What’s Your Word Of The Year?


Over the past decade, many of us have embraced the practice of selecting a Word Of The Year. Often, this word represents a theme that encapsulates the things we hope to focus on and the qualities we hope to embrace in the year to come.

This practice can be extremely useful in identifying what’s important to us right now. It can also help us to look back on our past and see how much we’ve grown. What One Word have you chosen to reflect upon and embrace in the past? Some words I’ve chosen as themes in previous years include Journey, Focus, Simplify and Listen.

Here are a few questions to consider when choosing your Word Of The Year:

  • What do I need more of in my life right now?
  • Who do I want to be or become?
  • What quality do I want more of in my life?
  • What change do I want to bring about?
  • What do I want this year to represent for me?

Ephesians 6-10 Be Strong In The Lord

For 2021, my Word of the Year is Strong. I also chose Ephesians 6:10 as my Verse of the Year to reinforce my theme. My over-arching goal for this year is to rocus on strengthening my personal foundation in all areas of my life.

Once you’ve chosen your word, identify some actions you’d like to take that will help you to incorporate your word into your life. Set some goals – break them down into specific, identifiable action steps – figure out what you need to do to accomplish them – create a plan – then schedule the time to do them (remember, you have all year to achieve this!)

What is your Word of the Year and why did you select it? Please share your posts and stories with us (along with your regular creations) and have fun visiting each other this week!

    Strong is a wonderful choice, we all need some strength about now. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. I’ve decided on “Breathe” as my word for 2021. I am also going to work with the word balance because they seem to go hand in hand. Strong is a great word! I chose strength the year my dad died and even have it tattooed on my wrist to always remind me how strong I am when I need to be. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

  3. I think we all need STRONG this yesr!
    My word is PERSEVERE.

  4. Amy Johnson says:

    That is a good word choice for the difficulty year I believe we have ahead of us. Thanks for the party.

  5. Ellen Pilch says:

    Strong is a good choice. My word is focus because I tend to be scattered brained. Thanks for hosting.

  6. Priyam says:

    Strong is a good choice. We all need strength.
    Focus is another word that I like. Focus on important and things that matter, which also brings to Simplify.

  7. Thanks for hosting another great party. I appreciate the time it takes – so thank you. Have a great weekend.

    My one word for 2021 is Possibility. We’ve been challenged to think and do things differently. I plan to rise to the occasion!

  9. April Harris says:

    I like both the word and the verse you have chosen, Ramona. What a good choice for 2021! My word this year is Focus. There are so many projects I want to undertake and I need to be sure to focus on just a few so I can do them well. Thank you for hosting the party! Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

  10. Trust is my word for the year. Many things in my life right now I need to be taught to trust him more.

  11. I more often choose a verse than a word but strangely enough, I haven’t really done that this year. Something to pray about. Thanks for hosting, Ramona. Have a great week.

  12. Tai East says:

    Strong is a GREAT word for this year! My word for this year is create. Thanks so much for hosting! Blessings!
