One-word resolution: what's yours this year?


Gretchen Rubin from the Happiness Project just shared a great video about creating a one-word theme for the year. By setting your attention to one word as a guide for 2011, you can easily measure up what you are doing currently against how it fits this word. It can also be a great motivator - using your word is a mantra can help you smack yourself out of complacency and bad behavior.

My word for 2011: consistency. Each one of my goals boils down to this one concept - being consistent - and I know that when I'd rather get eat my way through a box of donuts or skip sewing to watch TV it will help keep me focused.

What's your one-word resolution?

hmmmm...this is really hard! I think my word for 2011 will be EXCEL. But not EXCEL in the pressurized version of the word but in the good sort of challenge type of word. I would have used CHALLENGE but it can have some negative connotations. Basically I want to really push my boundaries this year (but in a safe and fun environment), does that make sense? I'd like to step out of the box a bit and see what kind of stuff I can get up to! :-)

I totally feel you on the challenge/excel/step out of the box goal - it's important to try new things and I think we all get to a place where it's difficult to make ourselves get outside of our comfort zone.

Great words people!!

Learn.

Actually, I lied. I think I'm gonna go with:

Confidence.

Being a perfectionist kind of blows - because you live in constant terror someone won't think you're perfect. (Which of course, no one is.) I need to work on having the confidence to compete against *myself - and not worry so much about how it looks to others.

OK, the capcha on that last comment was "blerses." I want this to be a real word.

Manifest.

Manifest a healthy lifestyle and the intentions for the life that I want. Bring into being. Create.

Blerses! It's like "blerg" and "curses" had a baby. And the baby was blerses.

These words are great - I was just told to manifest something the other day! Love it!

Forgiveness.... forgive myself for not being the perfect mom and for all the mistakes I make along the way. Damn this is harder than I ever thought it would be.
