One Little Word....

My one little word for this year...

Our life is frittered away by detail... Simplify, simplify, simplify! ... Simplicity of life and elevation of purpose. - Henry David Thoreau

simplify [ˈsɪmplɪˌfaɪ]
verb -fies, -fying, -fied (tr)
1. to make less complicated, clearer, or easier
2. (Mathematics) Maths to reduce (an equation, fraction, etc.) to a simpler form by cancellation of common factors, regrouping of terms in the same variable, etc.
[via French from Medieval Latin simplificāre, from Latin simplus simple + facere to make]

As I thought about what word I wanted to embrace this year simplify seemed to reverberate most deeply within me. Not sure where this word will take me this year, but I'm looking forward to it.
