The Word for 2021
For the past couple of years I have been choosing a singular word that I want to embody the year. Some years, the world comes to me very quickly and other years are excruciatingly hard. There’s something about the challenge of choosing a singular word to town body 365 or 366 days that just gets me really excited. The word for 2020, Endlessly, was extremely hard to come to you. I took about an entire month in 2019 brainstorming and planning. It actually wasn’t until I had my plan for 2020 that I finally settled on a word. 2021, on the other hand, was the exact opposite. I had the word before I had any plans for the year. I guess I should now share that word:
I think that looking into what I wanted for this year, and how I wanted to achieve my goals, it was pretty obvious that this word for perfect for me. I am firmly set in my decision to post every day in 2021. I have been doing the work the pre-write posts and get them scheduled to go.
Even when I looked at my education or career goals, I had to have faith in myself and my abilities to reach them. There has to be a level of self assurance that I have to have in order to be successful this year. At the same time, I also need to be kind to myself because this year was hell and we don’t know what the future could hold.
Do you have a word for 2021? What is the word? Why did you choose it?
