Word of 2011!

For those of you who do not know, My second mommy has started a tradition that I have yet to partake in. Every year she picks a "word of the year". A word that she wants to center her year around to help her self become more whole (at least that is how I have come to understand it :))

While I did not pick a word at the start of 2010, If I had to sum it up to a single word now that it has come to an end, I would have to chose the word "conquer" I think that both I and my little family have reached a point where we can say that we have finally conquered many of our demons and we stand strong hand in hand ready to face the new challenges that lie ahead of us.
So to start out this beautiful new year I am going to choose the word:
Meaning to give free reign to.
I want to indulge in LIFE. I have spent a few years now feeling like I was preparing to live but not actually living. For the last several months since I have been staying home it has become increasingly clear to me that I set FAR more goals than I come even close to attaining. I don't want to do that this year. I want to explore and play and try new things. I want to give back to others and and learn to appreciate all the small things that I have missed out on while I was to busy making plans.
I want to watch the shine in my daughters eye as she figures out new things. I want to play blocks with my son for hours on end until it feels as gratifying and adventurous to me as it does to him. I want to look my husband in the eye on our hardest days and make sure he knows how much I love him and how happy he makes me.
So while I am dying to make some goals like:
*Exercise 3x a week
*Try 50 new recipes
*Teach Tukker to read
I am going to pass. I am going to sign off of this blog and go indulge in this day!
Here is to a satisfying year past and a a damn good year ahead!

Looks like a great word for you! I've often thought that it might do you good to be a little less focused on the end goals and enjoy the day a little more. I'm excited to see how this will look in your life. Love you so much!
