Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

geee, what a start! encapsulating the year in one word...
for 2010 i choose the word expectation.
i kind of went through the year expecting things to change. fighting each battle, winning some, loosing others and at some point i seem to have lost my focus. it feels i was expecting for something that never came. a famous portuguese singer has a great line about this feeling, "it's like waiting for the train in the bus stop" ("como à espera do comboio na paragem do autocarro").
for 2011 i would love to be confidence.
i expect 2011 to be a very challenging year but hopefully a great one and i want to end it being a better and braver person. i really want to embrace what's coming with confidence.
