Did you choose a word for 2013?


Dreams imagined, using two of Kim Klassen's Ultimate textures and whimsical brushes.
Originally uploaded by bluebirdsandteapots

I chose the word "Dream" for me in 2013. As in follow that dream, dream, imagine, create.
In 2011 I chose Shine, in 2012 Listen.
Friends in 2013 have selected Peace, 2 have selected Health, one has chosen Redeemed. These are to give you ideas for your own word.
"A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." Proverb 16:9
My oh so funny cousin chose Rutabaga last year and said it didn't work out so good so I suggested he consider Kohlrabi this year.
If you choose a word for the year or make a resolution, I would love you to share it here.
Have fun and blessings in 2013.

Dream is a very good word to take into the new year, for without dreams, reality cannot happen. It is what keeps us going forward when we feel like we cannot take another step. Excellent word! Happy New Year, sweet lady. May all your dreams come true!

Deborah Jean at Dandelion House said...

I'm choosing...the word " choose". I was inspired by a post Susan Branch wrote this am...about small ways to bring our dreams down out of the clouds...My word/S for last year ( and previous years ) was DREAM BIG !
Love this idea...Happy New Year!

Laurie said...

Hi Terra! My word for this year is Forgiveness. Last year was Faith. God Bless You and your family in this New Year, I look forward to your coming posts!

I think mine will be "Passion". I believe that you need passion to really appreciate, understand and give to others.
I also like "commitment". It's another meaning I need to work on.
Happy New Year, C.

I haven't picked a word. I have in the past and never quite got around to working on it. Peace is a good word, our world needs a lot of that!

Dream is a wonderful word. My word for the year is believe.
Smiles, Dottie

I've chosen the word trust.

Daisy said...

Rutabaga/Kohlrabi made me laugh. :-) Dream seems like a good choice. Wishing you all the best in 2013!

I like your idea of a word...but I've already chosen a Scripture for 2013. I posted it on my blog, but will share it here too.

"Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as unwise and witless, but as wise, sensible, intelligent people. Make the very most of the time, buying up each opportunity . . . Therefore, do not be vague and thioughless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is" Ephesians 5:15-17 (Amplified Bible)


I think I'll also dream along with you. I like that word.

I chose two words, anticipation and thankfulness.

Have a lovely 2013.

Your word is perfect! I am still thinking of what would be a good word to inspire me.

I hope your holidays were wonderful, Terra, and thanks always for your visits to my blog! :)

XO,
Jane

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

What a neat idea! I think if I chose one it would be Grateful.
Hope you have a wonderful New Year.
Love

Catherine said...

That is a wonderful word! I chose a 'thought' for this year. Wishing you a fantastic 2013!

Lynda said...

I have never picked a word for the year but if I had one or two that are similar they would be Goals/Projects. Since I just retired, I have a long list of things I would like to accomplish around our home!

Carol Z said...

My word is (En)joy. I want to be able to feel joy in all that the world offers and share it with those I care about. Wishes for a happy, healthy and joyous year!

Blessed Serendipity said...

I hope most of your dreams come true. Dreams are good. They give us something to look forward to, to wish for, to imagine, to find hope in. Happy new year!

BumbleVee said...

Happy New Year Terra..... your cousin sounds like a hoot!

I'm so not analytical...or deep ... or spiritual...... I love his choice.... wonder if I could come up with something ...not necessarily a vegetable, you understand...but, something more fun than many...
Health is just too mundane...I try so hard at it all the time and have no luck anyway it seems ...so I just go with whatever happens and try to figure out what to do with it.... a syndrome called Ehlers Danlos gets in my way.

Maybe a word involving fun..... that's always good....I could use more humour and fun in my life some days .... I'll ruminate on that ....

Denise said...

I like your word, my word for 2013 is healing.

rosaria williams said...

Happy New Year!
Goals that are loudly embraced usually will remain priorities for us. Health is the only one I want to stay focused on.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I have chosen "yes" and "joy"... but am thinking very much of "forward". Can't quite hone myself down to one yet! ;) Last year I chose "embrace". I love your word, "dream"... full of possibilty and hope. Wishing you all the best in 2013. blessings ~ tanna

Crystal Mary said...

To dream is to have a vision, and that is good,
I suppose my word would be Peace.. I pray it is a peaceful happy year for my hubby, myself and our families..
Happy New Year and Love Crystal x

Blessings to you in the new year.

I have no special word of resolutions for the new year, but I enjoy reading what others are doing. Interesting stuff. My saying for this year is, "All you can do, is all you can do. And that's enough."

Julene said...

I have chosen a work but haven't put it in written form, yet. The word is "listen!" Dream is a wonderful word for your year! I will be back to see what dreams come your way!

koralee said...

Now that is a good word....I picked a phrase...."do not go fast"
Hope you are enjoying the first few days of the New Year my friend!

Katherine at Terra Beadworks said...

Hi Terra: I'm late getting here but loved reading what everyone's Word for 2013 is. I am choosing OPEN for my word. Open to making beautiful artwork every day. Open to being the best I can in every way. All the best dreams for 2013!

Food, Fun and Life in the Charente said...

I had not chosen a word, but as we get older I think my word would be Health. Happy dreaming 2013 to you. Diane

I am trying to close the comments on this post because someone is posting hundreds of spam comments, which you don't see because I remove each one. That's why I have comment moderation.
So if comments are closed for this post that is why.

Simone said...

That's funny that I have also chosen my word for the year and mine is "creativity". Hope your year is a wonderful one.

I love the word Dream...it means so much! This year I've chosen, Believe! Sweet hugs!
