There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.
- Henry David Thoreau
My word for 2011 is value.
I want this year to be about exploring values. I want to identify what is valuable to me financially, emotionally, ethically and in my physical space and surroundings so that I can discard what is truly not important.
I want to simplify and focus and enjoy and discover and journey and all those other pretty artsy words too. Maybe along the way I'll find value and be able to move on to something else before the year is up.
But right now, I'm all about evaluating and then taking action. That's what's valuable to me.
It's a place to start.
