New Year’s Resolutions in Just One Word

| written by Alece Ronzino | 5 comments

The past month has been challenging and exhausting (to say the least) as an unanticipated surgery led to a MRSA infection. In the midst of all this, Terry Bulger, a reporter with Nashville’s local NBC news affiliate (WSMV News 4), reached out to interview me about One Word 365. I was unavailable due to everything I was dealing with, but he so graciously used footage from previous interviews and still put together a great piece about our global movement.

I’m so thankful for Terry’s efforts to help spread the word about the power of living with intentionality. And I’m grateful that these sorts of things happen even when I’m completely out of pocket.

I never cease to be amazed at how One Word 365 has taken on a life of its own… and is far bigger than me. Thank you — all of you — in the global One Word 365 community for showing up, being brave, and leaning into your words together this year!

On Choosing Your Word

| written by Alece Ronzino | 6 comments

Do you have your One Word for 2020? Maybe a word has already risen to the surface for you. Or perhaps you have a list of possibilities and feel unsure which to choose. Or maybe you’re still drawing a complete blank and have no clue where to start… Wherever you are in the process, here are some helpful things to consider when choosing your One Word: Focus on being rather than doing. Different than resolutions, your One Word isn’t a constant reminder of what you “should be doing”. Instead, it stands to inspire...

A Word that Propels You Toward the Best Version of Yourself

| written by Rey Lopez | 3 comments

My name is Rey, and I suffer from severe writer’s block. Considering my word for 2019 was “write,” this poses a bit of a problem. But this recent struggle to put words to screen has also shown me how important our word of choice is in shaping how we see ourselves. As you consider what your word for 2020 will be, you want it to reflect an aspirational identity, a facet of your humanity that will move you forward toward the best version of yourself. The challenge is finding...

One Word with Teenagers, an Interview with My Daughter

| written by Rachel Pieh Jones | 3 comments

In January, I asked my 18-year old twins and my 13-year old if they would like to join me in choosing a word for 2019. The twins ignored me, their prerogative as newly-minted adults. My 13-year old was interested and mom still has some influence (I’m going to live it up for another five years, I hope). She chose the word FREEDOM. Recently, I interviewed her about how the year of freedom is going. We were walking our dog through Djibouti’s streets, on our way to check out a...

Finding Healing One Word at a Time

| written by Mandi Hart | 0 comments

In 2015, a horrific event shaped my life so profoundly that I would spend the next few years healing and recovering.  My daughter and I were involved in an armed robbery in our home. Four men came with weapons and tied me up while they proceeded to steal just about everything of value in our house. Forgiveness for the men came swiftly, but what shocked me was the long-term effects of the trauma in my mind and emotions. Along my way of learning to live without fear, I stumbled...
