Word for 2021.......

 well,  first.... I hope you all had a Christmas to remember.  One filled with love, be it from afar, via zoom  or a phone call.  A Christmas filled with love and not loss.... a Christmas of fond memories made.  

Most often by now I have popped in at least a time or two to see if you've chosen a word for the New Year  I think I might be behind on that seeing we have less than a week before said New Year arrives!    

I have several that I'm still tossing around in my mind at this late date.  Sometimes it's just so hard to choose just one.  I'm sure many of you can relate.....  

My word for 2020.... Balance.  Had I only known that trying to make sense of that word in 2020, this year of abnormal....  Little did I know that I would spend the year feeling like a blind folded, one legged gymnast trying to conquer the balance, yes, balance beam, I may have opted for my second choice, that I can't share with you now because it may well be my 2021 choice.  After this year I'm almost thinking of changing the rules and allowing two words instead of just one.... just in case.  

How do you balance the loss of twenty plus people in your life?  Family, friends who count as family, close friends and others you've known your whole life.  Balance the heartache of seeing those you love, near and far go through so much and have no way to comfort them except virtually.  

Okay, I didn't start out with the intention of making this a post to bring you down but I know that you're all here with me on 2020, and I guess for me, I just needed to get this all out there before moving on.  Moving on to a new and better year.  A year of heartache and fear..... changes and loss.....  a year of memories, good and not so much.  A year to make us so want to move on to the new one that is just around the corner.....  and, although not life changing, a word for 2021.  And then again, maybe, just maybe the word you choose will be life changing.  Think about it.  Make a choice.  I have a feeling it will be a life change in the right direction.  Think positive as you make your choice.... negative rarely works and if it does, it's surely not fun!  

As we close out the year, my hope is that we will gather again soon, our losses will become fewer and our happiness be overflowing.  I will be choosing my word with all that in mind...... 

So.... care to share your word of 2021?  

thought this pic might give a bit of a lift to all..... makes me smile every time!

  1. My word for the new year is tolerance, I need to be more tolerant of ones around me. I don’t always know what they are dealing with, or where they are coming from.

    1. Thank you Ronnie, for sharing your word..... and what a great choice it is. We all need to be more tolerant of others in many circumstances. Wishing you success with conquering this and happiness in the New Year!

  2. My word is thankful. I will try to be thankful in all circumstances, even when things seem so upside down. And when I cannot be thankful, I will turn to the only one who can bring peace.

  3. Ahhh, one of my favorite words of all! It certainly doesn't surprise me that you would choose it and somehow I don't think you'll have any trouble following through with your choice. Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year fill with much to be thankful for ❤️
