One Little Word 2010

Most of you know that Ali Edwards picks a word for each year. I think I did this once a few years ago and then never kept up with it. Well, this year I have decided to join this annual ritual and I picked strive to be my word.

{strive}
1. to exert oneself vigorously; try hard: He strove to make himself understood.
2. to make strenuous efforts toward any goal: to strive for success.
3. to contend in opposition, battle, or any conflict; compete.
4. to struggle vigorously, as in opposition or resistance: to strive against fate.
5. to rival; vie.

I picked this word, because to fulfill my goal, this will be a year filled with hard work. I hope to stay focused and to keep progressing regardless of what happens in the future. I hope to be motivated, strong, and successful.

Have you picked a word for 2010 yet?

  5. Nice word Sparkle! It sounds like you're ready for 2010. I don't have a word, so I will think about that. I don't write out New Year resolutions each year, but I do have some ideas of things I'd like to accomplish. Maybe I SHOULD write them out so I stick with it? Hmmm...
