Ahhh, January. The time of resolutions, the season of looking forward to a fresh start. I know women who are busy selecting their word for the year ahead, a word to encapsulate their hopes and goals for 2017. But not me. Not this year.
In the spirit of not looking back (see previous post), I am choosing not to select a single word to encompass and shape my entire year. Who knows what a whole year will bring? I don’t want to hem myself in like that. It’s just an exercise in planning, a word to help maintain focus, right? I believe that words have power, so I am not limiting myself to one word. My new year will be filled with wordiness and verbosity, the days ahead will bear witness to the wisdom of an abundance of words.
Words are free. Free.
And I will use them freely this year.
