Last year I was encouraged to find a word for the year. My word for 2013 was Forward, chosen for a variety of reasons that you can read about here. I loved my word choice and really truly thought about it often throughout 2013.
I found it the other day in the crossword puzzle . The answer to 43 down was Imagine. The clue: John Lennon classic. It’s funny how sometimes you just know when you’ve found exactly what you’re looking for.
Imagine has all sorts of sentiments about it and it’s the root of several other words. Imagination suggests creative ability and imaginative is defined as having a lively imagination. Imagism promises the expression of ideas and emotions through clear precise images. All intriguing.
I will keep my word close and think of it often to inspire me and encourage my mind to think of new ideas, look at things in different ways and to never be afraid of trying something new. I want my little pillow company to grow, and with imagination as my source of encouragement I feel ready to jump into the new year. Plus, what a great song, right??
I encourage everyone to consider choosing a word as inspiration for the coming year. Who knows what impact it might have on your life. Imagine the possibilities!
Happy New Year!!
