My word...Light. I'm choosing light because 2010 has shined the light on/answered a lot of questions that had been plaguing me as far as my future was concerned.
-I got engaged. I'm constantly filled up with the light of love and gratitude-not to mention the light/bling on my ring finger. This, of course, answered the question "Will I ever trust/love a guy enough to want to walk down the aisle again?"
-I got a job in the archives which led to a job in special collections and the lightbulb came on. This answered the question "Is library work right for me-should I get my master's in library science?"
-My sister had a baby who I totally fell in love with. I now see that kids have a sweet little light in them and they aren't all just little demons. That answered the question "Will I ever want to have kids of my own?"
-I've now made it to the end of the semester alive and realized that I only have 8 classes left to take-I now see the light at the end of the tunnel. That answered the question "Can I really get through this and graduate?"
I thought that in 2010 light was the perfect word. What do I want my word for 2011 to be? Create. I want Andy and I to spend our first year as a married couple creating an amazing life together and I wouldn't be sad if we actually ended up 'creating'
