{ one little word 2013 - shine }

I have finally decided on my One Little Word for the year.  

What is One Little Word?  You can read more about OLW on Ali's post here but I like the class desciption the best.

                 It can be something tangible or intangible. It can be a thought, a feeling,
             or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something 
             that has personal meaning for you. This is not your mother's word or 
             your spouse's word or your child's word—this is YOUR word.

Why did I choose Shine?

                     shine |SHīn|
         verb ( past and past participle shone |SHōn| or shined ) [ no obj. ]
        1. (of the sun or another source of light) give out a bright light: the sun shone through the window.
  • glow or be bright with reflected light: I could see his eyes shining in the light of the fire.
  • [ with obj. ] direct (a flashlight or other light) somewhere in order to see something in the dark: an usher shines his flashlight into the boy's faces.
  • (of a person's eyes) be bright with the expression of a particular emotion:his eyes shone with excitement.
        2. be very talented or perform very well: she shines at comedy.
        3. ( past shined ) [ with obj. ] make (an object made of leather, metal, or wood) bright by rubbing it; polish:                 

This world makes me happy.  I choose Shine so that I can be a shining example to my children.  I choose to Shine in my work. I choose to Shine in just my everyday fun.  

I also created a Pin board of things that I found around the web to help with my focus.

Happy 2013!
