Perseverance is My Word for 2021!

Perseverance is My Word for 2021!

Focus flopped in 2020

My word for 2020 was FOCUS and with the odd way we’ve all been living, that went out the window.  I have struggled to find a word for 2021 since we are all living in this insane world. 

Deciding on my word for 2021

I had my word narrowed down to FOUR words (faith, health, breakthrough, or creation) and decided that none of them were as important for me except to PERSEVERE.

Whatever happens in 2021, I need to persevere, not just exist.  It feels like I’ve just been existing while waiting for this to be over. 

The definition for persevere is:

‘to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly.’

Keep moving forward!

What this means to me is that no matter what happens in the world, I will not give up on any of my personal goals.  If that means adjusting them to suit the circumstances I find myself in, then that is what I will do.

I’m done feeling like I’m stuck in the mud.  What I must do is to keep moving forward. Goals will be made at the beginning of each quarter and they will be adjusted according to circumstances but I will not give up.  I promise myself that I will do my best with what is possible and I will persevere.

I hope you all do too!

What is your word for 2021?

Happy New Year!

    Hi Rita, a great start to the new year! It’s always great to have goals, and even better if you keep your eye on it and do your best to attain it. And you’re right, it’s important to adjust your goals to what’s happening in your life – everything should be flexible for the greater good. I don’t have a word for 2021, but I do enjoy reading about others’ words for the year. I’m really looking forward to reading more from you this year, and also hearing about your goals and your successes! x

  2. Hi Rita – a great #WOTY choice. I know what you mean about feeling a bit stuck and like we’re treading water. A lot of people seem to think that 2021 will be the end of all that happened in 2020 – I don’t see it as an instantaneous change – more a gradual acceptance of our new normal and hopefully a reduction in cases as the vaccine goes out (if it actually works on all the new strains!) It’s been a strange year and I think we need to accept that and work with it, or we get defeated and resentful. I’ll look forward to seeing where you go with your word (as you know, mine’s “Cultivate”)
