Word of the Year Ideas

For the last few years I’ve been choosing a word (or, I will admit usually two!) for the year. I believe the original idea is from oneword365 and the premise is, rather than setting New Year’s Resolutions (that you might just quit by February, anyway) choose one word for how you’d like to feel, be, or live for the entire year.

To give you some examples, in previous years I’ve chosen words like: alignment, empower, thriving, enjoy, etc.

Choosing a word for the year is a great way to set the tone for your entire year. And I think incorporating your one word in your art journal is a great idea… and reminder!

But whether this is the first or twenty-first time you’ve chosen a word for the year, you might have a hard time coming up with one (or like me, two!) So I’ve put together this list of over 200 word of the year possibilities.
