Calm- my word for 2018 #woty

I hadn’t really thought about a word of the year but looking back on 2017, I realised that perhaps setting a word for the year, did set the tone for the year ahead .

My word of the year for 2017 patience and I think I pretty much was patient for the most part .

So logically , I should continue with this mellow mood and choose a word that takes this further . I choose CALM as my #woty.

I need to be calm or at least more calm. Unexpected events tend to fluster me and when I get upset, I lose my balance . I make irrational decisions and make mistakes .

So I need to be calm .

There are times in life when people annoy me , irritate me , impose their ideas and thoughts on me . At such times I need to be calm.

As the last few hours of 2017 slip into 2018 I feel a sense of calm. No longer am I apprehensive about what the year will bring.

I will be calm.

Events don’t always turn out the way they are meant to be . Disappointment is par for the course . Relationships turn sour and the cake doesn’t always rise .

But I will be calm .

I will find my calm .

I hope all of you do so too!

Happy New Year !

    That’s a perfect word and I think I need to be calm as well . I too tend to get impatient overly emotional and flustered when things beyond my control go a different way. It’s impoetant to learn acceptance and move on with peace . Wish you a happy new year

      The year has started quite violently with public disturbances in my city but thankfully it hasn’t affected me so I can still stay calm…..Praying that this nonsense stops soon
