The Word Of The Year 2021
Flyfour and I started thinking together about our word of the year a couple of weeks back. One of our evening walks was peppered with one or the other of us suddenly exclaiming a word and then continuing on with whatever conversation we were having and pretty soon it spilt over into us just shouting random words at each other waiting for the others approval or a reason as to why that word wasn't any good.
We knew what we wanted our word to mean.
We wanted it to mean something about building upon the foundations we had already built.
We wanted it to mean something about the walking and hiking (and when it's a bit drier biking) we were doing.
We wanted it to mean something for the way we worked.
We wanted it to mean something for the way our family worked.
We wanted it to mean something to us.
At one point I even googled "What words means put one foot in front of the other" and was rather disappointed that the word I couldn't quite put my finger on was "walk".
In the end, we decided upon Progress.
Progress because we had already started and we were progressing.
Progress because we were moving forward to a destination.
Progress because we want to advance more in our jobs.
Progress because our family is a work in progress.
So, here is to Progress in 2021.
