My Word is Word

This year I am not making a resolution. Instead I am following a more recent direction by choosing a word; a word for my yearly focus, a word to help me change or to remind me of what is important, a word that will help me reach my goals, a word that will be a daily reminder of what it is that I am trying to accomplish….

My word for 2021 is…. word.

I want to write more words. During the pandemic, I knew it was a perfect time to ramp up my writing…. I certainly had more time to devote to it. I wasn’t very successful, though, so I want to improve on the quantity and the quality of what I write.

I want to choose my words carefully. Those of you who know me are aware that I like to make people laugh. I want to choose only those words which make people feel good and smile.

I want to write more letters and notes to people. Not because I have something truly important to say, but because people need to know I am thinking about them and want them to know they are appreciated.

Yesterday, while youtubing, I came upon a recent recording of a song originally by the BeeGees. The song is “Words” and it is a new recording duet with Barry Gibb (The BeeGees) and Dolly Parton. Barry Gibb wrote the song along with his brothers, Dolly’s voice adds emotion to an already poignant song. Both artists have used words throughout their careers to tell stories and make their way in the world. In addition, Dolly has brought words to so many children through her Imagination Library.

I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do and I hope you find a word that resonates with you.

    Wonderful….WORDS. I like that we will be “hearing” more words from you. Your words always do make me smile…I can “hear” your voice reflection as you speak and that makes it all that much more special. 💕
