The Year of "Yes"

For a number of years I've chosen a one-word theme around which I can focus my thoughts, goals, and activities for the year.

My word for 2011 was Order, and in 2012, I chose Fullness. The word I chose for 2013 was actually three interrelated words — (en)light(en) — and in 2014 I wanted to build on what I'd learned in the previous years and chose Onward as my word. My word for 2015 was See — and I wrote on that topic for #Write31Days 2015.

For 2016 I chose Yes as my One Little Word. I had been thinking about the words Intentional and Mindful and Open — but none of those individually seemed to fully capture the ideas in my mind and heart. I found myself also thinking about the concepts of Expanding My Horizons, Seeing Possibilities, and Setting Priorities. Eventually, all these thoughts seemed to boil down to the simple word Yes.

I decided that I wanted 2016 to be The Year of "Yes"!

Throughout October I will be reflecting on what I've learned this year for #Write31Days 2016. I hope you'll say "Yes" to joining me!
