Word of the Year

I never really understood when people would pick a word to be their theme for the year.  I didn’t understand how one word could be a theme for a whole year.  How could one word represent so much that we hoped the new year would hold.  Then I was reading All of a Kind Family’s post about her 2012 word and something clicked.  Not only did I finally understand I had a word come to me out of no where. 

My word for 2012 is persevere.  I feel like in the last year when things got tough I gave up.  When things got busy I let the not so fun tasks go.  When I was tired or sick I gave up.  This year I hope to persevere and push myself.  Push my self to do better, try harder, and not give up!
