2019 Word Of The Year Reveal

2018 was the Year of Settling In…and now at the very end of the year, as I look back, I think it may have meant more along the lines of settle in because this year is going to be a BUMPY ride…and it surely has…and I am not quite sure how much it is settling down for 2019, but, I think the worst of it is behind us (knock on wood).

For 2019 comes another ‘word set’ rather than a single word.  Also, as I did last year, I struggled with this one and tried to force it into every single—any single—other direction I could push it—and it refused…

And so…my Word Of the Year for 2019 is…Mise En Place…

According to Wikipedia, it means “putting in place” or “everything in its place”…and that, above all else, is exactly what I need and what I have longed for for quite a time now.

Wish me luck, because I am not entirely sure how things will be put in their place this year—although I must say—I am very much looking forward to it happening…and staying that way…

Whimsical Wednesdays 2019 — Theme Announcement

Coming every Wednesday in 2019 will be an animal for you to interact with.  use this as a time to explore the animal itself, or perhaps journey with a new spirit animal, whatever takes your fancy.

I have tried to maintain a neutral animal type when possible–for example, I say dog and not husky, or poodle, or spitz.  You get the picture.  However, there are times when a specific animal will be used because my son helped me pick out some of the animals and he was quite adamant about using certain animals (brush up on your lemurs, people…and be sure to thank the Kratt Brothers for all their hard work–with my son, it really does pay off…)

I will suggest an animal for the week–although you are free to choose any animal you like or that calls to you at any time–and I will offer up a few questions to help you in pursuit of a connection with the given (or any other) animal…

Enjoy the New Year’s coming prompts.
