My One Word for 2019 is……

Yesterday, I recapped my One Word selections since 2015 with a summary of how well it worked for 2018. Now that the gifts are opened, holiday get togethers are finished and we enter into a new year, it’s time for me to focus on another word.

Resolutions, while made with good intentions, inevitably are forgotten by March. I’ve found by choosing one word to focus on for the year gives me a fighting chance to make lasting changes in my life.

It may sound odd, but I spend a lot of time thinking about this one word. It always relates to what’s been going on in my life and what direction I’d like to steer it for the future. Lots of words float through my head, but one eventually rises to the top.

This year, my One Word is:

Mindful = Mind-Full

mind·ful / mīn(d)fəl / adjective
conscious or aware of something; aware, conscious, sensible, alive, alert, acquainted, heedful

  1. Mindfulness and Mind Fullness – great words to adopt. It’s so easy to become fully absorbed by life, and forget to still your mind and heart for awhile, to become aware. I have never adopted a word, other than “enough”, which I need to remind myself I have sometimes.

  2. Lisa, I LOVE your One Word for 2019 because it’s one that hits home for me as well. I really like how you said this…

    “Mindfulness is related to (being) Present, but I think it goes deeper. It’s an awareness in everything we do, think and feel. Being mindful allows us to gain insight and awareness into ourselves as well as making us more aware of the well-being of those around us.”

    That is so true because mindfulness can be included within so many things, as you so perfectly shared–“emotional, physical, mental, spiritual and relational areas of my life for the better, regardless of circumstances.”

    This year, I especially want to be more mindful and consciously aware of listening and trusting my “inner voice” as it directs me because I have a feeling this year will be a year of change for me. And a much-welcomed change.

    Thanks so much for sharing, my friend. Happy 2019!

    P.S. Love your photograph!

  3. In a similar camp – no resolutions, instead a theme for the year. As our 19 y.o. says, “If you want to improve yourself or something about your life, why would wait until some arbitrary date? Just get started!” Sounds like you have some well-established rituals, including prayer, to help you stay on track. Best wishes for a fulfilling year.
