Word for the Year

to unite firmly 
become crystallized

This is the word I've chosen for 2011.  It represents a certain steadiness.  Clarity. 

Do you ever feel like you have too many irons in the fire?
I have felt this way many times.

  This year feels different.

It always helps me to write out my goals for the new year.
It feels like a fresh start and gives a greater sense of purpose.
I am excited about this year.

   Having several irons in the fire can be a good thing.  Passion and creativity are powerful forces.  They keep us moving forward and excited about life.  Focusing on a few of those irons is where I'm at right now. 

It's steadier.  More certain.
 Feels right.
Focused passion is a powerful thing.

I can't wait to see what 2011 will bring!
Clarity, unity and solidity are looking good this year.

That's a fabulous New Year word. Last year was my year of solidifying everything I do. I cut out things that were making me unhappy and added on things that made me happy. It was a good year!

I like how you put this! Like you've found your focus. My word is Thrive but I just haven't posted about it.
