Word of the year 2022

Several years back, I was inspired by Boss Lady Mondays co-host Lisa Humber to start choosing a word to live by for the year.

For a couple of years, my word was LOVE—in the sense of choosing love over fear.

Then, I fell out of the practice and was reminded of it once again when Proof Strategies VP of Client Relationships Liz Carson recently posted her word on LinkedIn.

My song of the year came very quickly to mind, but the word took a while.

In the end, I chose KINDNESS. Inspired by my recent participation in Mindfulness Without Borders’ Mindfulness Ambassador Program workshop, facilitated by my friend Valerie Gow, this word really resonates with me on both a personal and community level.

What’s your word for 2022?
