In the words of Ali Edwards...

My one little word for 2010 is LIVE
Many of you know that I am an avid movie buff and as I was thinking and contemplating what my word for this year would be I kept thinking about an old movie that I love, Auntie Mame. And there is a wonderful quote from the film which inspired my word choice....Auntie Mame: Oh, Agnes! Here you've been taking my dictations for weeks and you haven't gotten the message of my book: live!
Agnes Gooch: Live?
Auntie Mame: Yes! Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!

I am also very inspired by Kolette Hall and her blog, The Art of Choosing Joy. I was lucky to meet her at Creative Escape and take her Gratitude Journal class and have not forgotten how she stressed focusing on the "problems" does not make you feel better, so why not focus on the good in our daily lives. While I believe and embrace this I sometimes can lose my The last couple of years have been challenging on many fronts for me and so now I say, "it is time to live."

I look forward to the banquet that 2010 promises to bring...
