One Little Word® 2015 | The Reading Of The Words

I want to take a minute to thank everyone who added their word to the comments in my last One Little Word® post. I read through every single one and I love reading about your own personal reasons why. 

I invited Liz Lamoreux to read the word list again this year for your listening enjoyment. Here you go:

    When you first shared your word, I thought, "It's that time and I don't even have what it takes to choose." I'd been ruminating on the need for a word for 2015 and just couldn't find it in myself. I prayed about it. I left it alone thinking "It'll come eventually, sometimes that's what happens." But it didn't. Nothing. I sat down earlier this week to blog that there would be no "One Little Word" for me this year, I was just too weary and didn't have it in me. I'm still grieving (my Daddy died suddenly in late March 2014). And as I typed that particular thought on my blog, my mind went racing back to the morning after Daddy died. I had read a verse in Psalm 119 that talked about GRIEF and STRENGTH. WHAM! There we go! I HAD MY WORD!!!! And so, my word for 2015 is STRENGTH. I have seen my mom exhibit it in ways that have astounded me over the past 9 months and I am hoping to grow it in myself over the next 12.

    Hi there, this is my first time in this journey. My word is responsible and it's more as a reminder to be responsible TO myself to take care of my health/weight, to be responsible in my marriage for ensuring I don't take my husband for granted, to be responsible for giving my young teen boy the space he needs to grow.

    I didn't see my word on the list it is Over. I like all the combinations this word offers plus it is an adverb and an adjective and a preposition.

    My word for the year is GENEROSITY. I want to focus on giving and receiving in abundance - on a generosity of spirit towards others and to myself.

    MY OLW this year is "accomplish." My husband gave it to me - when he woke up on January 1st, the first thing he said was "this will be a year of accomplishments for us." I hope so: I am on track to submit my PhD thesis in March and so become a doctor sometime in 2015 and we are planning the end-to-end walk (the length of the UK, just under 1,000 miles) as a summer holiday. So far so good - on the 3rd I had good news (sold a short story). :)

    My word is Strength. I see it in Spanish and Portuguese! This word just came to me. Last year was very difficult and the effects are still there. I need to make some big steps in my business and life. Other words I had written down were courage and perseverance and as I began to look up quotes on Pinterest those words fell under strength also. I am going to work hard to keep up with my word. I already see there is a lot to learn.

    This is truly one of my favorite of your annual blogs associated with OLW. It's always such a spiritual experience for me to listen to Liz reading the list. So glad that you did it again this year, Ali!

    My root word for 2015 is COMFORT and not yet on the list. I will be including variations: comfortable, comforted, comforting, and several others.
    After several challenging years, I am focusing on what I need and what I am willing to give or give up to enjoy comfort in my home, heart, head, and body.
