WORDs for the YEAR

 Happy 2021! We made it.

Last week, I was scrolling through Facebook and there was a meme on one of the groups I'm a member of.

There was a word-search-like image and the first four words your were able to see in the grid were supposed to be your words for the new year.

So I scanned the jumble of letters and noted my four words, thinking they were interesting and probably accurate, but nothing more than that.

Until a day or two later when my core of girlfriends was texting back and forth, and someone mentioned choosing a word for 2021.

Maybe it was coincidence, maybe it wasn't, but the more I thought about my words, the more I realized how apropos they really are.

My four words were: creative, adjustment, gratitude, and strength.

Creative: I'm not 100% sure how creative fits in, but it feels right. I guess because I'm looking to strengthen certain aspects of my creativity this year.

Adjustment: There are going to be a lot of adjustments coming, both personally and for our business, so that one definitely fits. I'm not a huge fan of change, but knowing it's coming is half the mind-battle.

Gratitude: I know I need to be more grateful about many many things--including the upcoming changes that will grow our business. I'll definitely need an attitude adjustment to help me with certain aspects of that. :0)

Strength: And as for strength, this works for a variety of reasons. I'm gonna need metaphorical strength (and forbearance) to get through the changes in our business. It'll be a stressful time.

I'm also going to be studying my top ten personality strengths and learning how to utilize them for maximum potential. (More about those to come.)

And I'd like to increase my actual physical strength.

What do you think?

Do you have a word or two that you'd like to harness for the upcoming year?

I'd love to hear about them in the comments.

Have a great week.
