Well, in my case two words - and it's okay to have two.
I've been reading on different blogs recently how people are coming up with just one word to represent what they want and hope for life to be in the new year. I'm no good with resolutions, they usually fly out of the window by the second week in January! So I thought I'd give it some thought, a lot of thought actually, and find my One Word (or two).
Patience is my first word. I've looked up the definition of it on the WWW, it's amazing how many definitions there are, and I'm sure Patience is my first word.
It's something I seem to be running out of more than I ever used to. I'm quite a calm kind of person really but every so often the calmness deserts me! Perhaps it's an age thing? Whatever it is, in 2011 I'm going to keep remembering my word and put it into practice and maybe it will rub off on those around me too.
Focus is my other word. I need to focus on one thing at a time and see it through. I'm going to give it a try anyway.
Have you got your Word (or two) for 2011 yet?
Happy New Year!
