Many people choose a word for the new year. I am among those people.
Why choose a word?
The process of choosing a word may help clarify where you are going in life. A thoughtful choice can stimulate the process of setting your course and determining goals.
This morning as I was looking over my list of possible words, something new came to me. After mentally trying it out I realized it is the perfect word. One that suggests a state of being. A place that requires thankfulness, humility, contentment. It's a beautiful word. One that I will remind myself of daily. I want, need to embrace this word. Maybe you can relate to the tendency of taking life and circumstances a little too seriously. Don't beat yourself up. Some of us are wired that way. Perhaps you will want to embrace this word as your own.
