My Word for 2010

Keeping with the trend set last year, I have a new word.

But first, a little recap of my 2009 experiences with the word I chose. It was passion. I decided I would live with passion and pursue my passions and have passion for everything I did. Know what? I did! Want to know something else? It was exhausting! But good. Amazing, really.

As a result of my commitment to allowing myself to be the passionate person I truly am, I spent the entire year being extremely involved with local community theatre. This was probably the largest part of my passionate journey, and certainly took the most significant amount of time. But it was amazing. I was able to stage manage, run lights and sound, direct a show, and act in two shows. As a result of all this involvement, I made lasting friendships and solidified other ones.

An unexpected result of living with passion was finding a church I really enjoy and getting involved there, both in small group and in the children's ministry. It has really been great being involved with the wonderful people there.

Another unexpected result has been that I've finally found the perfect person to really be passionate about. And that leads me to my chosen word for 2010.

So the word for 2010... (drumroll please) is LOVE.

I always try to keep love in mind when I am interacting with others. Jesus told us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Sometimes our neighbors are not our favorite people in the world, but we must still love them. And there are so many different kinds of love, and so many different ways to show it. I will spend this year showing everyone in my life how much I love them, and also showing love to others who come into my life only to stay for a short time.

So that's the word for the year, and I'm excited about putting this word into practice. This should be an amazing year!


  1. You SO deserve to have "LOVE" as your word for 2010. Mine is "HOBBIES".

  2. I LOVE your word for 2010! It's a great one for you!

    And thanks for always being so encouraging. I LOVE YOU!
