‘word.’ It sounds funny to say it like that, but there it is, my WORD.
Sure, there are things I want to achieve this year — more like the standard resolutions — but the word thing has really worked for me over the past two years, so I’m going to stick with it.
I always have a lot of things going on in this head of mine, so the beauty of a word is that it’s easy, small enough to remember yet broad enough to be applicable to many aspects of my life.
This year, I want to simplify my schedule,
simplify my record keeping,
simplify my belongings,
simplify my menu,
simplify my work,
simplify my overall objectives in life.
It’s a good word for me.
My husband and I are both feeling intensely optimistic about twentytwelve. It’s going to be a great year. If I simplify where I can, I will minimize some of the peripheral distractions in order to move forward more resolutely,
with what really matters.
Happy New Year to all!
