Usually, I post my word of the year on the 2nd, but I was so swamped I didn’t get to it. My 2015 Word of the Year is persevere. Many of you know that I am one class away from obtaining my Master of Science in Accounting. Its been a long, long, difficult journey but I am almost there. Yet, I am ready to give up. I don’t want to take another class. I don’t want to miss time with my children because my nose is buried in a book or computer screen.
You might not know, but each year the Merriam -Webster and Oxford dictionaries release words of the year. Recently, bloggers around the world have released their own personal words of the year – or mantras – to help them focus and stay committed in the new year to a project, dream, or goal.
This year, I have chosen persevere.
I am so close to my degree, I can see the finish line but I struggle with the race. Another 12 weeks of nose-to-the-grind, research paper writing… I want to be done. So, I decided my 2015 Word of the Year should be persevere. That’s what I need to do… persevere… and get it done.
