For the last few years, like many others, I've been choosing one word for the year. ONE WORD to focus on. One word to stay with me all year long to encourage something in me. A word that will help me move forward personally, professionally or both. A word that, when I think of it, helps me to be a better person.
All this in one word? Yes.
My word for 2012 was Preparation. A good word. I wanted to be a better teacher and consequently better prepared. It worked. I used it as an action throughout the year.
My word for 2013 was LOVE. A good word, no question, but maybe too broad? Not specific enough? Here's the journal page I created for LOVE.
My word for 2014 was CLEAR. Clear, as in clear, uncluttered spaces to work in. Clear, as in clear skies, clear sailing ahead. Clear, as in a clear mind. It was the most useful and powerful word I've chosen so far. I referred back to it all year long, and kept it in sight.
My word for 2015 was Cherish. Another fine word, but in retrospect, not enough action in it. (You can see what I created for CHERISH here. And here is the word I was going to choose and a tutorial for you.)
So what's my word for 2016? I will unveil it the week of January 11th. An illustrated version of my 2016 word for the year.
So, what's your ONE WORD for 2016?
Below are some posters I created of the words my blog readers and facebook friends shared with me. Maybe your word is in there?
