my word for 2013 and a giveaway!

As I look back on this past year, what stands out to me is the intensity of my commitments - be it to my marriage, my coaching business, my part-time job - I went all-in on a LOT of things this year. And what I realized is that when you're going all-in everywhere, your bets get spread thin.

What I want for 2013 is to trim the fat, cleanse the clutter and step into a more vibrant life for myself. What I want for 2013 is to SHINE.

As I came up with this word, I realized that it was less about the doing and more about letting my brilliance come through - without all of the stuff that can dull my day-to-day life - the stuff that leads me to feel tired, overworked, and slightly depressed.

I'm ready to move beyond that, into my shine.

In honor of this, I'm giving away one of my hand-made "Shine on, you crazy diamond!" posters - pictured above! I made this poster at a recent letterpress class (I've fallen back in love with letterpress btw!)

To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know your word for 2013, or if you don't believe in this little tradition and just want a free poster, let us know your favorite word ever. Comment by 10am PST on Friday, January 4. A winner will be drawn at random ~ International peeps, you're welcome to enter too!

What are you ready for more of in 2013?

**Update: Thank you all for entering and congratulations to Susie Seitz-King for winning the poster giveaway! Susie, please email me with your address and the poster will be on its way to you.
