One Little Word :: 2013

Last year I agonized over my OLW - it took me what felt like forever to choose Happiness as my word. But it served me well in 2012, I felt like I used it as a guiding principle and it really did change the choices I made. I looked at what made me truly feel fulfilled and content. I realized that the proverbial cup is always half empty AND half full at the same time - you have to choose which half you focus on. I've come to realize that happiness, true happiness is a wonderful compass to live your life by. It's a word that has become a foundation for me and I don't feel like I'm through with it as much as I'm building on it.

After how hard it was to choose for 2012 I started thinking maybe in September or even August what my word would be for 2013, and in came in an instant "your word for 2013 is going to be climb" a little whisper in my soul. What? Seriously? "Climb", really? I am not someone who as ever looked at a mountain and thought "I need to climb that". I'm afraid of heights for crying out loud! But still, there it was and it felt right. Feels right. I'm trying to let go of the need to rationalize it or even understand it. I'm just trying to be open to the climb this year and see where it leads me.

"You're off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So...get on your way!"

Dr. Seuss
