Word For Year Is 13

I want to make my life simple this year, so my word for the coming year is the number "13". This number represents 13 words of a mantra I plan to follow in 2012, hoping to be a better person by the time we get to 2013.

So I'm living this year by "13", standing for thirteen words of a little diddy my Grandmother used to say:

Use it up
Wear it out
Make it do, or,
You do without

I'm putting my word 'out there' this year by joining up with Layla's This Little Word Of Mine party at The Lettered Cottage. I hope you will join the party too because I'd love to see what word you've chosen to live this year by.


  1. 13~I love it!

    I hope you'll come see my word.

    Be blessed!

  2. I love 13. It is a lucky number in Italy *wink!*

    1. Wonderful mantra, my grandmother said that too! Blessings on a lucky 13 for your new year.

  3. I love your word and the meaning behind it! Happy 13!

  4. The world would be a better place if we all lived by that mantra! Good for you! ~ Maureen
