New Word: 2018

Published December 12, 2017 by lynn k scott

Years ago, a friend told me about a practice of picking a new word to represent you through the upcoming year.  Face it, resolutions are great for a few weeks and then our true nature breaks through and we revert back to our old habits.  Ok, a few people stick with them, but the majority doesn’t.

I was one of those people.  State your resolution, post how great you’re doing and then the topic suddenly stops coming up.  That’s why I love picking a word to represent me.  I honestly reflect on previous years.  What has happened, how I handled things, who came into or left my life, etc.

  • 2015:  Perseverance
  • 2016: Genesis
  • 2017:  Influence

All these words turned out to be extremely relative for the year they represent.  With the new year only a few weeks away, it’s time to make the word selection that I will take into 2018.  After careful consideration, the word I choose is,


Why Simple?

In 2017, there have been new influences on how I view life.  I have met some AMAZING people this year.  I have received tremendous support.  I have reflected on my life, up to this point and time.  What does it come down to?  Living a simple life.  I have everything I need (except a cure).

Life really doesn’t need to be as complicated as we make it.  I am as guilty of this as the next person.  Simplifying how I choose to live will help declutter my mind and my life.  A better devotion to Christ, realizing how important family is, having friends that support you are simple ways to have a very rich life.

There you have it:  A SIMPLE recipe for the upcoming year.

Will you join me in selecting a word instead of making a resolution that you may or may not see through?  Please comment with your word if this inspires you to follow suit.
