I came across a blog article about choosing a word of the year instead of making resolutions, and the idea really resonated with me. I pondered my word and decided that the word for 2012 is...expand.

I want to expand my thinking, my abilities and capabilities, my relationships, my learning, my earning, my creativity, my productivity, my strength, my stamina, my efficiency, my experiences, my options and opportunities.

I'll have to condense my "color outside the lines" theme for 2012, and I think the one word for them is traverse. I want to cross over into new and unknown territory, and see what's out there beyond what I know. I'm already making some progress in that direction.

I like the idea of seeing it as a compass, Charlene. I'm always desperately in need of a good navigator. :)

Traverse, I love it! That's a word to go places on. I need a compass, a map, a GPS...
