My word for 2012 is commit.
For me, this word will serve as a mantra for how I will choose to move through life in 2012. Whatever I do, I choose to commit. Getting up before the sun to go for a run? Commit. In the home stretch of graduate school work and not sure I can make it? Rally energy and commit to making it. Making a tricky rock climbing move? Commit. Need to relax and allow space for rejuvenation? Commit.
This word also reminds me to focus, bring my attention to the full moment, be present and ignore distractions. Less hemming and hawing and almost-ing. More definitive yes-ing and no-ing. Fully commit to the yes. Fully commit to the no. Own the responsibility for that commitment.
In 2012, I commit.
