My word/motto for 2013



The awesome blogger and runner rUnladylike posed this question – What word do you want to define your 2013? Our family has decided that our motto would be “All is serene in 2013.”  When I thought about it, I want that to be my defining word as well.

Serene means calm, peaceful, and untroubled.  With all of the medical issues that I had last year as well as those with others in my extended family, 2012 was anything but serene.  We are aiming to approach our challenges this year with serenity.

When I run, especially when I run long, I enjoy the calm, peace and serenity I feel from being in nature.  The picture above was taken in a place called Serenity Lake.  It reminds me of a few of the places where I have run.  In fact, I started and ended my 6 mile run last weekend next to one of my favorite lakes.  It looks sort of like this one in the spring and summer months.

I intend to approach my challenges this year as serene as possible.  Hopefully, I won’t end up yelling like George Costanza – SERENITY NOW!!! LOL!

Have you chosen a word to define you this year?  Does your family aim to live by a motto?

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! “The future is not something we enter. The future is something we create.” by Leonard I.
