OneWord365: Revitalize

Every year the eAmbassadors like to join in the #oneword365 trend. Instead of coming up with a New Year’s Resolution, the idea is to pick a single word to shape your year by. Last year I chose Faith, and you can read that post here.

This year I’m choosing Revitalize, because almost every aspect of my life needs to be imbued with more energy and pizazz. I got the idea for my word from some late night pondering, which I of course documented on Twitter.

Also this is what my motivation to finish things looks like right now.

So that’s one reason why there hasn’t been anything new on here. Another is because, frankly, I don’t feel like myself these days, and the posts I’ve written –and discarded- have seem strained. I’m not really willing to upload posts that aren’t a representation of my authentic self (whoever she may be).

The semester is over for me, and I’m happy to be home for a few weeks. I’m still loving everything about Glendon as a school and a community, and I hope I’ll come back from this break well rested (hah!) and ready to take on a new semester with some energy and drive in me.

I hope that all of you reading this are having a safe and happy last month of 2015 so far. I should have a real post up soon. (I have one in progress in another window, so we’ll see where that goes.)
