A friend of mine challenged her writing friends to sum up their 2012 goals in one word. My word wasn’t hard to come up with. Its a word that, I feel, defines my life and one I turn to for inspiration, hope and comfort.

My word is:

Believe in myself, believe in my talent, believe my dreams will come true. That’s my motto. My word. In the summer, after my husband’s accident, I clung to this word. I BELIEVED he would get better and I BELIEVED in the prayers being sent his way. When things get me down, when my writing career stalls or heads in the wrong direction, I think of this word and it pumps me up.

I BELIEVE good things will happen to me.

What is the one word that sums up your goals for this year?
