I must admit to going back and forward with my Word of the Year since I've started thinking about it. Several were short-listed (yes, I've been thinking about it THAT much!).
These are the ones that made the short list. I wrote them down yesterday. At that point I still wasn't sure what my word was going to be. It just wasn't coming to me at all. I decided to just put them away and think on it - maybe even for a few days. Then, on our way home from our walk this morning, I was checking my Instagram and saw a post about a word and followed the link to Dicky Bird's Nest (Jacky's) blog and was reading about her new word for this year. When I saw that her word in 2018 was strive I thought that sounded like a good one, like it fit what I was looking to do in 2019, so I looked up the definition. It wasn't until I got home that I saw it was on the short list!
Definition of Strive: - to make great efforts to obtain or achieve something
So that's the word I've chosen. There are several things I want to achieve (including all the words shortlisted!).
I've also come up with some January goals that I'll share tomorrow. Do you have a word of the year? Or goals you want to obtain? Happy New Year!
