Word of the Year

Do you have a word of the year? Is there one word that sums up what you need to work on or change in the coming year?

Our co-hosts for this month offered examples:

In 2021 my word of the year was Finish. I was determined to finished my first draft by the end of the year. In 2022, my word of the year is Ease. I want to get my process, systems, finances, and routines where life flows with ease and less chaos.”

What is your word for 2023? Why?

Regret – that, in part, was my year in 2022. It wasn’t a bad year, but after the loss of my father-in-law, I began to think back, wishing things were different or I’d done things a different way. Life is precious and time with family is more important than any “thing” that can be given to me.

But for 2023, it’s renewed strength and perserverance. I want to be strong mentally, emotionally and physically, not just for myself, but for my family and friends.

    For your family and friends – that’s a worthy reason.
    Very sorry you lost your father-in-law.

    I’m sorry for your loss. Regrets can be a heavy thing, but I like to believe they help us learn, grow, and improve ourselves. I hope the new year brings you the strength and perseverance you desire.

    I’m sorry for your loss. It’s hard to lose the people you love. I think it’s hard to go through life without some regrets. We have to learn from them and move on to do the best we can. All the best to you!
