New Year Tradition: One Little Word

A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow. From my own personal experience, it can be a catalyst, an event that quickly causes change or action, for enriching your life.

In 2014, I want to begin a tradition of choosing one word for myself each January—a word that I can focus on, meditate on, and reflect upon as I go about my daily life.  I considered words such as peace, vitality, and nurture, but decided on BECOMING. I want this word to become a part of my life in one way or another, in other words, I want this word to be my catalyst. I want it embedded into who I am, and into who I'm becoming. I hope this word will help me to breathe deeper, to see clearer and to grow. 

I also want my students to do the same.  Here is how you, my students, will accomplish this task;

Now, it is your turn, watch the video and listen to the word list, and then chose your word for 2014!
