Themes, phrases and words of the year are an excellent way to set a Guiding Star towards how you want to live your year, life or season.
Typically mine come from a desire to add something to my life as opposed to changing it.
Last year the word was “Calm” With the chaos of the previous two years I wanted to add more moments of Calm, slowing down and deliberation. It worked! I take my mornings slower now, my anxiety is less and I started the fun habit of bullet journalling.
With Calm a permanent fixture in my life now what did I want to add? By October of 2022 it came to me.
For decades I’ve reflected I didn’t enjoy my childhood. I longed to just grow up and had an extremely difficult time playing and being a kid. While many see me as a goofy and silly person I find I really want to embody more whimsy and play in my life.
For me Whimsy means playful, spontaneous, colorful, cute, and creative.
How will I add more Whimsy? Leaving googly eyes hidden at friends houses, collecting stickers, and adding more color to my home and office.
For photography I will capture more goofy in-between images, action, colorful backdrops and silly poses. (In addition to all the regal and posed images.)
Do you choose a word or phrase for the year? I would love to know what it is and why!
