A Word for My Year

The challenge has been given to pick a word for 2013. A word that would define direction, purpose, pursuit for the next 365 days. I have never done this before, but this 12 months will be different.

My word for this coming year is...present.

fully here.
conscious; aware; at attention.
understanding the import of this current moment.
unwilling to sacrifice now to the regret of yesterday 
or the deadline of tomorrow.

I have some ideas about how to work toward this end and I will probably write about it here in the days and months to come.

Here's to a new year filled with awareness, attentiveness, and presence.


  1. Great word! I look forward to reading about your discoveries!
