Well! I'm not sure how I feel about this new-fangled idea. I mean, if this works for you and if it's what inspires you, then awesome. I am ALL for that. It's not that I think it's a bad idea; it's just that I have some questions. For instance: how do you a pick a word for an ENTIRE year? A whole year of complete uncertainty? 365 days!!! THE PRESSURE. THE ANXIETY.
Also, how does one choose one of these words? Did it come to you in a dream? Did you see it in your alphabet soup? Was it spelled out in the night sky with fireworks and giggles? Did you open a dictionary and choose the first word you saw? ENLIGHTEN A SISTER.
I think it's really great that people are so excited about their words. I do! It's awesome to have a goal and ambition to achieve it. But there is no way I could choose one word to guide my whole year. There are too many great words in the English language. I have, however, compiled a list of words that I KNOW would guide me into a great year. Any one of these words would guarantee a happy and satisfying 2014.
If you are also struggling to find a word to change your whole life for the next...*does basic math*... 356 days, I submit the following list of potential guide words for you consideration:
Oh the possibilities!
