One Little Word . . . 2020
I've been choosing a word each year* . . . for as long as I've been blogging. This is the first year, though, where my word wasn't immediately clear to me from the get-go. This year I had a concept . . . before I had a word. I really had to work at finding the right word this year!
I knew I wanted to pull together a lot of things I'd been working on and thinking about already, but I also wanted a word that was more active. A word that got me up and moving. A word with energy. A word that was forward-thinking. A creative kind of word.
And then . . . it came to me.
This year, I want to . . . find my flow.
I want to be the flow.
(So I can live my best life.)
(For the rest of my life!)
"The more in harmony you are with the flow of your own existence, the more magical life becomes."
*My past words: move, shine, surprise, possibility, journey, risk, balance, focus, and intention.
Do you know Csikszentmihalyi‘s work?
He writes about the concept of flow. Great word!

Juliann beat me to it -- I was also going to suggest Csikszenmihalyi's work! (By the way, if you're wondering how on earth to pronounce that name, it's "Cheeks sent me high." You're welcome!) I think this is a wonderful word, and I look forward to seeing how it plays out for you.

Your words always fit you so well (from my perspective). This a great word for you, for your lifestyle, for your progression through words, for your year!
