change :: my word for 2013


Change.

The one word that makes the most sense for my 2013.
Change little things and change big things.

2013 is going to be my year of change. I don't know what will change nor how nor when, but all of the sudden change became this little big word I couldn't let go of.

When I first read Elise's post about choosing her word for 2012, I had a hard time getting it. I loved and was touched by her story, but I didn't understand the concept nor how it could last for a whole year. I put the post to the back of my mind as yet another one of those cool things you read online but that have no relevance to you. And then on my flight from home it hit me! Change!

The first thing that has changed is that I set new year resolutions for myself, measurable goals for this year. As with most things, breaking your goals into small steps really helps making them more manageable, less daunting and ultimately more achievable. I will be working on those stepping stones each month, hopefully keeping my goals in full view. 

Isn't it nice to have a plan? 
(I guess my need for plans, even if vague ones, will remain largely unchanged!)

  1. Absolutely! I need to have plans on my own, some kind of sense of direction and knowing what I want to achieve in daily steps :)
    Good luck

  5. I have been working with a word of the year last year as well, and it's a pretty powerful tool!
    Wishing you the loveliest 2013: it WILL be a year of change and I am happy for you (and LMrJ) about that!
