I am not a resolutions girl. I do have a Bucket List (which I should update and share). I do however come up with ONE WORD for the year. I loved the book ONE WORD. It is a great and fast read for the new year. If you have not read it I highly suggest it:
Announcing my One Word for 2022…..RISE
Why rise? Because for a long time due to certain situations where I stumbled in life I was almost afraid to get ahead. Sure, I always get back up and dust myself off. I rise from those ashes but have always been afraid that yet again the rug would be pulled out from under me. So overly cautious has been my MO (Modus operandi) and the pattern I fall into. Now my kids are off and finding their paths and it is my time to take some chances and rise. Yes, I have use the term before to rise above maybe how someone was acting or treating me. My words extend beyond Rise above….
I want to rise and these Lyrics describe that….Rise by Calum Scott
I’ve been staring at the coastlineThinking of every choice I’ve madeTo lead me here right nowStanding on solid groundAnd I’ve been hiding in the shadowsWondering if I’m on the right roadSome place I’ve never beenIs this how it all begins?Oh-ohCause I’ve got my best DRESS on and I’m readyI’ve got my sleeves rolled up and I’ll be on my wayWhile my heart’s thumping, boom-boom, boom-boomYou’re gonna see me riseOh, and rise, rise, rise, riseFor every valley, there’s a mountainFor every answer, there’s a new questionIs it worth all this?I’m pushing myself to the edge‘Cause we’re all looking for a reasonFind a shelter from the storm withinJust keep your eyes aheadAnd dust yourself off again—-You’re gonna see me riseYou’re gonna see me riseNot how you fall back downBut how you get back up
and I have a song to go along with it (Thanks Donna!)…
Looking back over the years I have selected these words:
Thanks to all who are sharing their One Word and Why on my Facebook page! That has been so nice to read!
