2010 in One Word

I’m participating in Reverb10, “an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next.”

The challenge is to post daily throughout December in response to whatever interesting prompt that day’s writer puts forth. I’m all for introspection, New Year’s resolutions, discerning patterns and paths.

Today’s prompt (from Gwen Bell) is awesome:

encapsulate 2010 in one word. Then, imagining yourself a year from now, what will 2011’s word have been? I’ve been turning this over in mind ever since I received the prompt.

For me, 2010 has been a year of Growth.

Personal, professional, emotional, social growth.

Day by day, month by month, I’ve grown in so many, many ways.

Stronger? Certainly. Wiser? I’d like to think so. Balanced? I’m getting there, slowly but surely.

Focused? Much more so. Impassioned? At times, absolutely. Risk-taking? You bet.

I like where I am, and even better, I like where I’m headed.

The word that I believe will capture 2011? Flourishing.

What are your words?
