My word for 2022 is Kindness. Kindness towards myself & Kindness towards others. We can always use more of that in this world, and there's certainly room for me to do a better job. 🙂

My word is thrive. I want to do more than just survive the coming year.

My word is "inclusion". Each of us need to work harder to be more inclusive in our individual and daily lives, to work to promote inclusion in our societies to overcome inequity and divisivness, and other social impediments to a stronger social fabric and more cohesive body politic.

@BrredaH912687  I love your word!  As someone who had struggled with kidney stones for the last few years, that's a big one for me.

Try drinking 8 oz of water every hour or every time you go to the bathroom. It’s not a lot at one time and it’s easy to get your 8+ glasses a day. Good luck!

I have chosen the word WONDER. My husband chose EXPERIENCE. I think both are exciting and can go in several directions. I am excited for my first year of retirement

My word of the year for '22 is "healthy "...and it applies to several areas of my life.

Better 

Let's get better. Let's have a better year.  Let's treat ourselves and others better.  I like the word because it doesn't judge,  it just asks to make some progress,  some advancements,  get a little farther. 

My word for 2022 is PURPOSE! I will set goals that add value to me, my community, and all mankind! 

Newbie

Transformation.  Letting go and letting in.  Allowing the Universe to right itself, and being willing to align and participate with it, through my own conscious actions.

I’ve been going through possible words for  2022, and keep coming back to “presence.” That includes focus, working on one thing at a time, and reading others to fulfill their needs. 

Contributor

My word is hopeful.

My word is introspection. Since we now have a very contagious version of Covid with Omicron, we have time to reflect on ourselves and see if there is something we can work on to become the best US we can be. Maybe learn a little more compassion and kindness, less judgement, more hope, less despair, more tolerance, less complaining! Happy New Year to you all!

My word is adaptation.  I'm moving into a Senior Residence this Spring.  I really don't want to, but I think it's the best thing for me to do, as I'm approaching 87, and slowing down.  I hate to lose my independence and have to follow rules, but I can't take care of my house the way I used to, and my sons worry about me.  I hope I can adapt to the situation successfully.

I sold my house last year, moved into an apartment and Love It! Furnace quit at the house,  it was up to me to fix.  Furnace quit at the apartment, they brought in a heater and fixed it fast.  I love not having to remember all the maintenance and upkeep of the house.  It is freedom!  87 isn't old unless you let it be. Enjoy your new place.

@bh523 I first want to say, welcome to the AARP online community! It's great to have you join us. Next, I really like your word "adaptation."  The perfect word for what you will be going through as you move to a new living environment.  Change ( the unknown ) can be unsettling, and sometimes a bit scary.  There are still many things that you will be able to do for yourself in the "Senior Residence." Wishing you the best of luck, as you journey into this next chapter in your life.

My word for 2022 is optimism.  After 2 years of going on 3 of the Pandemic, I feel we have to believe its end is in sight.
