Here it is, 2011. I have made my most hilarious joke about where our hover cars are (totally original, I know I am the only one who thought of it!) and am settling into this new year that is so full of promise and hopefully, a healthy dose of badass. ;-) I love this feeling.
Last year, I started the practice of choosing a word for the year. It was a new concept for me, but I know it’s been around for a while. I liked it and I am going to try it again this year. I struggled with which word to select, which harkens back to my “which one will be perfect” tendencies, but I think I have chosen one that suits my hopes and maybe even my dreams. This year, my word is illumination.
I have a few reasons for selecting this particular word over my other choice (which was abundance– although if we can have 2, I’ll accept that one too) and once I had thought of it, it seemed pretty fitting. I like the idea of this being a year of answers to my many, many, questions. I feel like I have been groping around in the dark for a while, I am ready to let some light in. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
Do you have a word for 2011? What are your hopes and wishes and dreams for this shiny new year?
Wishing you a wonderful new year, may it bring us all of our true hearts’ desires, even the ones we didn’t know we had!
