I'm awash in words. How to CHOOSE just one? I've never done this before, but I've loved reading your posts about choosing one little word for the year. As I REFLECT on 2012, I can sum up my incredible journey with the word plunge. March was the month that my students and I took the plunge to write every day. I had never posted to Two Writing Teachers before, but with an incredible group of students by my side, I joined this group and I've never looked back.
It's been fun to DISCOVER that I'm a writer. I SAVOR Tuesdays when I join my fellow bloggers to LISTEN. Your words ENCOURAGE, ENRICH, and INSPIRE me. I feel your EMBRACE through the kind words you leave on my blog.
I'm in search of a FOCUS that will help me CAPTURE the GROWTH that beckons for 2013. I want to become less scattered and find more BALANCE, to go SLOW, to CELEBRATE more often.
I love words, so this task of choosing just one is overwhelming! I'm trying to DECIDE which word calls loudest to me. And I think it's the word that has no voice to call, but instead beckons me to a quieter path, one that asks me to LISTEN to my own voice more often, to trust that I can make progress bit by bit in this new year, to LISTEN to the voices around me, and to LISTEN for the gentle spiritual promptings that can guide me on my daily journey.
I plan to spend a few days LISTENING before I commit to my one little word for 2013.
