My word for 2016

If you could choose any word at all to fit YOU in 2016, what would it be?

I’ve thought about this a lot, and waited, and listened, and waited, and thought some more. The result of all that is a word I’ve been feeling is for the year of 2016. It may be for my own life as well as extending far beyond me. Although other words came to mind, this one always rose to the top. That word is CHANGE.

Therefore, my word for 2016 is CHANGE

What I foresee in my limited vision and understanding is the following, as applies to me:

  • letting go of some longstanding commitments, thereby allowing space for other things
  • seeing myself as the writer I am, thereby freeing myself to create
  • pushing forward, thereby completing and preparing stories and manuscripts for submission
  • still applying my last year’s word .. POSITIVITY .. thereby disallowing negativity and discouragement to pull me down or stop me
  • allowing God to affect change within me in those places that can not remain the same if I am to grow and move on

Change may seem a simple thing for you. For me it is a little unnerving, a little off-putting, while at the same time it is exciting, hopeful, and alluring.

Change is my word and also my goal for 2016. What is yours?

Thank you for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. Change is a very good word. Just by choosing it, you are committed to accepting it. I still haven´t chosen a word yet.


    • “committed to accepting it” Yikes! That’s true. Here’s hoping I can stick to it.
      I see you as adventurous, both in life and in your writing, so I’m sure your word will come to you, Darlene. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment.

  2. What a great New Year’s post, Lynn! I love your word choice, and I love Darlene’s comment that by choosing it, you are committed to accepting it!

    My word is Contentment. After a year filled with many losses, large and small, I need a reminder that my life is good and worthy of contentment. The past was wonderful, and I’m normal in regretting the loss of things dear, but looking backward too often becomes an obstruction to achievement here in the present and to enjoyment of what blessings are yet to come.


    • Thanks, Sue. Yes, Darlene caught me on that one! 🙂

      I love your word for this year. Contentment has a satisfying, calming feeling to it.
      You are so right about the effects of looking back. We rob our todays doing that.
