My 'Word for the Year'

How many of you have seen this idea around, in emails, blogs, on art sites? I find the idea popping up more and more and even though I have done this in the past, it has been a while since I have had a 'word for the year' to focus on.
This year my word to focus on is COURAGE. The definition I'm using for 'courage' is one that I heard Brene' Brown give in a TED Talk - 'to tell your story with your whole heart'. Isn't that a magnificent definition?! It also sounds like a scary and challenging thing to do, but if I don't try to live this word I will never know if I can LIVE this word. So, what word do you want to live, learn or be this year?


  1. Well, I just watched the Brene Brown talk...when I saw that it ran 20 minutes, I thought "No Way, I can't listen for that long!" but I did. Really made me think. Especially about the numb part. How you can't numb one part of your life without numbing the good stuff. Hmmm....maybe my word will be "Un-numb"

  2. I KNOW!!! isn't that just annoying, because I so want to numb the 'bad' stuff!! Un-numb is a great word!!
