one little word

This is where 'one little word' all started.

Ali Edwards had the idea to pick one word that summed up what she wanted for herself in the next year. It is an idea that a lot of people have embraced and I have decided to become one of them.

For 2010, I have chosen the word ..


participate; verb; to take part, be or become actively involved, or share (in)

Some of the reasons I chose this word:
  • I want to participate more in my children's day-to-day lives; be more present and available to them instead of being off in my own little world.
  • I want to participate in new activities that take me outside my comfort zone ... like cleaning the house more regularly .. lol!
  • I want to participate in the activities that bring me pleasure and fulfilment without feeling guilty or that I'm not good enough.
  • I want to participate in a healthier lifestyle and all that entails.
  • I want to participate more in activities that interest the important people in my life .. even if they don't particularly interest me.
  • I want to make myself participate more in my own life instead of just watching it fly by.
So what do you think your word is?

Great word choice! Hmm. Nah, I'll stick with focus. But participate is in the running for next year, for sure!
