One Little Word - 2011

Over the past years I have played along to {{Ali Edwards'}} idea to focus on just one word for the year ahead, to make it your motto and try to live by it. Additionally I also scrapped a page using my word to remind myself throughout the year

I started in 2008 and chose MODERATION, as I was living it large the years before. It was time for me to pull the brakes and start living sensibly

In 2009 my chosen word was POSITIVITY, after I read the book {{the Secret}}, I knew I would enjoy my life much more with a positive outlook - and it worked!

For 2010 I went with the word DETERMINATION as I had so many plans and so many goals I wanted to achieve. I have been determined, all right but not to the extend I wanted to be. Probably because during the year I had forgotten about my word and just plodded along...proof of that is that I never even created a layout for my word until now....sheesh

So, in anticipation for 2011 my chosen word is: THANKFUL. There should be no worrying over things that I cannot change, no crying over spilled milk. Just to embrace each days and be happy that I am alive, loved and  in the wonderful position to be able to speak my mind.

Here's to a happy 2011!
