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.


Welcome to 2015 and Genesis

“an origin, creation, or beginning” (
You may or may not have read that I choose to select a word to represent me throughout the new year.  My word for 2015 is genesis.  I must have selected well, because yesterday on a popular writing site, that I was part of, made an announcement that cemented my decision to have my own blog.  It was obviously the right time and place for this to happen, so this is one of my beginnings in store for me for 2015.
I admit, I am not the most website-oriented writer that ever lived.  Heck, I’m still getting my feet wet in regards to writing on a consistent basis.  Taking the premise of “genesis”, this new blog is like a baby.  I have hopes that by the end of 2015, my “baby” will have grown into a toddler and will continue to grow in stages as we get to know each other.
There will be a multitude of firsts as I learn to navigate my blog.  Seeing as my “baby” was only born a few days ago, I think I’m doing good so far.  I’ve changed and fed this little one and there has already been some growth.  I am excited to see how much she will change in the upcoming year and to see how much I will have learned in the process.
So welcome to the year 2015.  May it be prosperous, comforting and hopefully not too challenging as the next twelve months are sure to pass quickly.
