Week 2 prompt: Your Word (of the Year).
I’ll admit I’ve never chosen a word of the year before 2013. In the past, I thought it seemed like the trendy thing to do so I stayed clear of joining in. I had a change of heart this year after reading this post by Stephenie Zamora. Stephenie wrote about selecting a guiding word. Rather than declaring resolutions, she encouraged her readers to select a word that would be their guiding focus for the year. I could do that! I like the idea of having a theme for the year, captured in a single word. My word for the year?
Intentional (Adjective) – Done on purpose; deliberate. Synonyms – deliberate, willful, purposeful, intended.
Intentional is an active word, it packs a bit of a punch. I like that. I’ve been thinking about my time, things that are important to me, and what I hope to accomplish. Rather than letting life just happen, I want to work more on living with purpose. In this post on zenhabits, you’ll read some great thoughts on intentional living. I’m bookmarking this post as a reminder throughout the year. Let’s make each moment count!
