my word for 2012.... Embrace


My word for 2012 is Embrace

My Flytribe from by Kelly Rae Roberts course this past summer is having a Word Hop. We have each chosen a word for the year 2012 and mine is EMBRACE. I chose this word for many reasons... I was getting ready for work one morning thinking about the word I wanted to choose, I was listening to Pandora. The song The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel came on (live version) and when I heard this verse:

Now the years are rolling by me
They are rockn' evenly
I am older than I once was
And younger I'll be and that's not unusual.
No it isn't strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same

I realized that you cannot change things out of your control that you must embrace them, that you and others have different ideas and you must embrace them and you are who you are and your personality really can't change... "We are more or less the same, after changes we are more or less the same..." as the song says and so, this year I will try to embrace things that change that are out of my control, embrace who I am and embrace decisions that are made by others that I may be fearful of.

As the year progresses, I will have embraced more only time will tell. I will ad more to my journal and more posts as the year carries on. 

Come visit our blog and explore the links of my Flytribe members: Flytribe Word Hop and enjoy reading about my friends. I will also have a button on my page that you can always click on to follow the Flytribe Word Hop.

Hope your New Year has started off well and thanks for stopping by....

  4. Looks like this is my first time visiting. I came from CED and I really like your word for the year. Mine is inspire, but I think yours is probably more accurate. Really like that journal spread, too. Very colorful. I'll definitely be back.

  10. Cool! We all might walk a little easier through life if we just learned to "embrace" life as it comes. Good choice of words.

  20. Embrace is such a wonderful word - it reminds me of one of the things I am learning to do and that is accept - accept the things, people, etc. that I cannot change and work on what I can, which is me. You will be a blessing to everyone you meet as you strive to embrace in 2012!
