My word for 2019
Saturday, December 22, 2018
As I begin the search for my “word for 2019” I look back in gratitude for those I’ve chosen since coming across this idea.
It started in 2016 and for no particular reason I chose ADVENTURE!
During that year I was faced with all the times I needed to force myself to get out of my comfort zone to find those adventures. Some were with new friends, some were new places and activities, and some were scary and wonderful at the same time.
My word for 2017 was HOPE
My word for 2018 was JOY
This is part of Fra Giovanni's Christmas Prayer
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"
So far I’m thinking my word may be LISTEN for 2019
According to Oxford Dictionary, Listening is to give your attention to sound or action. When listening, you are hearing what others are saying, and trying to understand what it means. The act of listening involves complex affective, cognitive, and behavioral processes.
The Set-aside Prayer: from (DJBTOO— Donna)
Help me set aside everything I know, and everything I think I know, for an open mind and new experiences.
If you are someone who does this too, let me know what your word is. I’d be most interested to know.
