Committed....

The new year was still fresh, the countdown barely over, when I decided to change my word of the year. Instead of 'let go,' I decided to 'commit.' It just seemed right somehow. Maybe deep down I just knew that I wasn't ready to let go of anything. Especially not the letting go of my daughter - the college-bound high school senior who will be taking my heart with her when she leaves next fall.

I did feel the pull of commitment though. And instead of feeling burdened by commitments, I'm feeling energized and excited to be putting plans into action. I'm taking chances, following through on ideas, and waiting to see where it will all lead.

I've restocked my Etsy shop and added a couple of new designs. That plump, shiny eggplant looked perfect in the pottery from Portugal, and the canoes are a happy reminder of our summer trip to Michigan.

Good girl-I'm feeling so overwhelmed by my unfinished projects that I just need to start making lists and plow through them. Good on ya

I need to post about my word. It took me ages to decide on. Thanks for the nudge.

I think both are really good words because each has lots of possibilities! :-)

Off to college? Been there, done that. It's tough, but if I can do it, anyone can!!! :-)

Committed is good too! And you can change your word when ever...no rules on that. It has to feel right!
