Word of the Year – Enneagram Edition


Well, yesterday wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be. Thankfully, I didn’t have to be to school until 9:00, so today will be the first day of my alarm going off at 6:00 again. It was good seeing my colleagues yesterday, and it’s always great to get students back in the building. I know, even for my own family, it will be good to get back on a schedule and a routine.

Anyway, we went to a New Year’s Eve get together, and my friend had us each draw three words and we shared them as our “Word of the Year.”

I’m sure you’ve seen those graphics where they say the first three words you see are your words for the year. That’s where she got this idea.

Anyway, the words I drew were: creativity, reset, and calm.

I like those words. I’m generally pretty creative, and I’ve said that this blog is my main source of creativity. January is a perfect time to reset on all the things. I want to get back to tracking what I eat and working out. I also want to take the time to plan and get organized. My birthday is next weekend, and I’m always pretty reflective this time of the year. I think with turning another year older and the start of a new year, I was meant to have a January birthday. It’s just a natural time to hit the reset button. Lastly, I actually feel like January is a more calm month in general after the holidays, and it’s just what I need.

I will keep these three words in mind this year.

I’ve shared this account before, and am always curious to see what has to say about 5w6.

I also saw this on Instagram, and it stuck with me as good intentions for this year:

I hope to have a great year…both 2023 and 43. I hope the same can be said for you!

  1. I love your three words! I hope you have the birthday planned that you want! I just listened to The Lazy Genius podcast about this topic. It was so good. She said you have to plan for the birthday you want and you can’t expect people to mind read. She was spending a night in a hotel alone in her city.

    1. Hadley even looked at our family calendar and said , “mom, I hardly have anything scheduled!” She has a very busy second quarter with school, dance and volleyball. Hayden will be the busier one now.


  2. This was a great read! I followed that account the last time you mentioned her, and it’s now one of my favs. I’m a 1w9. I love knowing my own personality type, but I’m also interested in finding out those of my friends. I think it says a lot about us and even impacts the friends we make. Have a good day with your students, Jen!
