A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow. From my own experience, it can be a spark for enriching your life.
In 2009, I chose one word for myself - a word that I could focus, meditate and reflect on as I went about my daily life. That year I chose gentle. It was a great choice and influenced me in ways I still feel. In 2010 I chose vitality. Again, a very good selection. It was motivating and kept me feeling alive.
