Word of the Year - 2016: Nifty

At the beginning of 2015, I was challenged by my friend to pick a "word of the year" - my mantra so to speak for 2015.  You can read about it here:  http://dickybirdsnest.blogspot.com/2015/01/a-word-for-new-year.html

STEADFAST:  loyal, faithful, committed, devoted, dedicated, dependable, reliable, steady, true, constant, solid, trusty, firm, determined, unwavering 

My challenge was to "stay the course."  

Overall, I would say that was a good word for my year.  

I've been thinking about a word for 2016....I will be 50 in 2016....and have already been working on my "50 things to do before I'm 50"  - so I chose this word - NIFTY.

I know it's almost cliche "nifty to be 50" however, if I were to ever use this word or phrase it would be this year.  

NIFTY:  good, skillful, effective, smart, clever, stylish

Look for my themed posts this year:  "Nifty to be Thrifty;"  "Nifty to be 50;"  "Nifty Ideas;" "50 Things to do Before I Turn 50" and "Nifty to be 'Fitty' (fitness...weight loss ideas)"  

I am looking forward to challenging myself this next year, becoming more skillful, effective and stylish....I'm already good and smart... lol

I hope you following along with me this year....I'm excited for what the Lord has in store for my 2016.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Good for you staying the course. It is not an easy thing to do. Hang in there.

OMG! I love this! I just turned 50 in November and spent the last three months before my birthday working on "50 Nice Things for Me before I turn 50." It was very fun and I am super glad I did that. You can read bout it on Franticmommy.com. Stopping by from SITS!
