We Get to Choose

| written by Alece Ronzino | 5 comments

The start of a new year doesn’t hold any magical powers for fresh starts. Unfortunately there’s no bippity-boppity-boo that occurs on January 1st to bring to life the whole “new year, new me” mantra. Nah… It’s just another day. Just another month.


The start of a new year does hold the promise of clean slates and new horizons and blank pages waiting to be filled. It drips with potential, as we look back to take stock and look ahead at what’s in front of us: both known and unknown. It bursts wide open with the ever-present reminder that while there’s so much that’s out of our control, we still get to choose. We get to choose how we will respond to what comes our way. We get to choose who we want to be — in the midst of the joys as well as the heartaches. We get to choose what we want to set our sights on.

We have those choices always. This time of year is just really good at reminding me to be more intentional with my decisions.

I’d love to hear what word you’ve chosen to focus on this year, and why. If you feel like sharing, please do!

Oh, The Power of a Word!

I am a newbie at the One Word 365 concept: choosing A WORD to take you through the year with regards to personal growth. I am not sure about you, but my track record with New Year’s resolutions is rather dismal. As 2021 was approaching, I was contemplating to resolve, or not to resolve? A friend of mine whom I love and respect posted her ONE WORD 365. WOW. I was blown away by this concept. It hit me as wise and significant! I found the One Word 365...

You’ll Know It’s Your Word

I don’t even know where to begin with the ending of 2020 – there was so much I had hoped to accomplish and/or experience, especially given the explosive ending of 2019! But it is what it is, and we move on. So, for those “new to One Word 365″, every year I choose ONE word to focus on versus any resolutions. We all know what happens to those resolutions and within a couple of weeks we’ve given up. The idea of One Word 365 is to choose and focus...

Why One Word 365?

A decade ago I came to grips with the fact that I’m not a New Year’s resolutions girl.  Oh, I tried hard to be. I really did. Historically, I’d set goals and write out my resolutions. But a few months later – or, let’s be honest, a few weeks later — when I couldn’t even remember what my resolutions were, I felt like a miserable failure. So back in 2009, I made peace with the fact that I simply don’t work that way, and I came up with my...

New Year’s Resolutions in Just One Word

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...
