'Riding your edge' to find your word for 2023
I'm still choosing my Word for this year and I agree on the notion of there needing to be just one - I had two last year and I actually chose a third half way through the year as it was something that kept coming up for me (experiment). Having dabbled with these three, there was still definitely a main focus. So I feel extra, supporting words can be helpful...there are no rules. I enjoyed reading what you wrote about 'Paris', a word as a feeling. I'm playing with the word 'soar' in the same many, it evokes such a feeling for me.
My words so far: openness, visible, expand, soar, forwards, surrender, freedom, fulfilment
Well, you know what I keep saying:
If we would spend just a bit more time in our comfort zone, the world would be a happier place!
My words so far are: truth, freedom, death, end, grief, and my current favourite breathe and Coraline
Hi Luisa, this really resonated. I’ve been using the term ‘recovering perfectionist’ to describe myself for a while, too, and I think it really helps to remind me that I still have those tendencies and, more crucially, that they can be overcome. Thank you for sharing this. I look forward to reading more of your musings in due course.
Why constrain yourself to a single word? Tidy, but is it realistic? Enjoyed the post as always, and have you to thank for my expanded playlist.
Well I thought I’d decided but with ‘Paris’ you’ve given me all sorts of wild ideas for different kinds of words! Thank you!
I enjoyed this read thanks Luisa. I’ve not tried snowboarding but I felt the same when I tried windsurfing. Sort of felt I should be trying it despite the daily fear and anxiety over it! I’ve stopped trying now. And love to embrace my comfort zone!
