On the first day of this year 2014, I clicked on the television and happened upon The TODAY Show. The guest was talking about how one word can change everything in 2014. Words, I thought – better watch this story.
I really like Jon Gordon’s idea of finding a word that works for you for the New Year. As I went about my day, I thought of this word and that word, and nothing really hit me until I started doing some research. (Clearly, I took the word challenge seriously!)
Since I could not find the word I loved, I scribbled words I liked on a piece of paper. Resilience. Calm. Clear. Serene. Resilient. Unflappable. Unruffled. From there, I started researching definitions, looking for clues, leads and ideas to more interesting words – at least more interesting to me.
And there it was – the word I had been searching for all along, just sitting there online, staring at me.
I posted it on the refrigerator at home. January 1, 2014.
And made a promise to myself that each and every day of 2014, I will do my best to live by this word.
Yet to be determined how it will go…Day 3, 2014.
