What's Your Word of the Year?

Real Estate Agent with CENTURY 21 Goodyear Green Edmond, OK

Have you heard about the trend of choosing a "word of the year" instead of making a new year's resolution?  Until today I hadn't.  It came across my radar this morning as I was catching up on a blog I recently started to follow, The Lettered Cottage.  The idea is pretty simple.  You select one word that will guide and inspire you throughout the year.  Like I said the idea is simple.  The application of choosing a word not so much!  How do you take all that you hope for and find just one word to define it for you?  For me, that was a bit of a struggle.  So I did what I always do, I asked Google.  They would know what to do!

A quick search for "How to choose a word of the year" led me to the Word of the Year Worksheet by Christine Kane.  I poured myself one more cup of coffee and gave it a shot.  I answered questions about my current habits and my goals for the future.  I think the question that really got me thinking the most was, "if you were to live this word daily throughout the year, how would your life be different one year from today?"

I won't bore you with my answers.  But I do want to share my results.  To solidify my intention for 2012.  My word this year is FREEDOM.  The definition of freedom that rings true for me is, "the power to determine action without restraint."  That's exactly what I want in 2012!  What would your word be?

Talk to you soon!

Haven't heard about word for a day. A great idea I think. Freedom is a terrific choice for your word. Have a great 2012. Keep Prospecting!

What a great post!  I wracked my brain to think of a word to be committed to for the year.  I think I'm going to commit to the word 'EXCEL'.  Excel at whatever I am doing and make the year a success through and through.  I love this idea.  Thank you!

For some reason the word "crocodile" seems to be swimming around my brain. I quite like that word.
