Word of the Year.  Do you have one for 2012?  After much pondering over the last week — a quiet and restful one, mostly — I have decided my word is


It’s not about control.  I want to be doing things with a purpose and focus.  I don’t want to get to the end of each day with regret for wasted time.  Not that I want to a workaholic maniac.  But if I’m playing with Peter, that’s what I want to be doing, not thinking about the laundry.  If I’m watching a movie, I don’t want to be on the laptop, unless I’m on IMDB because I’m watching the movie.  If I’m eating lunch, isn’t that enough?

Do you set resolutions?  That was part of the sermon this morning.  (And may I say, again, what a great thing it is to start the new year with worship?  Wow.)  I have some goals for this year, ones that I should be able to achieve with my WOTY.  Work, recreation, paper crafting, all kinds of activities — I am planning and scheduling those so they get the attention they deserve.

What are you doing New Year’s Day … and beyond?

  1. I like your word. For me it’s so easy to get distracted. My excuse is four children. Some things I can control, some I can’t. It’s can be so easy to waste time. And it’s something one never gets back. Happy New Year!

    My word is Balance. This is both physical and mental. I need to improve my balance standing on one leg (left is much much weaker). I also need to improve my work/fun balance. I also need to improve on my tendency to have two speeds – stop and go – either I’m working like a maniac or sitting in front of the tv doing nothing.
