My craft-oriented podcasts tend to be focused now on goals for 2019. On a few (such as Elise Joy #154), I’ve heard the suggestion to choose ONE WORD that will remind you of your best intentions for the year ahead and that will help keep you centered. In fact, Ali Edwards has created a whole business out of her trademarked “One Little Word.”
Vision, space, deep, reach, habit, core are examples I’ve heard. I honed in on WHOLEHEARTED. If I want to call myself an artist, I need to develop my all-in attitude and amp up my risk-taking. The word also encompasses the way I want to live my life. I considered vibrant, vivid, and vivacity, but I like the heart in wholehearted (and maybe I don’t want the pressure to be colorful all the time).
What do you think of this idea? Can you come up with a word that will power you forward to where you’d like to be?
