I love linking to Lisa’s monthly Word of The Year link up. I’ve been trying to write the post for October for a couple of weeks now, but something or the other seems to come in the way. The latest was that both José and I have been down with quite a bad attack of the ‘flu. The irony is that I think we got the bug at a pathology lab when I went for a routine blood test! Anyway, it has set us back quite a bit physically and we’re recovering slowly. It seemed like through these 10 days I was being reminded that I need to be saying yes to gratitude no matter what!
Saying Yes To Gratitude
One of the main thoughts that kept reverberating in my mind in October was what are the themes and topics that are close to my heart.
Gratitude is certainly one of them. Readers of this blog will know how often I write on this subject. But I sense a calling to go deeper in this practice and in writing about it.
As if to affirm this decision of mine, I was asked to conduct a short course on Gratitude for a small group of employees from a corporate. I enjoyed doing this session and this has kickstarted an idea to offer courses on gratitude through the year.
So as I said ‘yes’ at the start of 2021, I’m saying a big YES to gratitude towards the end of it!
Too Early for 2022’s Word of the Year?
I usually start working on my WOTY for the following year in December. But this year, a word has been popping into my head, and then appearing mysteriously in stuff that I’m reading. For the first time, I discussed my word choice with José and he offered some insights on this that resonated with me.
I’m not telling you what the word is just yet, but I’m wondering if you have started working on your WOTY for 2022?
Have a wonderful month ahead!
