So I completely missed it last year when everyone started picking anchor words and mantras instead of making resolutions, but I like it.
I have so many things that are automatically on the to-do list this year that making official resolutions just seems completely impractical. But the idea of giving myself something to focus on is very appealing to me.
So this year my goal is to simply "savor".
Savor moments with family.
Savor the feeling of "rightness" when I help a client.
Savor lazy days in front of the fireplace with Jason.
Savor a good glass of wine.
Savor this short period in my life that I am "engaged". It won't come again, and I don't want to speed past any of it on my way to the next part.
I often hear people say that this is the "end of a chapter" or the "start of your story", but the way I see it, this is a chapter all it's own! I want to enjoy it.
So, that's my word.
Did you choose a word for 2013? What is it?
