It is time again to reflect. The new year always seems fresh event though the day changes the same as any other dawn. "One Little Word" is a project designed by Ali Edwards. I like the idea of choosing a word to filter the year that lies ahead and have chosen several over the last few years. Two years ago, it was Joy. That year, I lost my father and grandfathers. That lead to Art, which I selected to help me navigate the changing world I felt overcome by.
This year, I select Vivid.
I wanted a word that took me outside of myself. A word that embraced the person I am and want to be. I recently read Fierce Conversations and one of the take-aways I got from the book was that to be happy, the life you want and the life you live, the action you take must be in agreement. If it isn't unhappiness follows.
