Gumption: Keyword for Winter

A couple of thank yous are in order.

To Joycelyn at for getting me into this whole seasonal keyword thing (and a multitude of other helpful ideas and processes).

To Steph at for her post that inspired this season’s new keyword. As Steph writes,

There are a lot of lessons in “The Holiday.” Two of them go hand-in-hand: (1) “be the leading lady of your own life” and (2) start by having some “gumption.” We need to speak up for ourselves when things don’t go how we want them to go; we need to tell someone when they’re hurting us; we need to fight for what we believe in and deserve.

Too many times in 2013, I was the best friend in so many situations, and I relinquished the role of leading lady in my own life. So my seasonal keyword will be gumption, with this movie clip at hand as my cue to remember. I will focus on embracing the shades of gumption and live my life more fully, more inline with the role I’m intended to play. I have a few ideas about what this might mean, and I will be exploring them here in the days ahead. Thanks for joining me in this journey.

What would you choose for your seasonal keyword?
