Setting aside my word

My journey with this word, REST, began in October 2018 when I read Rhythms of Rest. I didn’t know right away that REST would be my word for 2019, I just knew I needed more rest in my life. It has been a good word. Not one that has resulted in scrapbook pages but one that has helped me begin to balance the rhythms of work, play, and rest.

Last month I came upon this list of ideas that has given me new ways of inviting REST into my life. This is a word that I hope will continue to show up in my life.

My new word has already begun to show up. I will be back next week to write more about it. I am not planning to continue a monthly link-up in 2020 but I look forward to Reading what words you have chosen (or words that have chosen you!).

Thanks for coming along on this rest-filled adventure with me.

  1. I like that list of ideas! And I like how you incorporated rest into your daily life! It a time when busy-ness is the “in” thing – being purposely restful seems even more important! Thank you so much for hosting us this year!

  2. I’m glad that you have been able to incorporate rest into your life over the past year. I hope you continue to do so in the year ahead, and I look forward to finding out your word for 2020.

  3. So much appreciate your invitation to join you as we lived with our 2019 words! Mine- habit-shall stay with me in 2020 along with what-I-think/favor will be my 2020 word of choice. To be continued…and many thanks for sharing your experience. Rest is something we all need and you have led the way. See you next week.
    Cheers~

  4. Thank you for hosting this year, these monthly check ins really helped me to keep me word in mind all year. I look forward to hearing about your word for 2020.

  5. My word last year was explore. As per usual, I didn’t learn lessons I expected. Instead I learned what keeps me from exploring is fear, still I did explore the area somewhat, and found new stimulating online sources for learning. I will bring that word along this year but might also choose another like “look” for 20 20. Thanks for the links, I’ll go look now. LeeAnna

  6. I learned so much from you and your word this year, too – thank you for sharing! That list of Rest and Rewards is so good. One of my favorite rewards these days IS rest 🙂
