As a means of christening the New Year and, of course, keeping up with what’s hot in the Student Affairs Twittersphere, I’m choosing One Word to define my 2012. I am not going to lie and say that I do not have a resolution; I do. It is to use mouthwash twice everyday. “Mouthwash”, however, is not exactly what I expect will define my year. Although dental hygiene is very important and my mouth feels cleaner already.
What will likely define my year, however, is change. So Change is my One Word for 2012. I figure that is what is going to happen regardless, so I might as well choose it and own it before it sneaks up on me. As you know, I like change. I think that it’s important and I’m a big advocate for social change. But I think that my challenge this year is going to be embracing personal change. Like graduating, getting a job, moving away from my home for the past 6 years, being a grown up, and other very serious things of that nature.
So, there you have it. Change. The tide in my life is moving and I can either catch it or get all swept up and end up with seaweed in my hair and sand in my mouth….you get the picture.
