New Year's Eve is the best night for dreaming, goal setting & most importantly, having fun! While most people usually make drastic plans, declarations and goals for their New Year's resolutions, they often find that those dreams are hard to live up to as the year goes on which can leave them feeling disappointed. A smart and unique alternative to resolutions is to choose a Word of the Year. This special word will represent your goals, dreams and hopes for the New Year in whichever aspect of your life you wish to improve. Whether you're hoping to be a better listener with your partner, earn new promotion at work, write your debut novel or finally summon the courage to sign up with an Improv group at your local theatre, your Word of the Year will stay in your mind in 2015 and inspire you to put it into action with all of your yearly goals. If you're looking for a fun activity to play with friends at a New Year's Eve party, you'll love this inspiring guessing game! Take some time to think of a word that will inspire you all year long and invite all of your friends to do the same. It should represent everything you wish you incorporate into every aspect of your life. Remember to keep your words secret as you write them out! After you have you and your guests have your specific words written, crumple them up and stick them into a mason jar. As the clock strikes 12 and the New Year officially begins, gather around the jar and open the pieces of paper. As a group, take turns guessing whose word belongs to whom and after the person has been named, they'll explain why they chose that word and what it means to them. It'll be inspiring to hear about their goals and aspirations for the New Year. It will also create a level of support just knowing that your friends know about your dreams!
