Are you looking for a word of the year to help you create a focus for this year and a vision for your future? This list of words has over 300 ideas to help you brainstorm qualities so you can pick the word that’s right for you. Plus you can download a printable version of the list along with a set of questions designed to help you determine just who you want to become this year. Updated for 2020.

Yesterday’s post discussed why I like to choose a word of the year rather than make a New Year’s resolution and gave an overview of the process I use to determine just what my word of the year should be. But I left out one secret: I suffer terribly from “blank sheet of paper” syndrome. If you sit me down in an empty room and tell me to brainstorm a list of words, my mind immediately goes blank. I need something to help inspire me as a starting point!

If you’re like me, then, here’s a list of over 300 ideas you could consider for your word of the year. You can also download this list as a printable along with the questions I use to help clarify just what my theme for the year should be. I hope this helps you get started. If you pick a word for the year, let me know if the comments!

Hi! I'm Katy and I started Midlife Rambler when my youngest child was a senior in high school. I was staring at the coming empty nest and wondering what was next for me. Does that sound like you? Then you’ll love our community of fun, feisty women. We’re looking forward to finally focusing (just a little) on ourselves and talking about all the things we enjoy: fashion, beauty, travel, entertaining, and being the best possible you.
