It's become a tradition for me that instead of making New Year's Resolutions (and breaking them), I choose a word to guide me through the year. Sometimes the word comes quickly; sometimes--like last year--it's a struggle to find.
I usually start my word search by making a list of goals for the year. Below is my list for 2016. See if you can detect a pattern.
- Go to the gym.
- Go for walks.
- Go volunteer.
- Go to ALL my doctors. (I somehow missed my eye exam in 2015. Oops!)
- Go on a writing retreat
- Go to writers' conference or workshop.
- Go to California
- Go to the United Kingdom.
Three guesses what my word for 2016 is.
Kind of a no-brainer, huh?
