2010  {stretch} 

What will my “word for 2010” be?  (one little word–inspired by ali edwards)

In 2008, I began my new lifestyle of counting calories, working out, and getting healthy & strong. 

So, for 2009, I wanted to “refocus & renew”.  Not on my physical, but my spiritual. 

As I began to think about my word for 2010…I finally decided upon “stretch”. 

I tried to think of a word that sums up how I want to live in 2010.  (This goes along with my “40 till 40”, not as lessons learned, but learning.) 

How does the word stretch apply? 

  • I need to stretch out of my comfort zones. 
  • I need to stretch beyond my limitations & fears of failing. 
  • I need to stretch my creativity and push myself harder. 
  • I need to stretch beyond thinking of myself, but to thinking of others. 
  • I need to stretch out of my comfortable relationship with Christ and challenge myself to dig deeper. 
  • I need to stretch my mind and learn new things. 
  • I need to, literally, stretch my budget and push myself to do the projects that I once had a vision & ideas for, (using the scrap stash I already have). 
  • I need to stretch my state of mind, knowing that I am entering new phases in my life….I am turning 40…celebrating 18 years of marriage to my best friend/hubby….my son is going to be driving this year, no longer the ‘little guy’ he once was, but becoming a young gentleman. 

What’s your ‘word’ for 2010?
