The idea that one little word can have a big impact on your life stopped me in my tracks and my word came to me immediately. Serenity.
- (n.) The quality or state of being serene; clearness and calmness; quietness; stillness; peace.
- (n.) Calmness of mind; eveness of temper; undisturbed state; coolness; composure.
To face the world with equanimity and assurance - precisely the opposite of how I have faced the world in the past year - and the thought filled me with excitement and inspiration.
So much more joyful than creating that same dreary list of resolutions again, non?
What's your word?
