Just one word to see me through 2013.
2013 marks the fourth year of selecting one to march three hundred sixty-five days forward. Each word and each year have varying levels of connectivity and impact.
2012 and my word, Animate, didn't gel quite so well...which probably played a factor in my late arrival at 2013's word, this twenty-first day of the first month of this new year. But, 2011 and my word, Grow, taught me just how much focus a solitary word can bring to a year's journey.
Late last year, the word Imagine called to me, but when January 1st arrived, it was no longer set on the navigator's seat. Act, Do, Forward all rang at the door, but never fully stepped through.
And then in the most surprising fashion, as I wrote the last paragraph for a book club response earlier today, a word that had only whispered so softly before, charged through the door and rather assertively took the navigator's seat.
One word, Create.
2013, meet Create.
I'm looking forward to our journey together.
