One Little Word 2017

For several years I chose one word to focus on for the ensuing year.

2011 – clarity

2012 – contentment

2013 – sing

2014 – forward

 

Forward turned out to be a great word for 2014.  I wrote in One Little Word 2014

It is time to move forward and make a new plan and a new reality.

and that is exactly what happened in 2014.

I forgot all about One Little Word in 2015 & 2016.  Now that I am busy blogging and reading more blogs again, though, I saw it mentioned and began considering what word might be appropriate for 2017.

As the author of the One Little Word blog post explains:

And what do you do with this one little word?
You live with it. You invite it into your life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities.

 

My Word Choice for 2017 is:  Open

Open eyes

Open ears

Open mind

Open heart

 

What is your word for 2017?

One Little Word 2014

Over the past several years I have chosen one word to focus on for the ensuing year.

Previous year’s words have been clarity, contentment and sing. I will continue to focus on “sing” in 2014 as I found it to be extremely helpful to me last year and an aid to some much needed emotional and physical healing.

This year’s word was easy to choose and came to me without much effort:

Forward.

Forward thinking.

Forward planning.

Forward motion.

I’ve spent too long wishing for and then lamenting the loss of the plan I had for certain areas of my life. Towards the end of 2013 I finally accepted that that particular vision is not going to happen.

It is time to move forward and make a new plan and a new reality.

One Little Word 2013

For the past two years I have chosen one word to focus on for the ensuing year.

As the author of the “One Little Word” blog posts explains:

And what do you do with this one little word?
You live with it. You invite it into your life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities.

In 2011 my word was clarity. Last year, 2012, I chose contentment.

This year I had a more difficult time finding the right word. I considered several, but none seemed to “speak” to me, none, that it, until I thought of the word sing.

Sing was perfect.

I need more singing in my life.

I need to sing in my life.

My life needs to sing.

It works all the way around.
