Having never believed in the premise nor efficacy of new year resolutions, I never made them. As an alternative to this rather banal practice, I came across the idea of having a word to sum up the direction that the coming year should take.
For example, perhaps someone chooses the word "door" for their WotY. It could mean that he/she wishes to explore new opportunities or work towards making new connections in the coming year - the opening of new doors. It could also mean that he/she wants to close the doors to past hurts and negative experiences.
What should my Word of the Year for 2016 be?
