Over the course of the past month, I’ve been considering candidates for my 2020 word. Last week, I thought I’d settled on the word CULTIVATE – one of many candidates. Others in contention: create/creative; finish; focus; garden; grow; Yes to No!, etc. The list of candidates grew longer and yet, nothing just quite grabbed me.
Saturday, I started reading Wendy Wood’s Good Habits, Bad Habits, a book that’s been in my TBR stack easily a month, six weeks. The book has received favorable reviews; the more I read, the more convinced and comfortable I became that YES! Habit was going to continue to be my word in 2020.
Habit permeates all aspects of life:
- complicates yet eliminates decision making;
- fascinates yet eludes;
- helps and hinders;
- liberates and traps;
- confounds and explains
- etc; etc; etc.
I am really looking forwad to continuing my journey with Habit. 2019 was a year of flirtation; I just didn’t really get very involved. I plan (hope?) 2020 to be an entrely different story.
In 2019, Juliann of Chasing Stories invited us to join her, the last Tuesday of the month and share an update on our experience with our words. She isn’t going to continue hosting our sharing; I volunteered to keep the practice going in 2020.
I hope you will share your 2020 word and join the monthly updating the last Tuesday of each month. For this month, December 2019, please leave the link to your post in the comments. The January, 28, 2020 post will have the inLinkz (link up) active.
I look forward to our 2020 One Little Word journey.
Happy New Year!
