I've used this photo before, but it says so much to me about the word that encapsulated 2009 for me that I had to post it again. It's a photo of me leading an outdoor yoga practice in the middle of Wellington for a Day of Action on Climate Change.

My word for 2009 was:

Fear

Challenge

Stretch

Leap

Faith

Courage

PS: All the places in Exactly what you need are gone, but I still have plenty of Just what you need. Jump in. Start 2010 with courage, I can't tell you the wonderful places it might take you.

    Ok – I endeavour to start 2010 with courage. I thought 2009 needed quite a bit – but it looks like 2010 is going to require great doses! Will keep popping by… going confidently in the direction of my dreams and hope you are too.

    Oh wow. It would take real courage for me to do this yoga challenge – giggle – It’s funny where our fears come up isn’t it? Yup. Scared of yoga! Wish I could come there and you could teach me!!
    Tell me more! Have you decided on your word for 2010?!
