This year’s pace seemed lethargic. Too many words. Too much time. Too many choices. Inability to make a decision created angst. Worrying. Fretting. Reviewing previous words to ensure duplications did not occur by chance. Acceptable on purpose but not by chance!
A Review of Previous Words:
- 2014 Transfer
- 2015 Focus
- 2016 Joyful
- 2017 Brave
- 2018 Curious
- 2019 Celebrate
- 2020 Envision
Not sure about the goal or purpose of #OLW? Here’s a video to check out more information about #OneLittleWord. If you know/understand the basic premise, keep reading or you can enter #OLW in the search box to see other blog posts I have written about #OLW since 2014.
This in my Twitter feed meant a lot this week as I was narrowing down my words.
My sister already tweeted out her #OLW for this year. And I love that she said it’s “part compass, part motivator, and part mirror.”
Nouns. Verbs. Adjectives. Words that can be more than one part of speech. Does it matter? Trying out the word. Does it fit? How well does it fit?
A final check of quotes and this one sealed my word.
“When you are willing, you don’t need to confront anything. It’s you that puts the resistance and unwillingness there. Put willingness there and resistance melts away.”
― Meir Ezra
So for this year . . .
I anticipate this will be a phrase that will include many actions . . .
Willing to . . .
Willing to listen
Willing to think
Willing to learn
Willing to take time
Willing to make time
Willing to take action
What is your #OLW?
What are you willing to set as your 2021 goal(s}?
