On Tuesday night, when I was supposed to be working hard on my freelance, Andrea at A Cat of Impossible Colour wrote a blog post about her reflections on 2009. She finished the post by asking her readers what one word they would like to sum up 2010 – a sort of an alternative resolution for the verbose amongst us.
I’d like to make my word “present”. I feel that for the last two years of my life I’ve been a spectator. I’ve left everything to fate, let things happen in a way I’d never have done in the past – I think I went through such upheaval at the end of 2007 that to step outside my own life was the only way I could cope. This new year I’d really like to claim it back, to feel a part of myself again. I’d like to be “present” once more in my own story.
Happy new year everyone! What’s your word for 2010?
