For a few weeks now I have been waiting to find my word of the year,. I thought I had discovered it not long ago. I kept saying it out loud, tasting its sound on the tip of my tongue trying to get used to it. I have to be honest though it did not feel right. From the beginning this other word felt like I was lying to myself. I was wondering what to do and seriously questioned how I was going to go on when today IT suddenly found me.
Arriving unannounced and ringing loud in my ears…LISTEN…and somehow I heard it. My word of the year had found me right in time,and if I might say so without a minute to spare 😉
Give one’s attention to a sound: “sit and listen to the radio”.
An act of listening to something.
hear – hearken – hark – harken – obey – attend
So here you have it, the word that will accompany me for the next 12 months. It is going to be a bit of a challenge and I am looking forward to what it will teach me.
Tell me dear friend, what is YOUR word? Has it found you yet?
