ThemeWords started as a yearly tradition at LifeCamp2007, where the idea was first proposed by Erica Douglass.Â Participants picked one word to serve as an over-arching theme for the upcoming year.Â I adopted this tradition in 2008, and am proud to see so many people participating in picking a ThemeWord for 2010!
It didn’t occur to me that the tradition of picking a ThemeWord had become so mainstream, until I was talking to my friend Ruth on the phone tonight.Â She mentioned that last year her ThemeWord had been FLOURISH.Â And then I remembered that I’d had several other conversations with friends over the last few weeks – all talking about their ThemeWords for 2010.Â Somehow from the time that first LifeCamp was held and today – the idea of ThemeWords had become an active meme.
Here are some of the #ThemeWords that my friends have chosen for 2010:
And my #ThemeWord for 2010 – ADVENTURE.
Incidently – I just asked my friend Michael Cummings what his #ThemeWord was for 2010 – and he replied ADVENTURE.Â But I said it first 😉
