What was happening?
I wanted a new word!! A great word! A word that would really make a difference for this year. A word that I could be proud of. You know what I mean? I was imagining how this new word was going to impact me and those around me this year. Something to really write about. Not just in January, but all throughout the year. Maybe a word with a great story about how it came to be. You know these stories. You have read them too.
I started wondering if the problem was that I was not willing to listen what I was hearing?
Unmute the sound.
Increase the volume.
Make sure the sound is clear, and then, listen again.
And I heard very clearly!
You might wonder why would I fight against such a great word...Well, you see, this was my word for last year!
This is what I set out to do last year. I was so ready. I was willing to discover the unknown; make a difference. Somewhere along the last 12 months, however, I lost focus. Mundane things overtook and discovery became secondary.
I think it is time for a rerun!
So, I am going to discover something new this year! Actually, not just something new, but many things.The world is full of possibilities.
There are books to read, places to visit, and people to meet. There are new things to try and old things to re-discover. There are challenges to face that need new discoveries in order to overcome them. There is learning that needs to take place so that I can discover new knowledge more deeply. There is more writing that is slowly wanting to be discovered.
I am excited! My OLW might be a rerun, but the discoveries that will be made this year will be brand new!
