reverb 10 {day 1}

you know i love a project, right? well, i just learned about reverb 10 from a post over at ali edwards' blog. what is it? in their words:
Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what's happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10, we'll do both.
i'm going to try to participate as close to daily as possible. but i also am shooting for (close to) daily posts about the christmas season. so, i'll do what i can! let's get started...

december one: 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?

well, my "one little word" for the year began as strive but was changed to balance. looking back, i can't say that either of those words really describes how my year shook out. i think i needed balance, but i never got there. i think the better word would be adjustment. we experienced some pretty big things with spencer that took adjusting on our part, as parents. then later, he began middle school...more adjustments. as with all small children, coleman's needs and abilities have changed, requiring us to be flexible. but the one, largest adjustment was work-related. i had to adjust to a new schedule, new demands, and new responsibilities. i'm still working on it.

i'm nor committing quite yet, but right now i'm feeling that my 2011 one word might be focus. i feel like i've managed to rid my life of  some time-sucking activites. however, i still feel like things are under control. next year, i want to focus on what's important. pinpoint the things that matter and focus my time, energy and heart there.
