  • Are you choosing a Word for the Year?

    Posted by Kelly on January 4, 2022 at 12:54 pm

    I always do, and I’m behind on my thought process.

    I just gave myself a moment and WE blossomed.

    I’m going to give it a little more time and see if that sprouts ;)

    How about you?

    My word of the year is acceptance. I struggled a lot with my health and getting used to my “new normal” the last two years. I am starting this year with a better frame of mind so that I can move forward in life with acceptance.

    Acceptance is a lovely word, with so much invitation! Surrendering to what is so that you can build what’s possible from there – I like it!

    Yes!

    My word for 2022 is Thrive :)

    I want to grow into who I’m meant to be this year, bettering myself and flourishing in every area of my life – personally, professionally, financially and spiritually.

    THRIVE is wonderful!

    Do you like to create or buy something that signify and be reminded of your word?

    Last year I bought a constellation necklace to wear.

    I’m thinking about ordering a ring or bracelet with WE on it.

    My Word for 2022 is CHOICES, as I have created a life with so many choices I’ve realized I need to be more aware of what I choose in the moment. Last year was a turning point for me, personally and professionally. I was deciding between returning to school to earn a PhD in economics, an area I’m passionate about, or pursuing television writing after selling two spec scripts. I’ll let you decide which one you think I chose!

    LOL! I can see you doing either one so now I’m super curious!!

    We talked about choices today in the mastermind – I’m more in touch with my choices and my why behind them than ever before. Love the topic and love the word for you.

    I’ve never really thought about it until now! LOL That’s a great idea! Searching Etsy now ;)

    Thanks for the idea Kelly! (Love your word for this year!)

    I chose reinvent for this year because I’m trying to reinvent myself after leaving the classroom. Thankfully, I’ve had a career-based identity outside of being a teacher, so this will not be as difficult for me as it is for those who have never done anything else.

    I LOVE everyone’s words you’ve chosen, and I resonate with most of them. 💚 I can completely be on board with everyone’s choice of words and actually see how they fit you.

    I chose not to choose one this year.

    I’ve chosen one for the last several years, but I’ve always struggled a bit with the idea of narrowing down my year to a word. There’s something inside me that always rises up and says “choose? ONE? word? – But I love all the words!”

    I understand the concept of choosing, but I’ve decided it just doesn’t work for me. I’m a sampler of ideas and experiences. I’m designed that way and I love that about me.

    Besides, I’m feeling such potential for expansion and creativity for the coming year that I couldn’t BEGIN to narrow it down to just one word. I’m instead putting my creative bucket out in the rain of ideas and allowing the words to fill it up as I go.

    Here are just a few of the ones I’ve collected so far:

    • Possibility
    • Imagination
    • Curiosity
    • Wonder
    • Optimism
    • Exploration
    • Forgiveness
    • Remembering
    • LOVE

    I’ve been through some tough stuff over the last few months, finally understanding what people mean when they talk about “the long goodbye” and I’ve learned to find the blessings in the middle of the suffering.

    Suprisingly, that has made me even more optimistic and determined to live in joy, not less so.

    Good for you, trust yourself! There were a few years when I chose three words that meshed together :)
