I am … {2/52}

2012 will be the third year in a row that I haven’t made a single New Year’s Resolution.

Nope, not a one.

The concept of One Little Word grabbed me a few years back and since then, it’s become a way of life. And a perfect way to start the year.

In 2010, I chose the word true. It was a year of change and growth for me, and of staying true to myself.

Last year, I chose the word focus and look what came out of that – hellooooo focus52! Although the year started out with a different view of my word than how it actually played out, you guys know there were a hell of a lot of moments when I had to just stand still, breathe and focus.

This year, my One Little Word for 2012 …

I am ...


Because I need to be.
Because I want to be.
Because I absolutely have to be.

Because I AM.

Do you have a word for 2012? Share!


2012! are you in?

    Ya you are! You’re strong not because you NEED to be, but because it’s inherent in you.
