I found a site on the internet several years back called ONE WORD. It's all about giving up New Year's resolutions because, let's face it, they are usually out the window by March, April, or Jan. 3. Instead, you pray about One Word that you will focus on for the year. Just one word.
My words in the past were good words, words like discipline, giving, healthy, honor. Good words. For the most part, serious words. Well, here it is Fall and I've already decided on my next word for this next year coming up. I wanted it to be different. I wanted a short word but packed with a lot.
My life has had a lot of seriousness in it. Today, I love what I do as in writing and volunteering but where I volunteer, there is a lot of seriousness. . .in the hospitals and homeless community, both of which I write about. I'm living in my 5th decade now. I've watched a lot of people my age and younger get sick, be in accidents, die. It just makes me realize even more than ever, I don't know how many more years, or days, or minutes I have.
One day something funny happened, and I had one of those big ol' belly laughs, something I had not had in quite some time. It felt good! And then I met two ladies who love living with their inner child. They make me smile. That feels good. Silliness can be good. . .for your health, for your face, for your relationships. SO. . .
I am picking a word for this next year that is going to make me giggle, laugh, snort, leap for joy maybe. . .and hopefully, it will make someone out there on the other side of the screen giggle, laugh, snort, smile, leap for joy. If nothing else, just for minute, to leave seriousness behind and give your heart a jog, a jiggle, a leap of joy before getting back to the seriousness of the day.
Have you guessed my new word yet?
Well. . .just follow the arrow. . .
HERE IT IS. . .
