I have written about My One Word (MOW) in the past. The premise is this: you pick just one word to inspire you all year long.
If you are a writer, the appeal of only writing ONE WORD in a writing session is seductive.
It is, however, also deceiving. It’s harder to choose just one word to write down than you might think. There’s actually an entire website devoted to this topic, with a section devoted to just choosing your word.
When you can only choose one, you want it to be the best word ever.
The contenders this year for me are, in no particular order:
Write Meditate Breathe Focus Declutter
I thought I had a good list from which to choose when I made the mistake of visiting the MOW website’s ‘Pick your word’ section and another word, a bright and shiny new and different word, popped out at me: BRAVE. This word, this BRAVE word, showed me that I had unconsciously been thinking that MOW must be a verb. Every word that I thought of was a verb.
But Brave? Brave can be an adjective or a verb! Or even a noun! And Brave is a big, important word. There’s an entire Disney Movie about that word! I have written other blog posts that contain that word!
Oh, I just thought of yet another (verb) word: Decide.
I think maybe I just did. 🙂
What do you think about choosing One Word versus making New Year’s Resolutions?
What would YOW (Your One Word) be?
If you are BRAVE, please comment below with your choice!
