One Word: Change

I’m participating in #Reverb10 which  is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. Everyday there is a new blog post prompt to respond to! More info: http://www.reverb10.com

Today’s: December 1 One Word.
Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

 

Change is my word.

This year has been a YEAR full of changes for me. I became PRSSA President, I gained SO much knowledge from working on different campaigns, I truly fell in love, I found my real friends, I had my first surgery, I’ve lost people and I’ve created my own online presence.

I’ve really changed a lot and done a lot of personal growing. I’m proud of myself for changing! Change is hard sometimes, but I’m learning to embrace it and go with it!


The word I would like to capture me for 2011 is Inspirational.

I want to be more inspirational to other upcoming students as I am a senior. I want to inspire in others the passion I have for PR and social media.

I also want to be more inspired by my peers around me and enjoy more things in life everyday!

  1. Isn’t it funny how when everything is changing is when we seem to learn the most about ourselves? I love that in 2011 you want to take on a more of a leadership approach to inspire others. Your junior and senior year of college is such a great time to separate yourself from your peers, yet most students are more content coasting with Senoritis right up until the end when their thesis is due and they decide they want a job waiting on them when they graduate. Kudos to you and thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Ryan! I’ve changed SO much and learned so much about myself this past year. Everything is different now and it’s not a bad thing!

      I’m definitely trying to separate myself and not fall into the Senoritis at all! Thanks for reading :]

  3. I love this idea — thanks for bringing it to everyone’s attention! I have to say, I think my word for 2010 would have to be “evolve.” 2009 was full of change, and 2010 has been a year of living through those changes, letting them seep in and affect my life.

    For 2011, I’d love to see the word “fulfill” encompass the year, a time when all this changing and evolving comes to fruition.

    1. Hi Noel!

      Evolve is SUCH a good word! That actually more accurately describes me in 2010. I also like your ‘fulfill’ word for 2011! Let’s roll on with the changes and acceptance!

  5. I love the use of change. I almost used it myself. For me, we only grow when we change. Changing our routine, our way of thinking helps us learn and grow. It challenges what has undoubtedly become routine.

    1. Hi Julia!

      I definitely agree that we only grow when we change, nothing can stay exactly the same forever! Sometimes the changes are hard, but we must go with them. Thanks for reading!

  6. PS — I started working on #reverb10 on my personal blog thanks to you (I gave you a little shout out there too)! Thanks again–I am LOVING it! 🙂
