One word - 2016

Since 2008, I have been declaring my one-word resolution for the coming year, instead of making a list so specific it was bound to fail. I enjoy the ritual, and I do find it helps to remind me during the year of what’s important to me, even if I am not outlining a specific plan. It’s also much easier to delude oneself into believing one has not failed, am I right?

Don’t get me wrong. Words matter. I have always believed in the power of the written or spoken word, but I am taking this ritual a bit less seriously this year. Still, I hope it serves me well – or better yet, that I do it justice.

So my word for 2016 is... CREATE. 

Now, this word has obvious meaning for artists, but as always, I like it when a word has the ability to work its magic in any number of areas of my life, and this one is wide open with potential. 

So there it is. In 2016, I hope to create ______________!

(And just to re-cap…I do this part more for my own reference than anything else…my chosen words, from 2008 to 2015: Health. Wealth. Believe. Authentic. Power. Discipline. Love. Persistence.)

I love your word choice for 2016. Create will be a wonderful servant to you this new year dear. I haven't found my path yet for 2016. It has to involve my serious need to eliminate stuff/clutter which I have never been very good at. Blessings My Friend...

Great word, Kerri… fits you well….you have so much bottled-up talent that it will be exciting if "create" unleashes some of that hidden blessing that is so yours. peace….

I think all those years and all those words have helped you get to be where you are now and that is a wonderful place I hope.

I can't wait to see what you do "create" and I too have plans to do the same.

Wishing you a year of creative wonderment.
