If you aren't familiar with the concept of choosing one little word to focus on throughout the year, I suggest you read this.
In 2011 I chose AUTHENTIC as the word to guide me through the year. As something to work on, to improve, as a touchstone that I am where and who I want to be, or at least heading in the right direction.
It is easy to determine success in blogging, journaling and scrapbooking - I have realised my own scrapbooking style and this blog, now 18 months old, truly feels like my little home of the web - but I also believe 'be authentic' has influenced me in other more important and unquantifiable ways.
Authenticity is something I will continue to strive for.
For 2012 I have chosen a new word:
Verb: To take up willingly or eagerly. To avail oneself of.
Embrace moments and experiences.
