"A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow."
Laurie over at Tip Junkie issued a challenge to "identify a single word that sums up what you want for yourself in 2009?"I really thought it was a good idea. For the past couple of years I have been out of the resolution mode.... I always seem to disappoint myself when I fail at another resolution. So as I celebrate new years I leave the resolution part out. But, when I read this post I thought it was a great idea. Something I couldn't necessarily mess up or fail at. And possibly something that I could keep up with throughout the year. However, the hard part... figuring out a WORD..... just one word... to sum up what I want for 2009. Man, that's a lot in one word. After lots of reflection and mind stretching I picked that ONE word: That's all. That's what I want for 2009. Contentment with everything in my life... because contentment brings: happiness, gratefulness, appreciation, devotion and gratitude. All of which would make for a great and wonderful 2009.
