My word for 2011

I've had several words in contention for the "One Little Word" for this year. As I thought about which one to choose, I chose the one that caught my attention. I decided that this MUST be the word.

First, here's a peek at some of the contenders...

* Light (Remembering God's light in my life, seeing the light, becoming lighter ,))
* Faith (Always good to stay focused "In God We Trust")
* Grace (God's Grace is ever present)
* Present (Live in the moment, yesterday is gone and we aren't promised tomorrow)
* Abundance
* Joy (goes with fun, and happiness)
* Fun (goes with joy and happiness, try and have more)
* Happiness (goes with joy and fun)
* Fit (the Winner)
* Energetic (kind of goes with fit)

My word for 2011 is.... drum rolls.... FIT! I had several words in contention but kept coming back to this one so I finally decided upon this word. FIT. DO-BE-HAVE.

fit - adjective, fit·ter, fit·test, verb, fit·ted or fit, fit·ting, noun –adjective
Fit - 1. in good physical condition; in good health

There is such a huge connection between happiness and good health. I don't take enough time to build a foundation of good health. Good health can be the launching pad for great things. It is hard to stay on track and consistent with my goals (of any kind) when my body isn't up to the challenge. It is extremely important to make sure my body stays (in my case "gets") in great condition if I want to build greater happiness in my life.

I will live with it, invite it into my life. Let it speak to me and also follow its lead. I will identify the major characteristics of its qualities. I will focus on the qualities I would like to become. I will use it as my lens to see the changes I need to make as well as determine whether or not change is actually happening.

Staying focused on my word will give me direction. Besides FIT covers a couple of the other contenders too. If I get FIT I will be lighter, have more joy, it could be fun which will bring greater sense of well-being and happiness and we all know with fitness comes more energy. So it's a good word. Here's to your (and my) health in 2011.

It is health that is the real wealth, not pieces of gold and silver. ~Gandhi

    I've started all over as well. I've been with Sparkpeople for about 5 years. I initially lost around 70lbs but now I need to lose 30 lbs. I'm starting new. I'm also beginning an overhaul on my heart and past garbage! So, hope to see you around!
