Two months left until we hit the New Year. And, I honestly do not know or can even vaguely imagine what that new year will bring.
Right around this time of the year I start reminiscing and looking back at both highlights and lowlights. And, I’ve had plenty of both. While I do this lookback, I tend to try to imagine how the new year will be different. I know for sure, I must lose weight next year. I know for sure, I need to do more travel. I know for sure, I need new paths. That’s all I know. I think.
As I look forward, I also tend to come up with my word for the new year. I’ve recycled the word “joy” a couple of times. One year that word really did inspire me. In another year, that word fizzled.
What can I consider for my word this time around? The word “unexpected” comes to mind. As does “surprise”. As does “leap of faith”. Technically, that’s a phrase. Maybe my word should be “monster” and just leave it open to interpretation.
