One little word| 2012

For the past few years Ali Edwards has encouraged people to choose one little word that inspires/ignites you for the upcoming year.  I have done it for the last two years and it actually does serve as a reminder and guide as you move through particular life seasons.  My one little word for this year is: Begin.

: to do the first part of an action  
: go into the first part of a process 
: to come into existence : to have a starting point
: to do or succeed in the least degree 
: to set about the activity of 
: to bring into being 
This is the year I will BEGIN to be a Mom for the first time. This is the year that I BEGIN to take JenyPenny Design & Shop JenyPenny to a place that I can support my family.  This is the year that I will stop being afraid of HTML and BEGIN to use the skills I have. This is the year I will BEGIN to use Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator like a master. This is the year I will get over any fears I have (read: quite a few) and just BEGIN.

Do you have one little word?
