My word for 2018.
I loved choosing this word. It truly was a word that fit my year, my writing, my life.
Sure. Dependable. Reliable. Constant. Unwavering. Steady.
All the things I needed in order to see things through this year. I needed to be sure of myself to pursue my writing goals. I needed to be dependable and reliable, so I would keep writing. Constant, unwavering support from writing friends made things fun and encouraging. Steady. Something to tell myself whenever I found myself wavering.
I had created three quick messages which I kept close by to remind me throughout the year:
When I took the Seriously Creative online class with Laura Gate-Lupton recently, we created process goals to support our outcome goal. I found my process goals were the steps I need to help me be steadfast.
When I keep my focus on these smaller actions, I’m able to make progress without overwhelming myself. By going slow and steady, I see actual progress. Steadfast!
I’m really going to miss this word next year.
But with a new year, comes a new word. I wonder what my word for 2019 will be?
