The beginning of a new year fills me with HOPE for what is possible.
My word for 2021 was Possibility. In 2021, possibility felt like an opening, and an invitation to release my grip on expectations. There is no failure, there is only what is possible!
Not everything I envisioned came to be, but I was conscious that I had and have a choice to pursue or release whatever possibilities come across my path.
Possibilities are limitless.
Possibilities are an invitation.
Possibilities are the seed of the future.
Reflecting on the past DECADE of my practice of selecting a WOTY, here are some of my previous words. I love how they connect and flow into one another.
Hope is one of the three ethical Christian virtues, along with faith and charity. Although this is not what drew me to the word, my choice for hope is an expansion of the possibilities of 2021. Hope is related to faith, and trust. It may for some, require those qualities, yet it is an expectation.
With hope, I envision something better-I give myself permission to dream again, to invite, to anticipate, to DESIRE.
Hope is a Promise and an Invitation, an Outlook, and a State of Mind.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the word of the year process (WOTY). Hit reply and let me know your word (s)?
