Time To Reveal My Word For 2019

Kindness is not my word for 2019. Originally, it was and then, I completely changed my mind.

Do I still plan to be kind and watch for kindness in 2019? Of course, I do! I just decided to think a bit bigger for this year.

Spent a bit of time thinking about what new word to choose.

It’s going to be a year of changes around here. My oldest son graduates in the spring. Hopefully, starts college in the fall. My youngest son starts high school in the fall.  I turn a big number in the winter (top of the hill but not going over it yet!).

Thought of making my word change. No, didn’t feel right. Too much focus on the change. Not really what I need.

What about the phrase Let Go….Let It Go, ventures off into singing Disney songs. Nope, that doesn’t quite fit either.

At one point, I thought I’d go slightly oddball with my word and choose fruit. Thinking of fruit of the spirit but I guess fruit on its own would also work as a health thing.

Then, the more time I spent thinking on it, I realized the word was already right there. It’s time!

My word for 2019 is Time! No, not like the magazine.  

Time as in…

making an effort to spend time with my boys and my husband.

taking time to take care of myself.

knowing the time to let go of feelings as they arrive.

spending the time to learn something new.

It’s time to make 2019 the best year yet! 

Did you pick a word for 2019?

    Hi Jean. Your word for the year reminded me of Debbie Macomber, American author and knitter. She always picks a word for the year too. I’ve never picked a word but tried to plan goals such as ‘be more present’, in the real world, eg I’d happily chat away on fb knitting groups but not actually knit/crochet. I All the best for 2019.

      I’ve heard of her but not sure I’ve actually ever read any of her books. Perhaps I’ll look into reading a few of them this year. That’s a great goal. Hope you had a great New Year and have a wonderful happy & healthy 2019!

    Hi Jean! I haven’t ever picked a word for the year, but Time sees to fit you. Making time for the important things in our lives and letting go of those time wasters is a fabulous idea. Happy Thursday! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Thanks. I’m hoping this word works well for the year. The first week of the year got off to a super (unexpectedly) busy start so we’ll see. Hope you’re having a great Saturday so far!

    yes, that’s a perfect word… I think you’ll discover a lot with that word. How to spend your time, what you value, how fast it passes or slowly, and lots more. I’d love it if you’d update us on what you’re learning about it this year. Having children move into adulthood is a real turning point. You must realize the meaning of passing time. All the moments spent enduring tantrums, making dinners, chatting about slights and hurts, nursing them through ear aches… all moments of time. Here’s to a wonderful year of new moments. Glad I met you!!! LeeAnna

      Thank you. I usually try to do a few updates on my word as the year moves along. Yes, glad I met you as well. Let me know if you decide to come explore the Kansas City area!

    I have picked a word in the past. One year it was reduce. I did alright. Last year it was transformation after coming out of such an ugly time. I haven’t thought of a word this year though. I did see one person’s word that I thought was awesome. Steadfast.

      Sometimes it takes a while to think of a word. I seem to do better on years the word just comes to me. I like Steadfast. That’s a good one.

    I have not picked a word before this year, but I know a lot of people who do and I love reading what their word is and the reasons behind it! “Time” seems very appropriate for you as you look to everything coming this year!

      Thank you. I’m just hoping focusing on the word time doesn’t make me more stressed. Embrace was such a soothing word so I hope time will work to soothe a bit as well. Hope your weekend is going well so far!
