On Words & Resolutions

Have you read how some people choose a word to represent or motivate their year? Well, I wasn't really thinking about choosing one for myself....in fact, if I really think about it....this word chose me. What I mean is that all the days and months leading up to this new year have brought me to this place and this feeling {this word}. This past year, I have been stretched......knocked down....spun around....and placed back on my feet again.

Y'know what always makes me nervous about resolutions or choosing a "word"? I almost feel like it's setting myself up for failure. It seems that as soon as I would say I plan to do such and such....the plans get sabotaged {or I sabotage them}. I have thought of words in past years only to quickly forget the chosen word by February. In fact, I know I chose a word last year, but couldn't even begin to tell you what it was.

I do hope my word retention will be better this year. I have a few resolutions stored in my heart. I think I will slowly reveal them to you, my friends, as time goes on. You do remember that I wear my heart on my sleeve, right? Well, I can tell you that it's still there. So, how did I come up with my word? I don't know if it's the spring like weather we've been having, or the rearranging and purging I've been doing, but I can almost feel my word...

                                                             Fresh

There it is. I've felt like I've not fully been myself for almost 2 years now {since the big move}. I'm hoping this feeling of being re-freshed will last longer than February.
                                                         fresh perspective
                                                         fresh organizing skills
                                                         fresh attitude
                                                         fresh hopes
                                                         fresh recipes
                                                         fresh .......I could go on and on........

I never knew about the word-choosing thing.
Is it just as cool to go back and name a year?
Would I end up naming them all the same thing?

I like fresh. Makes me think of clean laundry. I am all about clean laundry.

Makes me think of clean laundry, too. LOL!

As for naming the years....yeah, I'd probably end up naming them all the same without realizing it :)
