My Word for 2009

Today on her blog, Ali Edwards encouraged her readers to pick one word to be their word in 2009.

I love words so I jumped on this. But I had trouble deciding what my word should be. Should it be "begin" because I've realized there is much in my life that I've been waiting to start? Should it be "endure" because sometimes that's all I can do? Maybe "give" because I desperately want to share my love and myself with someone. Or perhaps my word should be "embrace" to remind me to embrace all that comes my way.

In the end, I settled on a word that I never would have thought of without a song (yeah, yeah, I know...using song titles again).
Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. I love this song. I love the optimism. "Live your life with arms wide open" and "We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but that I can't live that way" and "Drench yourself in words unspoken." What's not to love?

Therefore, my 2009 word is Unwritten. And when I think about it, the words to the song will play in my mind and I'll remember to be more open, to risk my heart more, to reach for the stars and begin living my dreams.

Happy New Year- may 2009 bring you peace, happiness, success and joy.
