I love the first day of the year. It's like starting a new chapter of your life...the pages are blank, just waiting to be written. There's a whole year ahead of you, full of possiblity.

It's a day of reflection and resolutions. A day of clearing out the old, and bringing in the new.

A day for one little word. After much thought, I have settled on my one little word for this year...momentum. According to my little Oxford dictionary, it means impetus gained by movement.

In 2010, I started to make some changes in my life...good changes that have improved my emotional well-being in many ways. In 2011, I hope to continue these changes and allow them to gather some momentum, some speed, some power. I've also earmarked today to make changes to the way I feel physically...and as I begin to see the results of these changes, I will use momentum to help me keep going, to help me achieve my goals.

I'm excited to see where my little word will take me this year.

Happy New Year to you and yours...may 2011 be filled with possibilty and happiness.

Great word for the year. So often I will say, "-and then I lost momentum..." I think that just keeping the word before you will help you keep the momentum. Happy new year!
