Word For The Year vs Thought For The Year

I mulled over my 'word' for the year for days and days now.
Well...OK...more like hours and hours now.
(what can I say...I work better under pressure!)

And I came up with a 'thought' rather than a word.


Let's face it...
life does not wait for us and
time is moving at the speed of light.


“Life is Short, Break the Rules,
Forgive Quickly, Kiss SLOWLY,
Love Truly, Laugh Uncontrollably
and NEVER regret ANYTHING
that makes you smile.”Mark Twain


I'm looking forward to 2013
and doing all the 'good things'
I get a chance to do.
