With each new year, there seems to be that fresh beginning, the optimism, the wave of new energy. As the last of 2009 faded, the word accomplish kept repeating itself to me. Accomplish. Accomplish. It chose me and it felt right to me. So, that is my word for 2010.

There’s a lot I want to do this year and this word will be used as the springboard to get me there.

I want to have the strength to follow my voice and make this the year to accomplish so many things I’ve put off, been too scared to try.

I want to get the mundane chores done. No putting off checking the homeowners policy any more. No more putting off getting the will done. No more putting off making hard choices.

Accomplish.

I want to change my body. I want to exercise more. I want to eat better. I want to feel more alive.

Accomplish.

I want to make a business out of my creativity. I have an etsy site but I need to manage it. I want to find the courage to approach schools about my snack bags. There’s a market and need for them.

Accomplish.

There’s so much to do. So much I want to get done. All this will require, focus, hard work, a positive attitude and courage. But I have a desire to see the finish line.

May your year be filled with big dreams and the power, strength and will to accomplish them.

I like your plan - and think you should keep a checklist going for the year so you can see all that you accomplishment - that, also, is an accomplishment!

Do you watch The Office? When I put that disclaimer on my post today I had the urge to write "I Disclaim a Cookbook!" in the same way Michael yelled out "I Declare Bankrupcy!" a few seasons back. Dumb FCC rules for bloggers!

My cousin and I used to do that, have a word to describe and create a goal for the new year. We didn't pick a word this year. I'll have to remind her :) Sounds like you have some great goals lined up!
