Why have plans?
Because without them, my good intentions will fail.
Why have goals?
Because with nothing specific to reach for, I can’t make action steps to get me to where I want to be at the end of this year.
And why have one word?
Because this one word sums up the one quality I want to weave into my 2013 plans and goals, all of which I want to see through to fulfillment this year.
My one word for 2013 is: Enrich.
For me, to “enrich” means to actively pursue those things which will enhance, add beauty to, and improve my life. This means taking better care of myself, not only health-wise, but in the other things that will help add beauty to my life. Things like taking up a new hobby, or maybe resurrecting an old one, like photography and poetry writing. It also means investing in myself, which I have always been iffy about doing, simply because I just didn’t give myself, my appearance, my body much thought.
By the end of 2013, I want to say that I have enriched myself this year. Call it a happiness project, or maybe a life list hit list. This year will be one of learning new things, of embracing new lessons (which will surely be a mix of hard and harder!), and of realizing new dreams. Maybe I’ll have to make some lifestyle edits here and there, but in the end, I want to come out refreshed, a little bit wiser, and a whole lot braver.
How about you? What’s your one word for 2013?
