One Little Word
My overall well being has taken a huge beating this year due to the enormous stress of it all, and 2012 is going to be forever known as the year that I put myself back together. I have spent a lot of time these past few days thinking about what my word for 2012 should be. I want a word that encompasses healing and starting over and making whole. I toyed with refresh and renew, and the the word I keep coming back to is REVIVE. Revive, is a verb that means to start again; bring back to life. Some of the synonyms of revive are: awake, bounce back, breathe new life into, brighten, come around, come to life, energize, enliven, exhilarate, gladden, invigorate, make whole, refresh, rejuvenate, rekindle, renew, restore, revitalize, and strengthen. All of the things that I want for myself this year. All things that so many areas of my life need. The things is, I already used this word back in 2009. I've given it a lot of thought, and I've decided that I don't care. It's my word, and I'm going to use it again. Besides, I don't think I did a good job of working it into my life in 2009. I started out good with it, and even made a cool project to go with it that you can see here, but that was about where it ended. I have far bigger plans for this word in 2012.
