Invite to Word Hop 2013

The Fly Tribe invites you to join us for our Word Hop 2013.  Towards the end of the year we choose a word that will be our guide or theme for the following year.

In early January 2013 write your Word Hop 2013 blog post about the One Little Word you have chosen to describe your intentions/guide/theme/mentor for 2013.  On Monday, January 7th 2013 I will publish another blogpost where you can link your Word Hop 2013 blog post and leave a comment with the word you have chosen in it.  When you have time during the month you can hop around to other people's blogs and read about their word and leave a comment so they know you popped by.

If you would like to create a piece of art to celebrate your word that would be awesome - would love to see it. Would love you to pin it to the board I have started

If you would like to put it on Instagram then use the #flytribewordhop2013 so we can check it out.

 If you would like to read what other people chose for their word in 2012 then check out the Fly Tribe Word Hop page for links.

Here's the link for the button for you to put on your blog:

This idea started with Ali Edwards and she writes:


Can you identify a single word that sums up what you want for yourself in 2012? It can be something tangible or intangible. It could be a thought, or a feeling, or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something that has personal meaning for you. This is not your mother's word or your spouse's word or your child's word - this is YOUR word.

One little word can have big meaning in your life if you allow yourself to be open to the possibilities. And here's one thing that is totally interesting: sometimes a word will pop into your brain and it will not make any sense to you right now. Give it some time. Let it percolate a bit. I have often found that our hearts speak to us in very unique ways. Maybe this is a word you need to hear but just aren't ready for it yet.

Again, be open to the possibilities.

We would also like the thank Ali Edwards for inspiring us and creating a space for us to grow as individuals and to come together as a Tribe. Thanks, Ali!

Thanks everyone for joining in, if you have any questions then leave them in the comments below and I'll answer them.  I look forward to reading your Word Hop 2013 posts.

  13. Thank you for this reminder, Becky. I've been choosing a Word of the Year for several years now and love it so much more than making a resolution. I had actually first heard of Word of the Year from Christine Kane. She now even has a tool box to help you with your Word of the Year. It's way cool. You can check it out here:

    Here's to 2013 and our following of The Word!
