My Word for 2011

Last year's word for 2010 was CHOICE.


What is this year's word?  


This was a tough decision.  


There are so many great words to choose from.


Are you ready for it?




Prudence.    

\ˈprü-dən(t)s\


Definition:
The ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason.

According to Wikipedia, "Prudence" is characterized by “being careful about one’s choices, not taking undue risks, and not saying or doing things that might later be regretted.”
Individuals with PRUDENCE have the following attributes:

  • They take a foresighted stance toward their personal future, thinking and caring about it, planning for it, and holding long-term goals and aspirations.
  • They are skilled at resisting self-defeating impulses and at persisting in beneficial activities that lack immediate appeal.
  • They show a style of thinking about everyday life choices that is reflective, deliberate, and practical.
I am hoping to have PRUDENCE in the new year.

What's your word for 2011?

  2. Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
    Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
    The sun is up, the sky is blue
    It's beautiful and so are you
    Dear Prudence won't you come out to play

    Dear Prudence open up your eyes
    Dear Prudence see the sunny skies
    The wind is low the birds will sing
    That you are part of everything
    Dear Prudence won't you open up your eyes?

    Look around round round
    Look around round round
    Oh look around

    Dear Prudence let me see you smile
    Dear Prudence like a little child
    The clouds will be a daisy chain
    So let me see you smile again
    Dear Prudence won't you let me see you smile?

    Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
    Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
    The sun is up, the sky is blue
    It's beautiful and so are you
    Dear Prudence won't you come out to play

  11. Great word! It's obvious that you gave it a tremendous amount of thought. It will enhance every aspect of your life. My word is "simplify". By the way, you look absolutely terrific - you look like you FEEL terrific.
