President Monson's ABC's

During the past week I've enjoyed the following posts from Middle-aged Mormon Man, one of my favorite bloggers.  In this one about his New Year's Goals, he introduced his idea of creating an acronym from his new goals.  In this later one he talked about inviting his family to do the same during a Family Home Evening.  I thought this was a clever idea, and decided that my goals or theme for this year could possibly be summed up by  these three words:

                               Read           
                               Art
                               Write

                                             or possibly

                                Write
                                Art
                                Read

but neither of these acronyms lends itself to great artistic creativity, nor do I have access to Photoshop. 



Anyway, the interesting thing is that I then happened to read President Monson's 1st Presidency Message, Living the Abundant Life, where he has challenged us to live the Abundant Life by following these ABC's:

             Attitude - do your best and choose to be happy
             Believe - in yourself, in others, and eternal principles
             Courage - face challenges with courage

Just thought it was interesting.  So, do you have an acronym for 2012?
