One of the things they talked about was choosing a word for the year – one that almost set out an intention of an affirmation for the year ahead. To my shame, I don’t remember which word Liz had chosen, but Aoife had opted for freedom and was living her life as best she could, towards that goal.
Having only discovered this partway through the year, I didn’t pick a word for 2015. I’ve thought about all the things I did last year, the people I met, the experiences I had – good and bad – and realised that the best times came when I was open to the possibility of good things.
With that in mind, my word for 2016 is openness.
Every day I will try to have an open heart and an open mind, in readiness for all the wonderful possibilities that lie before me.
What’s your word for 2016? Drop me a comment, I’d love to know!
