My One Word for the New Year

One WordHave you heard of My One Word? If you answered No, don’t feel bad I hadn’t heard of this concept until this year. One of my friends, shared her word of the year in a Facebook post. That was the first time I had encounter “My One Word”. I was familiar with New Year Resolutions but not Word of the Year. I thought it was a great process to start change and keep it focused throughout the year. Especially in the areas of faith, family and finances.

Every New Year, the topic of conversation is about personal change. People look ahead to the new year and promise themselves all the things they want to do and all the things they are going to change about themselves. We all know that making New Years Resolutions almost never work. By choosing My One Word, it will be a single lens in which I will focus and see all things that God wants to do in me, and through me just because I will be able to focus.

How did I get Started picking My One Word?

I started by going to the website, MyOneWord.org where this idea originated. The two authors of that blog, Rachel Olsen and Michael Ashcraft have also written a book, “My One Word”. They have three steps to finding your “Word of the Year”

Step 1.

Determine the kind of person you want to become this year. The first step is to simply take some time and decide the kind of person you want to be at the end of this year. This goes beyond simply being healthier and wealthier, but it must drive deep into your soul. What about the condition of your heart? What about the person God himself has created you to be?

Step 2.

Identify the Characteristics of that person. Get a picture of that person and then simply identify their major characteristics. Is that person gentle? Is that person generous? What are the qualities of the person you want to become?

Step 3.

Pick a word. Once you have a list of characteristics, simply pick a word. There might be fifteen things that you want to change, but you must resist the temptation to promise you will do them all. Instead, simply commit to ONE WORD.

Words have Power

One Word flourishThere is power in words. Beauty in words. Grace in words.  Words create movement. They craft nations. They created the universe. They seal a marriage. They cast a vision. They make us laugh. They focus our attention. They expand our horizons. They stimulate our creativity. They communicate our prayers.

…And they script our possibilities.

That’s why I want to pay attention to this one particular word this year – this word of my choosing.

So what is my Word of the Year? It’s FLOURISH.

FLOURISH: to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment. A bold or extravagant gesture or action, made especially to attract the attention of others. To be successful; prosper. To decorate or embellish (writing, a page of script, etc.) with sweeping or fanciful curves or lines.

This One Word will resonate throughout the year in many areas of my life: My home, family, health, business, finances, friendships and faith.
