2016 has begun - and time to share my One Little Word for the year.
I have chosen a word to represent my overall aim for the year, for several years now:
2015 - BLOOM
2014 - JOY
2012- Carpe Diem (Seize the Day)
Each word has had a positive effect throughout the year - most times encouraging me to look forward, with hope and joy.
Last year, I had hoped to bloom, to open up to new experiences and blossom as a writer and artist. 2015, though, brought many health issues, especially for my husband. A fall on ice that I had in February resulted in a mild concussion (the fourth I've had). It also made me more fearful. My writing suffered as a result and I withdrew quite a bit.
As I searched for my OLW for 2016, the word shine kept appearing and I knew that it was what I needed to move forward.
I found this definition of shine on google search:
My OLW really will enhance my winter dreamboard I created Dec. 21.
The goals I laid out in it I plan to work to achieve throughout the next few months.
What is your One Little Word for 2016?
Happy New Year everyone - may this year be filled with wonder and happiness and peace for all.
