Your One Word for 2021
Old 12-31-2020, 06:21 PM
  #1

I've chosen "limitless." This past year has limited me in so many ways. However, since I have navigated and made it through 2020, I feel that I can tackle anything and the sky's the limit. Hope springs eternal in me.

What's your one word?

I don't know which word is best, but they all relate: positive, optimism, joy, happy.

I picked these because I've struggled with anxiety and depression for a long time and ironically, this year was when it started to improve...I feel really good and I want to keep that up.

My word for 2021 is intentional. I spent too much of 2021 doing a million things at once and didn't take time often enough to really set a purpose or intention. I need to restore my sense of purpose and focus by making sure my intentions are defined and set.
