WOTY - adversity

Word Origin and History for adversity
n.
c.1200, aduersite "misfortune, hardship, difficulty," from Old Frenchaversit√© "adversity, calamity, misfortune; hostility, wickedness, malice"(Modern French adversit√©), from Latin adversitatem (nominativeadversitas"opposition," from adversus (see adverse ).

Ok, so I will be the first one to admit that "adversity" is a strange word to pick, not the normal uplifting vibe that most want for their word, but for me it fits. I'm a kind of a glass half full kinda gal who doesn't try to let myself get down in the dumps when faced with a challenge or a "bump in the road"...sure, adversity, it happens to all of us but it's how we react to those circumstances that controls who we are.

Now if I could just overcome writing in a straight line, sheesh, I'm even using a straight edge and I manage to still be crooked. lol
