I've been noticing several bloggers have been coming up with one word resolutions for the new year.

Some I saw were:  love, peace, joy, patience, health, sanity (I liked that one a lot!), listen, focus, release, forgive, seek, build, moderation.  Ohhhh the list goes on and on.

So I was at "the day job" today trying to think of a good word to focus on for 2010. Then all of a sudden the word "PUSH" came to mind!  I thought, yep, that's gonna be my word this year!
The word push means to apply pressure against for the purpose of moving.  
To move (an object) by exerting force against it - thrust or shove.
To force (one's way).
To urge forward or urge insistently; pressure.

To extend or enlarge.

To advance despite difficulty or opposition; press forward.
To expend great or vigorous effort.

Push on:  To continue or proceed along one's way

"Cause when push comes to shove,
you taste what you're made of.
You might bend till you break,
cause it's all you can take.
On your knees, you look up,
decide you've had enough.
You get mad, you get strong,
wipe your hands, shake it off.
and you stand . . ."

What about YOU? Did you come up with a word to live by for the new year?

Good for you! The first word that came to mind after reading your post was "enough." I'm going to have to set up my "enough" ideology for the year.

I didn't plan on having any word or even a resolution, but after reading your blog today, I've decided mine will be "APPRECIATE". I do appreciate the time, effort and skills you put into GOT ART? and look forward to it, again and again. YOU are the BEST.

Hmmm....my initial reaction for my personal word is "release". Release pain, both emotional and physical, mental barriers, love....you have me thinking!

I hope to try lots of new things this year.

"push" is a great word for a resolution. Actually it is one I should apply to myself. I constantly need to "push" myself.

I think in my case though, I will go with "focus" I tend to get scattered way too often!

Great post Sherry!

Well, I decided that I needed a word also...it didn't immediately come to me...but as I was out and about yesterday, it popped into my head.f..RICH. Not "neccessarily" monitarily (though that wouldn't hurt...hehe), but rather in the value and quality...in relationships, work, my art, etc.

Hmmm, I guess if I had to choose one it would be sleep since that's what I'm always lacking, lol!

No seriously I believe my word for the year is inspiration... I love being and helping others to be.
