I went through and counted my posts from 2012.

It didn’t take very long.

I’ve been a little sad that this little blog has been so quiet since I had a baby (over a year (!) ago). Of course my children take priority over my blog, but still…a little sad. I’ve decided that 2013 will not be so quiet.

I thought of doing a “Best Of 2012″ post for this blog, but you could get the same effect, or better, by simply scrolling down my recent posts for fifteen seconds. That’s borderline lame.

Instead, I’m looking forward.

I’ve jumped on the “Word of the Year” bandwagon. I’ve put some thought into it, and here’s my pick:

Word of the year 2013

One short word, bursting with three syllables.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The world belongs to the energetic.”

I want that to be me.

I’ve already set some concrete goals for the coming year, but this word will lay over the top – something that will flavor every moment, even when I’m not working on any specific goal.

Do you choose a word for the year? What is it?
