Happy New Year!
As we have done for four years, each person in my family has decided on a word for the year. My word is:
This one is unique in the sense that it encompasses many different parts of my life, yet brings everything to a central point (yes, I know what I just did there).
I am not sure what the next year will bring. I have goals I want to achieve. But this year I am concentrating on my center. I think that this work will have a domino effect on the success of my goals. When I think about my word, obviously, a wheel comes to mind, but it is a true metaphor for what I want to accomplish. It seems like all the action is on the outskirts of a wheel. It is there that you see the movement. The turning. The center seems to not move at all, but without a strong center the wheel can not move. Ever see a wheel when the axle is off center? How it wobbles, how hard it is to control.
A strong center is needed for a wheel to move, to spin, to make progress.
I have goals to meet this year, but I am only going to make it by strengthening the center… What is your word for this year?

My word for the year is “Speak”………not sure exactly how that will play out, because I have a tendency to “speak” too much!! 🙂 I really like your word and it makes so much sense!! Happy New Year, Jamie!
Happy New Year. I like the word Speak, there are lots of levels that connects with in our life. Speaking up when needed, knowing when to speak… great word for 2018.
