Ok, well picking one little word proved more difficult then I thought. I wanted to pick "stick to it", but it didn't really have good flow. KWIM? I need to stick to things... not abandon them when the initial thrill passes or when my "real" life crap gets in the way. Truly, real life will never stop, and I love my "real" life but in my heart I know there is something more to do. Something that will, in the end, be really me. So, I'm choosing this year... "perseverance". It seems like a harsh word to me, but I need to learn it.

I'm still thinking. Can you smell the wood burning?

one little word

Why is it so hard to go back to something? Somehow after a period of time has passed, it is embarrassing to return to something again. I guess I don't like acknowledging failure and I feel like I failed. I dropped the ball after that great time at NY Sheep & Wool. Maybe I'm afraid of succeeding. Maybe I'm lazy. I don't know. Anyway, here I am again. Even though I may very well fail. Again. But I guess I keep hoping someday, sometime, I'll get it together, stick to it and succeed.

Around blogland, there is a pretty popular idea of "one little word". Ali Edwards started the idea and lots of others have joined her. There is even a blog based on the idea. Basically, the idea is to choose one word which will serve as a guide or a touch stone for the year to come. I have not done this before, but I'm considering it for 2009. Maybe it would give me some focus. I just need to decide what word to choose. Hopefully, that won't take me until February.
