My Word

Hairyshoefairy inadvertently caused me a lot of reflection and I started thinking about what my one little word for the whole year would be. To me this was sort of a challenge to sum up my resolutions in one word. (Talk about simplifying!)

I have settled on Savor: (verb) to give oneself to the enjoyment of; to appreciate fully; enjoy or relish.

I need to REMEMBER to enjoy where I am RIGHT NOW. That is such a struggle for me. My mind is always racing ahead of the now and I get lost in planning and yearning and FORGET TO ENJOY what I already have. Sir Oliver is growing SO FAST that I cannot afford to waste his precious baby moments pining for anything else. Those baby moments are the one thing that cannot be replaced. So I must focus on SAVORING them. I need to SLOW DOWN and "cultivate simple pleasures." Simpler than money can buy.

I love the concept of one word! I can think of several words of the top of my head, but I want to really give it some thought. But "savour"...what a great way to sum things simple too!
