Following a Laura Lippman tradition

She reminds me, and others, by her own example, to choose a one-word resolution for the new year. 

Before choosing my 2020 word, I went back into my Meanderings and Muses archives to find last year's word, which you can read below.  I think I did a pretty good job of keeping it close most of the year.  

I'm hoping I can do as well with this year's word.

I've chosen MOVE.

I spent a lot of 2019 being sedentary. I'm now feeling the effects - too heavy, too stiff, ugh.

Time to start moving. AND past time to start cutting back on chips and milkshakes!

Wish me luck!

Another New Year's A-comin'

Laura Lippman is a writer I admire. 

Additionally, she's a woman I admire. 

And each year she reminds me, and others, by her own example, to choose a one-word resolution for the new year. 

Reading the words that others have chosen is always something I look forward to and enjoy. 

And it's always a bit of a challenge for me to come up with a word that I might actually be able to observe and follow. 

My word for 2019 is savor. 

I want to try to remember to savor the good things in my life. 

While I will not stop fighting and speaking out against the things I do not savor, I want to be more respectful to the goodness I am blessed with.

Here's wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Oh, I think you did an excellent job with savor! You really seemed to take time to appreciate your life.

Good luck with move. I did get a treadmill, not to lose weight, but to work on my stamina. But, stamina is a boring word. I'm a joy sort of person, but I think my word my be delight in 2020.

Lesa, no one I know delights in life more than you! You, sister dear, are an inspiration to me and many others.

Move and stamina ARE boring words! LOL! But, important.

It will be interesting this time next year to see how we feel about how we did.

Love you!
