Word of the Year
Last year I chose "determination" as my word of the year. Reading my post from December 31, 2009, I realized that as the year progressed, my determination was pushed aside.
I have chosen "Focus" as my word of 2011. Merriam-Webster defines focus as "to concentrate attention or effort". The key word for me is "concentrate". As I walk through 2011, I need to concentrate on what I want out of life. I need to concentrate on what I need to do to achieve my various goals and dreams. I need to focus on the main path and block out all the gobbledegook that takes me off that path and onto the side roads.
I guess that I should wear blinders like they used to put on horses. That way I can only look forward and not be distracted by what's on the sides. So today, I begin to focus. Have you chosen a word of the year??
