Drum Roll . . .
Red Carpet . . .
Celebratory Toast . . .
My final choices were: Gratitude, Celebrate, and Thankful.
I tested them out with flash drafts of this post.
What was I searching for?
Enduring words: That would be a part of my life 24/7 – literally woven into the fabric of my life
Practical words: That would be like a ticker tape running in the background of my life.
All encompassing words: That would be suitable for my professional life, my personal life and my role as a grandmother.
How would I know which word was THE word?
I would easily be able to flash draft a post about the word.
I would NOT check to see who else had chosen the word.
I would be able to use the subtle nuances of the word in my decision-making process.
My selection grid:
One Last Review of Previous Words:
- 2014 Transfer
- 2015 Focus
- 2016 Joyful
- 2017 Brave
- 2018 Curious
AND . . .
MY CHOICE . . .
Celebrate . . .
Successes in work – the processes and the product
Successes in learning – the struggle of change and the challenges of implementing those changes
Successes in family life – school and life events
Successes in being present – paying attention to small wins every day to fuel long term goals
And when needed . . . celebrate that which is YET to come!
My Goal = Celebrate . . . EVERY day!
