This year, important conversations kept me from thinking too much about my new word. It wasn’t even in the forefront of my mind until about a week ago. I kind of thought “hmmm… I wonder what word will be for 2023?” I thought of a few and they just didn’t stick. Then I was reading something and not a word, but a short phrase came into focus. I didn’t want THAT one. Nope. That’s not right.
When it registered in my heart, I knew immediately it was right and true.
