My Word of the Year–CONTENT

Miss Layla from the Lettered Cottage is having a little party starting 1/16 inviting folks to identify their WORD

for 2012!

Thinking on this I found myself coming back again and again to a word that fits

for me


and that I hope to concentrate on throughout the year

{and really forever!}

That word is



to be

content to be in the moment

content to be at the place I am  in life (not just looking ahead or behind)

content with my abilities

content with my home

content with my loved ones

content with this little blog

content with my aspirations


this is not to say that I won’t be striving and pushing and challenging myself to grow but I will

concentrate on the moments

on the now

and try to be


I wish you all the very very best today and 
in the year ahead!!

  1. Contentment is a perfect in the moment and being aware of what is around you at the moment that brings you peace. I chose Joy...finding it in all things, little or large. Now if I can always remember to refer to it!


  2. That has been my motto for yours. I am loving your blog and enjoying going through your posts. We seem to be similar in a lot of ways.

  3. I love your word for 2012. That is a hard one for me...really hard. I didn't pick a work this year...probaly because my head is a jumbled mess right now! ha...good luck finding your contenemnt my dear! xo

  4. I love this one - it's mine too!
    I'll be practicing it along with a few other things...
    Blessings as you journey!
