Default OLW 2020

Do you pick out a 'one little word' every year?
What was your word this year? Have you chosen a word for next year already?

My word this year was 'heal'. And it worked out for me really well.
But I haven't decided on my word for next year yet.

So I'd love to hear your words for this year or next year. And how it fits into your life.

I didn't have one for this year, I think, nor was I planning to have one for next year. However, when I read your post, the word 'sleep' popped on my mind. I've been sleeping badly this year that it's taking a toll on me, maybbbeeee I should use that as OLW to fix my late night sleeping habit

I don't pick a word. If I did, it would probably be "live" and I'd just use that every year.
So glad that your word worked out so well for you, Sarah!

My OLW this year was hustle. It was a hard, hard, hard word especially since most of the hustling was mental/"inside" things that most people couldn't or didn't notice.

My OLW for next year is going to be "prevail." I'm excited to have a happier word to work on and towards.

I fail so badly at these. I had the word 'complete' one year and you guessed it! I didn't 'complete' my one little word.

Maybe I should choose 'fail' or 'procrastinate' as then I would feel accomplished

I would like to do it, but just end up tanking.

I didn't pick one out for this year but this coming year I am going to. I am working hard on maintaining my health, taking care of my family.

My OLW is going to be "NOURISH". I want to nourish my family, my body, my mind. I want to nourish with goodness, with positivity.

My last one was purpose. I wanted to concentrate my energies on doing things that serve a purpose for myself and others. I would say I did okay with it. I still wasted more time doing nothing worthwhile then I should have, but I figure everyone needs to have that kind of down time.

I haven't chosen one for next year yet, but I do have a few in mind. The top of the list is move. I am a pretty sedentary person who needs to move more for my health. But honestly, it sounds hard, so I may just go with something easier like eat. Eat is pretty easy for me. LOL Just kidding, kinda.

I have never done this and actually even just almost skipped over reading this. But I did, and the word that came to mind was ‘confidence’.

I can't remember my word; it went out the window when things started spiraling out of control. I'm not bothering with a new word next year because maybe if I don't have one, things will be a whole lot better instead of God challenging me to use my word to grow, learn, etc.

It's like that saying "don't pray for patience, because God will surely test your patience". I'm beginning to think these OLW are the exact same thing!

I went back and found the 2019 OLW post that you made:
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...ad.php?t=89739

My word was "hope"
Quote:

For 2019. I think I'm making my OLW "Hope" because I have a lot of hope that God will work things out and even if they don't go the way I hope, that God is still in control of the situations and I give it all to Him.

hope
/hōp/Submit
noun
1. a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.

2. a feeling of trust.

verb
1. want something to happen or be the case.
In looking back, I guess I didn't fail a lot with my OLW because through all of our challenges, I always tried to keep my hope and trust in the Lord, that he was going to guide and protect us through each of the challenges that we faced throughout the year. However towards the end of the this year, I struggled--a lot. Not going to lie. There have been times I've told the family, I'm giving it over to God, but in the next breath, I'm taking it all back because things spiral out of control. Maybe this is a good reminder to finish out the year strong and growing that hope that God is still in control even though some days I feel like I'm drowning.

Oh, I like that word!

Confidence was my word a few years ago.

I haven't done a OLW for a few years now and I think I would like to. It has definitely helped me in the past. I have to have a good think on what it will be, now.

my word was compassion- for myself and others. I should have placed it in big letters somewhere to remind myself through the year! Haven't thought about next year's yet...

I think my 2020 word is going to be GENUINE
gen·u·ine
/ˈjenyo͞oən/

: actually having the reputed or apparent qualities or character
: sincerely and honestly felt or experienced
: ACTUAL, TRUE
: free from hypocrisy or pretense : SINCERE

I want my thoughts, my words, my everything to be genuine. I want to cut back on the toxicity of social media, especially with the upcoming election *insert dread*. I want whatever I type or say, for people to know that I really mean it and that I'm not just doing it for show. I don't want someone to read my words and wonder if I've being sincere or sarcastic. I want people to see me for who I am, not for how I sometimes portray myself when outside of my home.

I know we should live this way 24/7, but sometimes it's easy to get caught up in the bickering, sarcasm, etc of social media and people we call "friends" in real life, that we don't realize we are doing that. So going back to my 2018 word of mindful, I'm adding genuine to my OLW to make sure I'm being the person that I was created to be in 2020.

My word for 2018 (I think) was DECIDE, because, like always, I couldn't decide what to pick! I think last year I forgot to chose a new one.

2019 was Exhale. 2020 might be Align. I'm still thinking.
