Focus on Life~Week 2~Word for the Year

I'm joining Sally at The Studio Sublime for the Focusing on Life 52 photos challenge.  Each week Sally gives us a prompt and we post our photos on Saturday.

This week's prompt was, 'your word for the year'.  I'm not one to make new year resolutions.  In fact, in this post, I listed the things I won't be changing in the new year.  But even as I wrote that post, I knew I would be working on some changes that are long overdue.  In this post from last October, I talked about how my life has changed the last few years.  I was desperately ready for my life to make an about face.  So as 2012 came to a close I knew the new year would be focused on mind, body and soul.

I had not considered a word for the year.  As I thought about the changes I want to make it became clear that this is what I'm seeking.


Transformation.  A marked change usually for the better.

It's time. And I'm finally ready to face the challenges and obstacles to become the best version of me that I can be.

You can go here to see what word others have chosen.  If you would like to join in (it's not too late, you can join any time) go here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Love the angle of your picture! "Transformation" is a great word to inspire. From the posts I have read so far, all the words lead back to "change" or "transform" - I am learning so much about others through this bloghop - and I also see myself in a new light as well as I read through and relate to all of the posts.

  23. Transformation is such a great word. It really sums up where you want to go with your life.

    Twenty plus years ago I moved to where I am now because of my husband and did not know a soul. I worked and made "work friends", but it was not until I became involved in the the arts and crafts community that I began to feel like I belonged.

  26. Oh see you picked a great one! Easy to work with and CONQUER! I love this shot too as we still have dictionary's and I make the kids use them - half for torture half for practice - Google isn't half as fun as picking up a few new words!

  29. Transformation is a very powerful word, you have to be open and receptive and ready for the change to take place, then you have to greet it and embrace it and live with it. You can do all these things, I can't wait to see where the year takes you!
