Word of the Year – 2017

Ever heard anyone share about how they pick a word for the year and then use it as an area of focus? I have. I guess a few years ago one of the groups of women who I know from the rooms started sharing their focus. Often they throw out a topic that is also a spiritual principle such as words like gratitude, humility, and acceptance.

I have never practiced this as part of my program before now. However, this year one word just keeps POPPING in my head like a nag. CONSISTENCY. You better believe I see the irony. Have I mentioned my higher power has jokes?

Clearly my God has decided I should give this word some focus, and I concede. Will I focus on this word all year? Perhaps or perhaps not. It’s hanging around for now though, and I am alright with it. I agree that there is some work to be done here.

Anyone else out there have a focus for the day, week, month, year? Care to share?


PS – Disconnecting to Reconnect exercise still going strong – one week down. Biggest benefit so far is my relationship with my spouse has drastically improved. Thinking about adopting the change for longer!

  1. I’ve been rolling around the words of SHINE and BLOOM. Can’t do either of those things with cocktails.
    Love hearing your “plan” is working… my husband and I just discussed turning off all news outlets after 7pm. I’ve been down the Media Rabbit Hole these past few days.


    1. Merry – what great focuses! So positive! Also, I can totally relate to needing a break from the news. Every time it comes on I catch myself quoting, “and we resigned from the debating society”. Of course in the literature its about finding a higher power, but I like to apply it all around. 🙂
