this is my word for 2011.
My One Little Word if you will.

i tried living by one little word 3 years ago but life derailed me.

this year i want to emerge from that wreckage - caused by trial and error, mega-bad choices, death, depression.
this year my intentions are to emerge from the paralyzation charo's death caused.
emerge from the anxiety that runs my life since making the choice to leave my ex-husband 3 years ago.
emerge from the fear that at any moment something will happen to change my life sending me into a tailspin ending in despair and hoplessness.

i want to be that person again that thought she could do something extraordinary.
not thought...

i want to be that person that didn't have to fight every day to feel happy, creative, vibrant.
that didnt fear what was behind the corner, but welcomed it with exhilaration and enthusiasm.

–verb (used without object), e·merged, e·merg·ing.
1. to come forth into view or notice, as from concealment or obscurity
2 come up or arise, as a question or difficulty.
3. to come into existence; develop.
4. to rise, as from an inferior or unfortunate state or condition.

I am committed to becoming extraordinary again - to emerging from my perceived obscurity.
I've also put on my calendar to revisit this word the 10th of every month and create something (maybe not as extensive as this wall piece!) to meditate about my intention.

What's your One Little Word?

    Thank you for sharing this. It is quite powerful and emotional and raw. You have inspired me.

    Powerfully said Lara. I'm in a similar place to where you were 3 years ago. It just makes you feel so defeated. You desire to emerge is inspiring.
