Word of the Year 2019 #WOTY #WOTY2019

This is my last post of 2018 and this is about the coming year.  Every year I set a word for that year and try to abide by it in all circumstances.

In 2016, I have set the word of the year as 'Change' and there are a lot of changes that happened in my life especially relocating to another country, leaving the job that I enjoyed working for almost 11 years etc., But, I believed that change is only for good and accepted it without regret.

In 2017, I decided my word of the year to be 'Aggressive', though it might seem negative, I was bored of my routine life of household works and thus wanted to be aggressive in promoting for my dance classes and network with other people in the new place that we recently relocated to.

In 2018, I have set the word of the year as 'Positive spirit'. I have been mindful to every happening in my life, I tried to be positive, without losing cool and succeeded upto 90%. Once or twice negative thoughts have surrounded me and I felt, depressed. But, Overall I could stick around with this word and create positive vibes around me.

This coming year 2019, I want to set the word of the year as 'Slow down'. 

Yes, Fortunately, I have achieved my long-term goals and now, this is the time to slow down a bit and relax. I want to spend more time on things that I like - blogging, traveling, reading books etc., I want to continue improving my knowledge of software testing and focus on my dance classes. There is no hurry to achieve any goal but being mindful is important. So, I have decided to slow down a bit and enjoy every moment in 2019.

What is your word of the year? Word of the year is some word that we want to focus in the coming year. Think about it and let me know what you want to focus on in 2019.

Meanwhile, Accept my wishes for the happy new year :-) Celebrate and welcome the new year. I wish the new year brings you all good health, wealth and happiness.

Until next time,

  1. That's a good choice, Ramya. I can use some slowing down. In fact, I'm practicing it at the moment as I feel the clutter inside my head was taking me to places I never wanted to be in. Wishing you an enjoyable 2019! :)

    1. Thanks Vinitha. Yes, time to slow down and reduce stress.

  2. I like your choice of word. In a world that is moving around at a dizzying speed, it is good to slow down, and smell the flowers. Wishing you a fabulous 2019, Ramya!

  3. Slow down is a nice motto especially given the busyness of our lives. Wish you a happy new year and one that's at your pace!

  4. Sometimes it is good to slow down and look at things from a different perspective. More often than not, we seem to be flying by...

    I hope slowing down helps your year a lot, Ramya! :)
