Dec 17, 2009: Word to describe this year

I`ve been thinking about this a lot today- what word best describes 2009? Perhaps hope, joy, interesting, travel, love, life, laugh, active…?  So many words out there to describe the year, but the one that I believe summarizes the way I feel about 2009, is  settled.

It is rare for me to say that I feel settled.  For those who know me, you know that I like to be on the move- literally and figuratively.  I like knowing that I have plans in the works- travel plans, life plans, career plans, any plans.

Amid 3 moves in 1 year (within Vancouver), saying goodbye to a startup business and saying hello to a new job, traveling to Panama, Israel, PEI, Seattle, Portland, Victoria, the Interior, and the Island- I can still say that I feel settled.  Settled mentally and emotionally in ways that I have not experienced in a long time.  I feel settled in the present, in knowing that I have found a place to live that fits me and of course feeling settled in the partner I have found to share in all of this.
