one word for 2012

Instead of creating a list of New Year’s resolutions, I’m joining other tweeps in the #oneword2012 revolution.  The basic premise is to select one word that will guide you throughout the year.  Check out this post for more information on #oneword: http://christinekane.com/blog/resolution-revolution-a-better-way-to-start-your-year/

I knew in November what word I wanted to use.  It marries my hopes, goals and aspirations and I am sure this word will give me better focus overall.  I’ve chosen MOVEMENT as my one word for 2012.

move·ment definition

Pronunciation:  /ˈm{uuml}v-mənt/
Function: n
1 :  the act or process of moving

I plan to incorporate movement into every aspect of my life.  I will physically move more, in an effort to trim and tone, and get into better shape.  I will continue to work hard to move my career forward, seeking opportunities that I may have previously overlooked.  I will need to move out of my comfort zone and into uncharted territory, as I begin my thesis for my Master of Education program this month, and continue to do so until it’s completed (hopefully less than a year).  I want to move others to action, in a way that is connected to each individual’s own goals and aspirations.

I feel as though I have stood still for too long in many areas of my life, so it’s time to get a move on! I’m excited for the momentum of this one word challenge and witnessing others’ journeys with their selected one word.
