I did choose 0NE word for 2012 back in January. I wasn't all official and part of the community, though. In fact, I really didn't even know there was one.
My word for 2012 was "gentleness."
I chose gentleness because it was something I wanted to be. Something I wanted to become.
Was I successful? I think I've made progress. I am definitely more thoughtful before I speak or act. I consider how my words or actions will affect others. I try to keep my temper reigned in.
You have been reading my posts over the course of the year. Maybe you can tell me. Have you seen a gentling?
