For the last several years, I have followed many scrapbookers and bloggers who choose a word every year and then make that word a large part of their year going forward. I always wanted to participate, but kept putting it off--though I'm not really sure why. Possibly because it was intimidating to me, to choose a word and then focus a year of my life around it. But this year, 2011, I feel like I need a bit more guidance. I feel like 2010 was such a huge struggle each day just to keep it together, to keep getting up in the morning and I want this year to be amazing. I know that I can make it amazing, and I think doing this project will help. So, here's to 2011, may I find balance. Balance between friends, family and my boyfriend; between work and play; between all of my many hobbies.

Did you choose a word for 2011? If you care to share, I'd love to hear!
