But then I really struggled to pick a word. And I read a few other blogs where bloggers picked some great words like perspective or fun. And I thought damn, those are good words. I want more perspective and fun in 2013 too, why didn't I think of those. But really neither of those words were my word.
2012 was hectic and filled with more change and chaos than my brain is good at comprehending. So in 2013 I find myself wanting quiet and calm. I want my new house to start feeling like a home. I want comfort and familiarity. So my word for 2013 is,
I like the way it sounds. I like that content means comfortable, fulfilled and gratified.
This year i want to be happy with all that I have and not focus on what I don't. I want to see the big picture and realize that some things are like my son refusing to eat dinner aren't worth me getting bent out of shape. I want to hold on to happy moments and keep them in focus.
I don't want to rush through 2013. I want to enjoy it. I want to fill it with things that bring me happiness, that keep me balanced and feeling content.
And if something doesn't bring those things to my life. If it causes me stress, sadness or derails my plans then maybe it has no place in my life.
I'm going to focus on being content this year. And if it means that my calender is less full then that is OK.
What is your word for 2013?
