Choosing A Theme Word For Your Day #Happier #mind #soul #WordOfTheDay

I’ve still been enjoying Gretchen Rubin’s new podcast, Happier With Gretchen Rubin.  Last week on the podcast, they (she and her sister, Elizabeth Craft) talked about choosing a theme word for the year.

I love this idea.  Gretchen and Elizabeth each chose a theme word for their year, using the beginning of the school year as a fresh start and a chance to re-center and set goals.  Elizabeth chose novel – her goal is to finish her novel – and Gretchen chose vision, because she wants to develop a vision for her next project.  I instantly started thinking about what word I wanted to choose.

However, I don’t think my word is for the year; I think that my word is for the day.  Things-that-MatterI’ve been struggling a lot with the adoption wait, and I need a word to help me to re-focus and to center myself.  I need a word to help me to focus on the good in my life.  I need a word to help me appreciate everything around me, rather than living in anticipation of the moment to come.

Today, my word of the day is happy.  I spend so much time feeling sad, anxious, anticipatory, disappointed, worried.  I don’t like those words; there’s so much I have in my life to feel happy about, and I choose happy.
