Eureka: I got my word!

As some of you may know by now, I pick a word for the year every year. It’s meant to be motivational. It’s meant to be aspirational. It’s meant to keep me focus. As I’ve noted previously when I first picked the word “joy” it actually seemed to work. I was determined to not let people steal my joy. Or steal my sunshine. When I recently recycled that as my word of the year, it did not have the same impact. It actually landed as a dud. My space was not ready for that. I needed to climb out of some emotional holes.

Today, I feel differently. I’m ready for joy. However, that will not be my word. As I was doing chores and tasks, it hit me. I had a eureka moment. My word was going to be traveler. I kept singing the song I am the Passenger by Siouxsie and the Banshees. Yes, theirs was an Iggy Pop cover. Regardless, I love that song. One of my favorite songs that can get me to always to dance. But I am not to be a passenger. That’s too passive for my life right now. I am to be a traveler. I am to explore and find new gems and discover new cultural norms. I’m in a fun, discovery frame of mind. There is more to life than these few 20 miles and a lot of work deliverables.

I feel the need for new places and things outside my comfort zone. I am the traveler.
