2018 Word of the Year: Peace
Happy New Year! We are back from taking a break over the Holidays and we are getting caught up and back into the swing of things! Many people write new year resolutions. I concurrently write down my goals for the year, which I recently finished, while also reflecting upon last year, but I have found it more helpful to have a word, an intention, to focus on throughout the year.
This year, after reflection, I decided the word peace would be my word for 2017. Last year I chose the word relax; in 2016 I chose present; in 2015 I chose flow; in 2014 I chose trust; and in 2013 I chose the word create. Also, My Intent offers custom bracelets and necklaces containing one’s word as a reminder of one’s intent, while spreading positive energy.
Peace defined: /pēs/ noun 1. freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.
I decided that I want to have more of a sense of peace than last year, which was quite intense, in many ways. So Doug and I are making a concerted effort to enjoy each day and incorporate as much tranquility and peace as possible this year, and we are hopeful and excited to see how this year unfolds.
Are you considering selecting a word for yourself (or letting one find you)? There is no right or wrong. The main thing to remember is that this is your word.
And what do you do with this one little word? You live with it. You invite it into your life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities.
Happy New Year!
