welcome 2011: let's begin

my one little word for this year is:
this word is a verb meaning: 1) to perform the first or earliest part of some action; commence; start 2) to come into existence; arise; originate 3) to be the originator of.  its synonyms include such words as: inaugurate, actualize, establish, instigate, introduce, generate, impel, open, prepare, produce, undertake, become functional. 
this is how i am approaching the year 2011... with the intention of opening myself up to the possibility held by this word.  i want to begin so many things, and also finish what i start.  i want to savor the beginnings of things and recognize the change they bring.  i want to "be the originator" of action and progress and movement.

i want to begin to live.

are you journying through 2011 with a word also?  i would love to hear your OLW story.  please feel free to link to your blog so i can read and share with you this year.  i have a feeling this is the beginning of a beautiful year. 


  1. Love it! An awesome word!

    My word is peace. Still pondering it.

  2. I'm not picking a word this year, but I've been thinking a lot about this word too. There is so much I just need to begin, just start and break the ice. Like getting back into blogging, and other creative endeavors... getting started seems like half the battle! There is so much coming up this year that I want to fully be present for and not let it all just pass by because... it will all pass by! Such a great word to reflect on right now. :)
