Words for 2011

I’ve done that thing where I don’t blog in forever and then I want to catch up on the things that are important. Into the third day of the second month of the new year, I’m not sure that’s going to be possible.

Without looking at the dates on my blog (and I’m writing this onto evernote on my iphone) I can’t remember that last time I posted anything. I especially can’t remember the last time I posted anything substantial.

So, rather than try to give everyone a long, drawn-out post catching you up, I’m going to do a “words” post… sort of in reverse. The way it’s supposed to work is that I pick three words and choose them to guide my year. What I’ve done is picked three words that describe last year… or rather, that ended up being important last year.

Here they are:

  • diverticulitis
  • hysterectomy
  • self-sabotage

The first is a disease that has changed my focus and with which I’m battling on a continued basis; I got the diagnosis midway through the year.

The second is a word describing a procedure that hasn’t happened yet, but will happen this year.

The third is something I’ve realized is a bigger problem in my life than I ever thought.

There. You’re caught up.

See you soon.
