My word of the year 2012

Every year, Layla at The Lettered Cottage chooses a word of the year. It's a word she uses as inspiration for the year...kind of like a New Year's Resolution, but a lot easier to keep.  This year she's hosting a Word of Year Link Party, and I'm linking up to it!

Let me tell you this... choosing a word for the year is NOT easy. I started out with Thrive, but that didn't seem right. It's a good word, and I see some people have chosen it for their word of the year... Then I thought, well, I've been having some health issues...maybe my word should be healthy. No...that didn't fit how I was feeling either. I didn't want my focus to be limited to healthy things...

So I went onto and looked up the word Thrive on the thesaurus, and clicked on the word Flourish, which lead me to Enhance.

Ahhhhh....yes... that's my word.  Enhance.  It felt right.

So I clicked back over to the dictionary to find out the definition, and this is what I found. listed this as the definition of Enhance:


  [en-hans, -hahns]  Show IPA
verb (used with object), -hanced, -hanc·ing.
to raise to a higher degree; intensify; magnify: The candelight enhanced her beauty.
to raise the value or price of: Rarity enhances the worth of old coins.


Do you know why I like it so much? It's because it doesn't just focus on me or on one part of my life. Enhance encompasses so much more...

Enhance my life...
Enhance my home...
Enhance my enjoyment...
Enhance my friendships...
Enhance my relationship...

It doesn't mean I have to do anything drastic, even something small can make anything better.
