Wonder: Word of the year 2016

Happy New Year! The first post of the year! Upon entering this new year I have failed to come up with any resolutions, but am ok with this because they don’t last long anyway. When I first started this website in January 2015 I choose a word to have in the back of my mind throughout the year. The word of the year for 2015 was Forward, there was a lot of things happening at the time and I had to keep moving forward. Well all the moving forward has lead me to where I am today, new friendships, new readership and many new friends and content creators throughout the cyber sphere

I was trying to think of a word for this year, while writing this post I realized one year ago this month I started my website. Throughout the year this website has become much more then that and its all from moving forward. I had a few words that I wanted to choose for this year, but this is the one that had the winning vote. 

Word of the year for 2016
Wonder [Noun]
A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration caused by 
seeing something that is very surprising, beautiful, amazing  

Lately I have been enjoying what is around me, people, places, scenery, sunrises, sunsets, rainbows and the feeling I get when I acknowledge them. It is harder to put into words then I thought. The best way I thought to describe it was a picture.


This picture I took while on my last hike of 2015 on New Year's Eve morning, walking the trails and being out in the desert on a cool morning with some good company. I just stood there in awe sometimes at what was around me all this vast open space when I was use to just seeing part of it from the roadway. I am hoping to come across more of these feelings this year as I am more aware of them. Off to 2016 we shall go and hoping its an adventure for everyone, Happy New Year.

Do you have a Word of the Year? What are some of your goals for 2016?

Until next time
Watchtower over and out
