One Little Word (Okay, Phrase) 2021


When I returned to this blog to write about my One Little Word, I was a little taken aback to realize I haven't written here for a year.  I think that really says it all about 2020.  Not all is lost, I did manage to do more journaling than in years past, but still...

Let's take an honest look at 2020.  


Last year I chose the word "simplify."  


I don't think 2020 was the year for that - and I certainly didn't mean to get myself stuck at home for most of the year.  

2020 was rough.  I eventually took the "simplify" sign off of my work space as it wasn't working there either.  All year I found myself asking if I chose the wrong word - or if it was exactly the word I needed.  Though I tried, there just didn't seem to be any simplifying any part of my life.  

So here I am staring 2021 down.  2021 you better step up!  What word will be a good fit for all that is to come?  

My past words:

As rough as 2020 has been, it has had some shiny spots.  It's made me realize that even when things are hard, you can find JOY.   

As I step into 2021, I know it will have its hard spots - and I know it will have its celebrations.  JOY seems the perfect quest.  Since I prefer actionable words, I think I'll go with a phrase this year and CHOOSE JOY.  

Let's go.  


  1. Simplify seemed to be a bit of a look into the future. YOur point of finding joy even when things are hard really grabbed me. I am going to spend sometime with this...

  2. What a great word for 2021!!!! I can think of lots of joyful events coming up.. I so enjoy reading your writing!
