My word for 2010

Happy New Year and new decade! Whoot.

I know its Jan 6 .. lets just move on. :)

Finally back in the swing of things, it takes a while when you get used to holidays in your own house and to get back in the groove of getting something done.

Sarah is busy with volleyball on all nights and days this week and I am going to watch her tomorrow. Then her birthday dinner and dessert last night. She wanted trifle and when you live a long ways from the grocery store , sometimes you have to macgyver it! It turned out good tho.


There is a lot of talk about picking a word for the year going around and I have picked DECIDE.

(I was just gonna say I decided to pick.. irony??)

So why DECIDE?

I read this on artbiz blog and feel that this word found me.

Some of these are from the post and some are ones I added.

DECIDE that each day will be a good day and that I’ll be in a good mood. That’s right: I can decide.

DECIDE that I’ll sing, smile, laugh, and dance more often.

DECIDE to make this a rewarding year filled with things and people I love.

DECIDE to make art. Make a schedule and just create!

DECIDE to keep eating healthy and watch what I put in my body.

DECIDE to make the most of the time I have.

DECIDE to take risks.

And one last one of mine,

DECIDE what kind of life I want to live. One without shoulds, settlements or regrets. I have one life so LIVE it.

Here's to a great year and decade!

I chose that word for the same reason you did--I really like the first three decisions!!

Great decision. Those are all great reasons for picking the word. I wonder if people are picking words more this year because they are hoping to have more hope, control and good things come from this year over last. Like you have written here, there are some things we get to decide and how we are going to go through the year is one of them.
