My word of the year is - Embrace
I've been thinking about this word for a couple of weeks and it seems to fit all of the things I hope to accomplish, both personally and business-wise for Love Elaine. And, by putting it out there for
Embrace OpportunityOpportunity can come in many different shapes, sizes and ways into your life. This year, I want to keep my eyes, ears and heart open to whatever opportunities come my way.
Embrace The MomentToo often with everything going on in my life, I forget to live.in.the.moment. As a born goal setter, I often overlook today in favor of a goal set for the future and miss out on the enjoyment of today. Not anymore!

Embrace ImperfectionsBeing a perfectionist to my core, having a handmade business has taught me so many things about that side of myself. I've spent hours tweaking something or completely remade an item that wasn't "perfect" to my uber-critial eye. And in the end, the only person who noticed the flaw was me. So, I'm slowly (hey, a girl's gotta start somewhere, right?!) learning that my best is good enough and that there is perfection in life's imperfections.

Embrace HappinessThis is a follow-up to the previous one, and by far the most important for me this year. While I'm mostly a happy and pleasant person, I DWELL on unreached expectations on almost a daily basis. Things that most people chalk up to "just life" can sometimes put me in a tailspin. Not this year. This year, I will choose to embrace happiness - laugh more, celebrate more, and just do more, just for me, just because it makes me happy.
Ok, so now its your turn. Have you ever had a "word" for a year as a theme? What's your word for 2012?
