Twenty Ten

Twenty Ten! Don’t you like the sound of that! It sure beats “o-ten”, because that just sounds weird. So this is the year that I can’t be so private with my New Year’s Resolutions, or at least one of them. I’ve never been much for declaring my resolutions, so instead, I love the one word for the year idea.

My word for the year: Discipline.

“Discipline is remembering what you want.” – David Campbell

It’s also Sarah from Clover Lane‘s word too, and I loved it! It is exactly the word I need this year… heck, every year. I loved Sarah’s post declaring her word for the year, it’s like she was reading my mind.

2010 is already starting off in a big way …for me. I’m running a relay in May with a group of bloggers, and I’m excited/scared/thrilled to have something to motivate me. I’ll be posting sporadically over on the relay blog over the next four months, and I’ll let you know when I do.

And this is why Discipline is the word for me in 2010. It was either Discipline or Procrastination. 😉

Welcome Two Thousand And Ten… here we go!

ps. Have you picked a word for the year yet?!

    2008 was "my year" and that turned out to be a crappy year. 2009 was "survive" and I did survive. 2010 will be "enjoy". My goals are focused more on "enjoying" every moment. So I think that will be my word:)
    Good luck on the run. It's totally a mind game and if you put your mind to it–you can do it!!

    That 2010 photo is AWESOME!

    Good for you….best wishes with the relay! Can't wait to hear how it goes. I want in next time :)

    p.s. Don't tell your mom, but I drank loads of diet coke when training for all seven of my marathons :0

    Oh, wow! I'm so glad to not be the only one who has a "word of the year." Lol! I love yours! So inspiring! My word is "abundance" for 2010. I'm trying to focus on the abundance in my life and be filled with gratitude.

    The firework/sparkler photo is amazing! And perfect. My sparklers never quite turn out like that :).

    Happy 2010!

    My word is "deliver"

  5. Annie says


    change the way I deal with stress
    change the way I eat
    change/evolve into the person I working to become (less judgemental/more open to spontaneity)

    my word choice came from a quote M&E's English teacher posted on her website – I thought it was great!

    "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change" – Charles Darwin.

    Change is inevitable. It can randomly happen to you, but you can also actively choose to change. I have watched some of the people I love "change/evolve/adapt" this year. It is tough to do. I have been inspired watching these people find their way down new roads.

    Here's to 2010 and making great changes!

    I was going to post my goals tonight. :) LOVE that picture of 2010 in fireworks – so cool. Also so cool you are running! It helps so much to stay motivated when you have something like that to work towards.

    Great tip on recycling old cards!

    I too love that photo–amazing! And I love the idea of choosing a word for the year. I will have to think hard as to what that will be for sure, but right now "offline" is buzzing around my head.

    I heard about the relay–that's so exciting! I'm here cheering for you!

    Good for you for running the relay. Should be fun! That's a great word for the year. Mine is three words. This year is a "Do It Yourself" year. Among my DIY goals are: home make salsa and refinish my kitchen table.. all by myself!
