My word for 2021 is content, both adjective and noun.
Noun: state of mind which results from satisfaction with present circumstances
Adjective: having the desire limited to present enjoyments
It’s even a verb: to rest or be satisfied; to give satisfaction to
Content is related intent, from the root word tenere, to hold or stretch. Intent is focusing on stretching outward, while content is focusing on holding. So my intention for 2021 is to focus on what I have and be content. I feel I don’t do this enough, and it prevents me from really enjoying my life as it is. I want to slow down a little, settle in, and focus on the content of my life and find the joy there. I’m in a good place right now, and I am grateful for that.
