Bulger's Beat: Website helps you keep your word on resolution

New Year's resolutions are easy to make and sometimes even easier to break. But one Nashville woman believes she has the answer to help make your resolution actually happen.

Alece Ronzino says resolutions this time of year should not be about what you want to do, but more about what you want to be or become.

Her idea is just choose one word and make that word your plan for the rest of the year.

"Simplicity, generous, thrive, brave, organized, steadfast, discipline," Ronzino said.

One word: that's what her website, OneWord365.com, wants from you this year. It's a revolution in resolutions that she started four years ago.

"In 2009, I made my own personal decision to stop New Year's resolutions and choose just one word," Ronzino said.

Her word was "risk," so she took one, committing her spare time to the website, well aware that she'd lose money doing it, and she does.

But she's adamant that one word can change lives. And, now, thousands of people worldwide sign up every year.

"To see other people grab onto this, that excites me and encourages me and makes me feel like I'm part of something very bigger than myself," she said.

The One Word 365 site helps track your commitment and progress all year. You can blog or connect with others who share your same word.

It's an easy way to follow through on your resolution.

"Because there is even power in just saying it out loud, telling other people what you want to focus on and who you want to become," Ronzino said. "It's really about living with intention every single day."

If you already are thinking your word would likely be "indecisive" or "non-committal," here's your chance to step up a bit. Go to the OneWord365.com and maybe "decisive" can be your new resolution.
