word of the year - better

After thinking for a long time about what my word of the year will be, I finally decided it would be Better. I would like 2013 to be a better year than 2012. Not that 2012 was a bad year, I just want what we all want and that is for things to be better.
I also would like to be a better wife, a better daughter, a better sister, a better mom and a better friend. In today's crazy, busy world, I think we sometimes forget about the things that are most important to us - relationships.
I would like to be a better designer, a better illustrator, a better artist. I've done pretty good, maybe even good, but I know I can do better. Why not aspire to be great, rather than just good? I'd like to try for that.
And lastly, I want to be a better person. Kinder and more understanding. Helpful and never hurtful. I would love to see the world be a better place to live. If we all aspire to be better and do better, what a wonderful gift to the world that would be.
Wishing you all a BETTER 2013!
