At first, I chose QUINTESSENTIAL. I like the idea of getting things down to their essence and getting to the core of who I am really, and plus it's a really pretty word :D
Then, GIVE popped into my head just after Christmas and I really resonated with it and went back and forth wondering if I should change it. When I heard that Ali's word was GIFT, that was it I changed :D
Then, last week after posting 'my best year ever' LO (full layout is below) and having some chats online DO jumped into my life and it was everywhere. I thought of switching again, but I really like GIFT and I liked the idea of having the same word as Ali, especially as it came around by complete chance. I resisted for days and I finally gave it :D
I like DO because it's both a noun and a verb, which I actually discovered accidentally when I commented about liking that a friend's word was both. But, I have to say I like the action part of DO, it's motivating and exciting! And, just maybe I'll go to some fancy DO and wear my hair in an up DO :D
Please share your word in the comments, and how you came to choose it.
