I am having an absolutely delicious week and hope you are too.
It feels like life is turning a corner in many ways and I am filled with deep gratitude.
We have been talking about the close of 2019 a lot around here.
Part of celebrating the close of a year for me centers around choosing a new word to represent the coming year.
A word that highlights what I would like to strive for.
Past years words have included joy, adventure, gratitude, patience, love.
As we close the year, part of the experience is getting a feel for what the new word might be. I choose one and try it out - very often morphs into a perfect fit!
This year I initially thought my word for 2020 would be FUN.
In the last few weeks of the year, I test the proposed words and see how they feel.
At first, fun felt like THE word.
Then a friend shared her word with me and it felt more appropriate.
It captured the feeling I would love to embody this coming year.
Her word... WHIMSY!
Isn’t that a magnificent word?!
I adopted it for a few days and thought, now we have it!
But this weekend, I attended a Christmas party and met the most lovely 91-year-old.
Y’all, she was so cool.
New aging goals right there.
In talking with her, and watching how to room interacted with her, I think my word may have changed.
Now, I am trying on DELIGHTFUL.
Isn’t that just a pleasant and magnificent idea?
I am curious to know what your word might be for 2020?
What word are you going to try on?
Drop a comment below, or send me an email.
I’d love to hear from you!
Wishing you a delightful week,
Tea-loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
