It's become common practice for folks to choose one word to serve as an umbrella for the coming year. There's even a website: One Word 365. They encourage you to choose...
One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long.I did this in 2012 when I chose "peace." It was the right call. My life can often be chaotic and harried and swirling. And that's just inside my own head.
Last year, I chose "leap." And boy did I do some leaping. I took trips with people I met on the Internet. I started podcasts with people I met on the Internet. I fell hard for a fella I met on the Internet. I soft launched a cake pop business and quickly shut it down. I joined a new church. I quit my job.
Some of these jumps landed soft on a cloud and some landed solid on the concrete. But I leapt.
This year, I've chosen the only thing that makes sense to me.
Merriam-Webster has two definitions for "waffle:"
: to be unable or unwilling to make a clear decision about what to do
