We are winding down with 2014 and getting ready for 2015. Every year I choose a Word of the Year. I embrace that word as much as possible, creating little bits of art with the word, spending time thinking about the word, journaling about the word, living the word. Many of you probably do the same thing every year, choosing a word or a phrase. It really is just a way to guide you through the year, and direct your attention where you want it.
I find it interesting how the word creeps into your life without you even thinking about it. And when you DO think about it, then it is even more powerful.
I know the word I need will find me. So over the next few weeks I will be noticing where my thoughts go, what words or phrases grab my attention, what direction I’d like to go in the upcoming year. I’ll jot them down and then spend some time thinking about these words and why each one might be a good choice for 2015. The right word will speak to me. How do you choose your word of the year?
This year my word was JOY. I wanted to focus on the joy of everyday life, and so I did. Over the past few years my words have been: focus, seek, play, explore, joy………perhaps one of these words will be your word in 2015. They were all good words for me.
Stay tuned for my 2015 Word of the Year coming soon. I hope you will join me and share your Word of the Year.
