My Word for the Year….


After seeing that Carolyn, over at This Talk Ain’t Cheap, was asking if us bloggers were choosing a Word of the Year, I was intrigued & rather quickly decided on MY special word that would be mine for 2013…..


I admit that this was chosen on a whim, I am now quite happy that this word popped into my mind as it certainly does indicate how I hope my attitude is towards life this year. I want to pursue this crazy yet awesome yet sometimes lonely yet often very exciting & rewarding hobby/job of BLOGGING & keeping Along Comes Mary here & in your face (in a good way!). I want to make more exciting opportunities happen. I want to not be afraid of attending school & making a degree happen. I want to wear my heart on my sleeve & keep looking for a significant other (Oy, I cannot believe I am still saying this…). I want to try to travel & get out there more..I have a perfect excuse….I need to BLOG & write great stories, no??;)
And, the only way for all this to occur is via one little word….persistence, my friends!

I must say, “Persistent” has stuck in my head since I was a teenager reading Seventeen Magazine. I read a fun fashion article by a college intern who modeled cute new outfits & reviewed them. It made me wonder how she became an intern at the top teen publication. Being the snail mailer I was back then, I decided to write this girl a letter & imagine my surprise when she answered me! She explained that the opportunity arised from her english professor at a Brooklyn junior college. She said if magazine writing/editing was a passion of mine, “Just be persistent” & chances would come my way, whether it be for magazines or newspapers.

Its exciting to think that a new year is upon us, maybe persistence will apply to something not even in my life yet, I hope for many adventures & annot wait to bring you all along for my ride:)
Have you ever thought of a word for the year? I would love to know! xo

    This is so great, Mary! I think persistence is a great word! I think my word would have to be strength! I need strength to keep the courage to put my life out there on the blog, raise my girls and do what is best for us!
    I wish you luck in getting a degree! It’s even harder to do when you have kids so get to it now!

  7. Nice words to live by! I need to give this some thought. I would really like to come up with a word. Thanks for sharing and getting me thinking!!

  12. I read 17 magazine too, we are dating ourselves! I would say impatient, and that’s not a good word for me!

  13. What a great post! We should all try to be persistent right? 🙂

  14. Haven’t really spent time narrowing down on one word but right now the word that comes to mind is resourceful/.. I want…need…to be more resourceful in more areas than one…esp with time!
