My Word of the Year

Do you choose a word for the year? Ali Edwards shared her new word for this year on her blog this week & you can go to her blog to find out more about how she started this tradition. She also links up to a Free Download "Word of the Year Discovery tool." from blogger Christine Kane. It's a worksheet for thinking through your word and essentially telling the story of your word.I am going to check this out! I think this will be a good Sunday activity for me tomorrow. Last year I had thought about choosing a word but then I never got around to it - so maybe my word last year was procrastination LOL. I chose a word for this year though. My word for this year is PROGRESS. I know better from years past than to expect perfection in the goals I set for myself each new year. As I stated before, I usually bite off more than I can chew and I get discouraged when I fall short of the goals I wanted to accomplish. I prefer to look at my goals as a work in progress instead. I want to give myself credit for even small steps in the right direction. I think that if I can just look back at the end of the year and see that I have made progress that it should be enough. Here's to a year of progress!
