I had all sorts of plans for this post. Plans that involved spending some time creating a visual to introduce my word. But life has given me a different path this last week and time ran out. So this will be simple.
My word for 2020 began to show up a few months ago. I was in a study group and there it was, more than once or twice, in our readings. In fact, this word had been tapping me on the shoulder for weeks so I decided it should go on my list of possible words. The definition definitely speaks to me but it was the list of synonyms that grabbed my attention. Stay. Remain. Abide. Continue. Rest. These were all things I want to invite into my life.
REST has taught me to stop and listen. To stay with a thought. To remain in that place of unknowing, uncertainty.
If you are still looking for a word, Ali Edwards has a quiz.
I also found this site.
Happy new year, new word to each of you. Honore has volunteered to host a monthly reflection on our words so do go visit her post about her word.
