My "one word" for 2012

Saturday, December 31, 2011

In an earlier blog, my SP friend Mrs. Principal put forth the value of having one word to characterize your 2012. I've decided my word will be ACTION.

Thinking is good--necessary, but after thinking situations through, all the positive things that have happened in my life seem to have come after action. Usually it was my action, but sometimes action was taken on my behalf. I definitely want to be more than ever the instigator of positive things happening because of my positive actions.

Some quotes viewed just today on SP guided me to this choice:

“Knowing is not enough. we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Action expresses priorities.
~Mohandas Gandhi

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." ~Aristotle

    Great Word Momita! I agree...

    My word for 2012 is from EAT, PRAY, LOVE: "Attraversiamo"

    To cross over... & ALL that beautiful Italian word entails..I am crossing over from the bad/negative stuff in 2011 & leaving it behind (work, relationships, negativity, etc...*blech* BE-GONE!)

    I am "crossing-over" on action, on faith, on positive results.
    I am crossing over to Love, Happiness, Health, Prosperity, & Success in Work, Love, & Life!

    I will take a LEAP OF FAITH..."LEAP AND THE NET WILL APPEAR" is one of my favorite quotes!

    I will Delve N2 2012! "Attraversiamo... “let's cross over" ...together

    SUCCESS to you all in 2012!

    Belissima! emoticon

    That´s so true , it seems to me that I´m always planning something but I rarely got to do it , it reminds me of a little present I received years ago that said "I´m studying how to begin to study" emoticon
    For this new year I also want to get things done.
    Thanks Sparkamiga
