Pick a Word, Any Word

This is one of my favorite words.
Not because I believe I inspire others,
but at how much others inspire me.

But it's not my word.
At least not this year.
One year it may be.
At that time,
I'll try to inspire others.

This year,
my word is

Are you wondering what I'm talking about?
It's something I heard about at the start of the New Year.
I thought I'd like to share it with you.

The reporter suggested that one should pick a word for the New Year.
The idea is to select a word that would be something
for one to work towards achieving for the year.
Some even select a word per month instead.
That's too complicated for me.

Why did I chose move?
My goal is to physically move more.
I'm off to a good start,
making sure I take at least
10,000 step per day.
That is the minimum required
steps per day for optimum health.

If you don't have  word for 2011 yet,
let me offer these, perhaps one of them
will suit you or get you to thinking about yours.

Aspire, Strive, Pursue, Reflect, Create, Inspire,
Wellness, Gratitude, Treasure, Contemplate,
Appreciate, Joy, Persist, Learn, Trust,
Observe, Acknowledge, Rejoice, Happy,
Serve, Help, Laugh.

I've shared my word with you.
If you pick a word for 2011,
I'd love it if you'd share it with me.

Have fun!

You have got me thinking, Jill! I want to make sure I pick the right one before I commit to it! I will let you know which one I pick.
