Yeah, I know we’re well into January, but it took a little while for me to come up with my One Word 2016. You can find out more about One Word 365 here! There’s just so many words out there that I could use. But I usually let the word find me instead of me finding the word.
I joined the One Word movement in 2014 and I have to say that I like it far better than writing down a long list of resolutions that I know I’ll never keep. One word is so much easier to keep up with than several hundred words such as lose weight, get Juvederm & a tummy tuck, look like a super model, turn back the aging clock – you know, the same old, same old. 🙂
In 2014, my word was LOVE, as in walking in love with everyone and not getting so impatient when things don’t go my way. I called on that word so many times during 2014.
I took a personality test a while back on Facebook and I was labeled Commander. Maybe I’m a little bossy and I’ll find a way or make one according to that personality test on Facebook and we all know that if it’s on FB . . . it has to be true. The word LOVE really did help me a tiny bit in “my way or the highway” attitude about everything.
In 2015, my one word was organize. Still working on that one. Here’s the deal; I’m super organized in so many areas and then not organized at all in others. Take blogging planners for example. I have free ones, paid-for ones and every planner under the sun, but they just take up space on my desk, empty and unwanted. I had rather keep notes on my phone or steal a yellow legal pad notebook from my husband’s office. (I had to look on Staples website to see what those yellow notebooks were called)
Speaking of planners, one of the gifts I gave my future daughter-in-law for Christmas was an XO Planner (whatever that is) and you would have thought I’d hung the moon. Score for the future mother-in-law and thanks to the son for the suggestion.
Back to my One Word 2016 – This year the word I’m going with is Balance.
Balance is having the right amount —
not too much or too little —
of any quality, which leads to harmony or evenness.
