Your Pick

Published December 22, 2016 by lynn k scott

The end of 2016 is quickly approaching.  With it comes the promises of fulfilling those pesky resolutions people pick to force themselves to change in the upcoming year. Depending how much celebrating takes place on New Year’s Eve, those resolutions may not last a week; depending when they were made.

I gave up resolutions three years ago.  Instead, a friend introduced me to a new concept:  selecting a word to represent you for the following year.

That being said, it takes a bit of reflection and thinking to see what word would best represent you.  There is no penalty for choosing a word that is way off base.  There’s no word police, well unless you’re on Facebook.  (hee hee)

Simply choose a word, based on what you hope to accomplish, changes that have passed or may come to pass and how you hope life treats you.

In 2015, my word was “perseverance”.  It proved to quite the word that year.

In 2016, my word was “genesis”.  While I had some new beginnings, it wasn’t quite what I was hoping for.

My word for 2017, after quite a bit of thought, is going to be….


How will 2017 influence me?  Who might I influence?  How will I react to those influences?Obviously, I can’t answer those now. You will have to check back around this time, next year, to see if my word was a good pick or not.

So, are you sticking with tradition or you ready to venture out into the word-picking world?
