In the 2011 Happiness Challenge, the theme for the month is Resolutions, and the last video suggested that we select a one-word theme for the year.
I watched the video, but at the time I didn’t think much about it.
This morning, I had a happiness-reducing experience, and the theme for this year floated into my mind: “Maintain”
If things work out as planned, this is going to be a busy, busy year. If I don’t maintain, next year, which might be even worse, will start with a deficit.
Maintain does not imply that there will not be growth, but that the growth will build on a well-maintained environment.
