Every year I pick a word that will drive the upcoming months. A word that will help frame the year and my day-to-day life. In 2019, I picked the word “joy” . And, that truly was a powerful driving word. I kept that word at the back of mind at all times. I was determined yo ferl joy and to not let people steal my joy. That word truly framed my life and I worked towards it. In 2020, part of my word was “poetic”. But tne world had its own idea as to what the word of the year would be.
I come to 2021 with an idea of what I eant my word of the year to be but I can’t quite nail it down, ironically. I have been thinking the word would be “decisive”. It piggybacks a bit on my late year 2020 mantra of “don’t think, just do”.
However, because of the foggy nature of tbe world part of me thinks my word should be “clarity ” . I should seek clarity. I should imbue clarity. Or my word could be motive whereby I check to understand both my own motive and that of others. But that seems so introspective and perhaps even paranoid.
I am truly conflicted. What is this year to be about? I could combine them and make my word be “decisive clarity” but I don’t even know what that means. I think I need to sleep on this and see which word comes across my tongue first.
