If you’re like me and don’t particularly care for making New Year’s resolutions, you might like an alternative exercise of choosing three words to help “guide” you through the New Year. They’re supposed to be like little compasses I guess. I took part in this word exercise last year and it was sort of fun, so I figured why not try it again?
I have two goals for this post – to share my three words and to keep this post really brief. I’m trying to work on being a more concise writer, in other words, being less wordy!
If you’d like to read what my last year’s choices were, click here. Otherwise, it’s a secret!
The words I am selecting this year are:
FOCUS – I like this one because it’s like an “umbrella word.” I can lump a whole lot of things under this one word as I have much that I need to better focus on this year. Enough said.
JOY – I plan to find joy by spending ordinary day-to-day moments with my family/friends/pets, by hopefully inspiring others through my writing, by observing the world around me and by experiencing fully whatever happens to come my way.
BALANCE – If you clicked on the link above, you know this is a word I chose last year too. I’ve been caught red-handed or something like that. If you didn’t click, oh well, I should’ve kept quiet. Anyway, I really need to work on striving for more balance in my life and I can’t seem to come up with a better substitute word, so I’m keeping it!
Maybe this is against the rules, but hey, it’s my blog and these are my three words.
I like my three words.
I hope they help keep me on track this year!
What three words would (or did) you pick?
If you’ve written a post about your three words, go ahead and share the link. Sharing makes this exercise more fun!
