The word you choose for 2016 says a lot about you. It’s another form of you identity. Who you want to be. How you want to be seen. What you want to grow into.
Don’t choose a word that is too tight and restricting. Those words cramp your brain and your soul.
Choose a word that is light and flight-ready, if you are that kind of person that likes to take flights of fancy. Or even flights of serious.
Choose a word that is weighty and heavy for its size, like a thump-ripe melon. Don’t be afraid of the mess. Life is a mess. Encompass it with your word.
Choose a word that is sharp like a blade or cold like an ice-crusted river in winter. If that’s what suits you.
Choose a short word, one that you can write on the palm of your hand and feel good about.
Choose a long word to balance out the short shrift in your life. Put in on a piece of paper and carry it around for a few days to see if it fits you.
Today is Solstice. It’s the darkest and longest night of the year. Choose a word that will bring warmth and light into your life. Choose carefully; that’s half the fun.
And enter the giveaway, too! (See yesterday’s post!)
