Without a minute to spare

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blowing in the Wind

/หˆlisษ™n/

Give one’s attention to a sound: “sit and listen to the radio”.

An act of listening to something.

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 ย is YOUR word? Has it found you yet?

  1. Anyes, I like so much how you say that you were trying to find the word but instead it found you. ๐Ÿ™‚ When I read the recent post about the word of the year on the Vision & Verb blog, I thought it would be nice to have one too but I didn’t start looking for it. Some time later I was supposed to write my intentions for the new year and when I was trying to come out with something, I found a word peeking from the back of my mind. It was the word HUMOUR. It seems to me that we found one another! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. One of my favorite stories is of my biological father. I never knew him but my half-brother related a story. He said that his father would often sit on the porch on a summer’s night. He’d be out there for a long time. His son walked outside one evening and said, “What are you doing out here dad.” He replied, “I’m listening son, I’m listening.”

  4. answer to your question: yes, my word is ‘entrust’. I too had to ‘listen’.
    I have missed visiting you; a few months ago I lost access to my blog’s dashboard, thus I lost bloggers’ blog sites. so glad to see you and enjoy your blog once again
    happy new year!

  5. I think from the way you’ve been speaking lately that “listen” is a good choice for you…and I love that it found you….and why is that? Because you were already listening. It may prove to be a challenge for you but not in a difficult way…I think this will be a rewarding challenge.
