COMMITMENT. TEACHER. DEEPER. BALANCE. DISCIPLINE. PATIENCE. GROUNDED. CREATE. HOPEFUL. COMMUNICATE. JUMP
These are some of the words I’ve heard people choose for their year.
As for me, I’ve been trying to decide between two words: Create and Expansiveness. For some tie breaking help, I checked out the dictionary (could I be any more of a word nerd?).
Definition of EXPANSIVE 1: having a capacity or a tendency to expand 2: causing or tending to cause expansion 3: characterized by high spirits, generosity, or readiness to talk : open <grew expansive after dinner> 4: marked by expansion; especially : having a great expanse or extent : sizable, extensive <an expansive interpretation of the law> 5: characterized by richness, abundance, or magnificence <expansive living> <expansive taste>
Definition of CREATE 1: to bring into existence 2: a. to invest with a new form, office, or rank b. to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior 3: cause, occasion 4: a. to produce through imaginative skill b : design
And, with that, I feel called to choose Expansiveness. What I want for and from myself in this new year is growth, engagement, energy, the ability to savor the moment I am in, and the discipline to create the life I desire. I want expansiveness.
