What is your "one word" for 2013?

What is your “one word” for 2013?

This week’s Saturday Sidebar Question comes from World Moms Blog writer Alison.  She asked our writers,

“What is your one word of the year which is going to guide you like a beacon?”

Check out what some of our World Moms had to say…

Alison Lee of Malaysia writes:
“My One Word is Do.” More about it here.

Documama of USA writes:
Here is my post for the word of the year.”

Dainty Mom of Philippines writes:
Here is my post, which also links to my other new year-related posts on the blog.”

Jenna Farelyn of North Carolina, USA writes:
“I think I’ll take the metamorphosis word :)”

MamaMzunga of Kenya writes:
“Wow. This is a good thought exercise. I have a lot of trouble with the one word thing because I’m normally too verbose. But I guess it would have to be something like “breath” or “patience” or “relax.” See? I told you I’m too verbose! 😉 Maybe my one word should be “succinct” ;)”

Ms. V of South Korea writes:
“My one word is whole-hearted.”

RoxIsBrilliant of Nevada, USA writes:
“Last year it was focus. This year, the last of my twenties, I am going to follow the footsteps of Merida and be BRAVE.” Rox has blogged about it here.

Ruth Wong of Singapore writes:
“My word is COURAGE. I am not doing any new year resolutions or goals this year. Instead, I’m doing areas of FOCUS. The link to it is here.”

Susie Newday of Israel writes:
“My word: Be.”

Tina@TrulyRichMom of the Philippines writes: “My one word is actually made up of two words and is actually a “made up” word! {IN} COURAGE, a play on the word “ENCOURAGE.” 🙂 Read about it here.”

Nicole@SistersFromAnotherMister of USA writes:

“My word is EMBRACE.” Read more about it here.
