My word for 2012...


This new year brings about many new and exciting changes for me.  
A move to a new city...something I have never done before. 

I suppose for those of you that know the "real me" you might wonder why I didn't choose the word, stress. :-)
(journey just sounds much nicer doesn't it?)

No, really, this word is such a perfect reminder for me!
Moving to the Seattle area is something we've dreamed of for a few years now.
So, hang on Becca and enjoy the ride!

Did you choose a word for 2012?
I would love to hear about it.

Yes Becca, Journey is a great word. I would choose it if I had such a wonderful move to look forward to. You are so lucky. I dream of moving to a place where there's more nature, more culture, more charm...Kansas is lovely but in a quiet country sort of way. So my word for the year is Thankful. I want to be thankful for where I am at and what I have rather than don't have.

: )
I am happy for you, Becca! My word(s) are the ones you gave me "Take Flight"...I'm excited about them. Happy New Years!
Happy New year! I always choose a new word for each year...but haven't chosen mine yet! I'll think about it today and comment again later! I love your new profile are very beautiful! ♥♥♥
Catherine said…
Look at how beautiful Seattle is Becca! Oh that beautiful water! No dry heat there. I am so excited for you!

Journey is a good word for you this year. It's going to be awesome!

I didn't post my word for the year yet but I will later this week, though I gave a hint to it on today's post.

Have a terrific Sunday friend!

Justine said…
what a great word! perfect and now I can see what you look like too! love your profile shot. I bet your 2012 will be wonderful. My word is positive!
Wishing the best to you on your journey...wherever it takes you! I chose the word meditate...but as I was meditating this morning (in bed at 5 am ish) just as I was drifting back to sleep...the word EVOLVE woke me slam up). So...I have a new word given to me by my superconcious and I'm stickin with it!!!
Jillayne said…
Very good word Becca, and very true words in your post. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees and sometimes we can't see the tree for the forest...
I am choosing a different word for each month - one word for the whole year is too long for me! My attention span must be going as I get older....
Wishing all the for this great year ahead!

Happy New Year to you, Becca! All the best for you and your move to Seattle! What a great word for 2012 - enjoy your journey!
Everyone should move to a larger city at least once in their lives; it's a powerful thing to do for yourself.
My words for 2012 - balance and peace, both of which I'm struggling to find since my husband died in November.
Judy S. said…
Nice photo of our city, Becca! I hope you enjoy it here as much as we have. No baby yet.....
Lisa Gordon said…

Journey is such a great word. There is so much to it... the outward journey to Seattle, but also your inward journey through 2012. I hope we can meet up once you get here!
That's a good word...I haven't even considered that one! I'll still thinking about a word and my list of goals! heehee! I've been too busy to sit down and ponder! Hugs! ♥
