After seeing these TED talks
I though a lot about these ideas and realized that the pursuit of happiness and well being is not dependent on acquiring but on acceptance. Happiness as it turns out is not to be found, but synthesized.
So my word for this year is MAKE DO.
It's not only about finding happiness but about really thinking about the choices I make, about gratitude for everything good in my life, about finding creative solutions, about living in the moment, slowing down, about appreciating and accepting and in the end about creating a life of simplicity, serenity and balance.
