In mid December, my friend Dodie suggested cholesterol as a good word for 2013, which I poo poo'd despite having just gotten back my blood work that showed borderline high LDL. Then the next week, her husband had a heart attach. Yup, that was a reality check. I saw the wisdom of this word immediately and decided to focus on this very specific thing in 2014. Why not? I haven't been too successful with broader words in the past year so this one is spot on. Time to get my numbers down, which should help all around. Stay tuned and wish me luck.
