My Word of the Year
For the last six years my wife has developed a tradition. On New Year's Day, she waits for a word to come to her, a word that will serve as the theme for the st of the year. She says she can't just pick the word, the word picks her. Past words have included:
These words give her a good sense of purpose and focus throughout the following 365 days, so I've decided to try it out myself.
A few days ago the word "persevere" popped into my head, so I thought that would be it. However, yesterday I realized that the word, which means to continue on despite adversity, was really ideal for this year that has just concluded: 2016.
So, today, another word has found me. My word for 2017 is "Listen."
Do you have a word of the year? Tell me about it. I'm all ears.
