In One Word.


forget complicated resolutions. Toss them in the bin, I say.

If you could sum up in just one word what you want from 2010, what would that word be?

I’ve thought hard about my word. I’ve gone through about three words before I arrived at this one. I asked my sisters what their words would be, and then I asked them what they thought of my word. It was met with a resounding, YES!

My word is ME. I want to focus on me. I want to put me first. I spend most of my days putting other people first, which is lovely… but it gets to the point where I start singing… What about me? It isn’t fair…

So as self involved as it is. 2010 is the year of ME.

What is your word? What is 2010 the year of for you?

  1. On twitter I said 'time', which I guess meant 'time for me' since there is always time for the boys, time for the house, time for work, time for family etc.

    So maybe, “time” – but time for me, and for my relationship with my husband.

  2. Chantelle..I love that word..ME…and mine would probably be the same…otherwise GROW…I want to grow more as a person..and not from being a mother or a wife..although I have grown the most through being both of these..but as a person who can stand alone and feel that she has grown through other experiences…be it creatively..socially…intellectually..just to grow in other avenues…does that sound daft? lol

  3. I'm am right there with you. You took the words right out of my mouth!!

    This is my exact motto for next year. I mentioned '2010 – the Year of ME' on my blog yesterday but plan to flesh out what it means for me in more detail later on.

  4. I'm still undecided – humble, grateful, helpful. I will be doing a lot for me this coming year (i.e. studying and sacrificing a lot of work/friend/family time which ultimately is for me) so i'm hoping I can remind myself to be humble on those days where i'm losing focus and perspective (the same can be said for grateful and helpful).

  5. For me, my word for 2010 is “US” because we're getting married in November, so it's all about our next chapter as a couple. I think I might save “ME” for 2011 though!

  6. Hmmm hard.

    I'm going to say BALANCE

    Because like you – I need a bit more of ME. But I need some time with hubby, I need time out from the homelife, I need mental stimulation. All of those things will bring balance.

  7. My word is FULFILMENT. I hope to fulfil a lot of goals and hopes.

    This year has had some good points, but I don't feel fulfilled. By the end of 2010 I want to say 'wow, I am getting somewhere'.

    Might write that in my diary!

  8. I know this will sound dirty but – BALLS. I want the guts to do what I've been putting off because I'm afraid and keep making excuses. I want to give new things a go.

    So I want balls from 2010. Big, fat balls.


  9. I love your word! 🙂

    Mine is motivation. I want/need to lose weight and will do it with a lot of motivation. Motivation won't stop there though – I want to be motivated to do a lot of other things and thrive for more!

  10. Go Telle, I reckon that sounds really really healthy! And I bet it'll make you a better wife, mum, friend as a bonus, because you'll be happier and so well in yourself. Happy New Year!!! xoxo

  11. I think my word for this year is going to be CLIMB. I'm not ashamed to say that Miley Cyrus's song “The Climb” is kind of my theme song right now..and so CLIMB is my word. (Funny, I was going to a post like this too!)

  12. it's taken me a couple of days to think of mine. I don't know why I found it so difficult. I suppose I want to get it right 🙂 Mine is YES.
    I'm going to say 'YES' more often, to more things, and especially to things I would normally shy away from.
    Happy New Year!!
