My word for last year was “lighten up” (ok, I cheated and picked two words). I wrote about it at
The word selection was great, but remembering and implementing it has been something else altogether. 2015 has had its ups and downs for us (mostly health-related, come to think of it), so conditions haven’t exactly been conducive for lightening up. Regardless, I am a sucker for resolutions and the success (or lack thereof) of last year’s theme has nothing to do with planning for this year (you agree, I know you do).
So. My word for 2016? “Relish”. In 2016, I will remember to savor and delight in the every day moments, this time in our lives when the munchkins are both still (relatively) little and home with us, their yummy cuddles, the mild winter (hope it lasts all winter!), good health, music, TED talks, vacations, everything delightful that I hope comes our way in 2016.
Do you like the idea of a word for the year? And if you do, what would you choose as your word for 2016?
