Laura: What Were Your Top Words of 2010?

Last week I shared an epiphany that came to me: Your future is only as big as you dare to dream.

If you have big dreams for your future (I know you do!), have you taken a careful look at your words/thoughts/actions to make sure they are in line with what you are dreaming about?

As I was reviewing my Facebook apps, I came across an app called “Top 10 Words of 2010”.  I remembered installing it several months ago.   I thought it would be neat to review my Top 10 Words in 2010 one more time, to see if they in any way helped shape where I am in 2011.  While we may not be able to control everything that comes our way, we can control our attitude.  I have found many trials I have faced have helped shape me into the person that I am today. It’s difficult to feel grateful and hopeful when we are in the midst of a painful situation, which is why I think it’s so important to recite positive words/phrases and be gentle to ourselves as we get through those times.   

Here are my top 10 words used on Facebook in 2010, along with an analysis of each word.
