Prompt: One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you're choosing that word. Now, imagine it's one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?


What a fantastic year.  I knew, as I sat on the precipice of the new year last December, that this year was going to be a Damn Good Year.  And it was.  It was the year I emerged.

This year, I chose to believe in myself.  This year, I chose to be myself.  I finally feel like who I am is just right, as if I've been Goldilocks wandering through my life, tasting all the porridge that the world had to offer, and found that who I was was all I ever needed.  I discovered I didn't want to chase after power.  I discovered I didn't need to sacrifice my health for security.  I discovered that if I follow my own desires, that I'll be just fine. 

I finally feel that I am enough.

Yes.  2010 is the year that I emerged. 

And next year?  Next year will be the year that my little bud will burst open, raining my brilliant colors and heady fragrance on those around me, sharing my own personal beauty with the world. 

It's time to bloom baby.  Bloom.
