My Word for 2021: Shine

 


I’ll confess when I first read these words from Amanda Gorman’s poem for the presidential inauguration, I was somewhat disturbed. Not because the words weren’t eloquent and profound, but because I’d selected shine as my word for 2021 and hadn’t yet revealed it.  Announcing it after her poem went viral seemed a bit like hopping on the proverbial bandwagon. But maybe links to former posts (below) will provide proof that this word was already on my radar months ago. If those don’t convince you, check out these cute cards I purchased at the beginning of the year. 

Hopefully, one of these little cards will add
a bit of light to someone's day.

If you're still not persuaded  . . . well, the call to see and share light in  today's world isn't a bad bandwagon to hop on.

I won’t repeat what I’ve already said in my previous posts but will briefly sum them up: Look for the shiny things; be the shiny thing in someone else’s life. In 2021, I’ll share from time to time the shiny things that brighten my life and in doing so will perhaps shed a tiny beam of light into a reader's life. 


Wishing you a year filled with shiny things!

(Please share some of the shiny things you’ve experienced in the comments below or on Facebook.)


Keep Looking for Shiny Things
