Word of the Year 2021

by | Dec 31, 2020 | Word of the Year

For the last couple of years, I have been sharing my word of the year for the upcoming year.  It isn’t usually a word I think up.  It usually just comes to me when I set the intention for it to come to me.  This year, I set the intention and by the next day, I had the word.

For 2020, I chose a phrase and not a word.  The phrase was “Just See It!”  This was a way to remind myself that sometimes, I am not seeing the world around me in a way that presents truth and accuracy.  It turned out to be an excellent choice for this year.  There are lots of things to see—health issues, racism, what is really going on in the world.  I’m sure you could add to the list.

To read more on the background on choosing a word of the year, and more about my Word of the Year for 2020, check out last year’s blog.

By the way, I do not discard previous year’s Words of the Year.  I still focus on them.  I most certainly will focus on “Just See It” on an ongoing basis. But, as usual, I will change my lock screen on my iPhone to include some photo art that includes my Word of the Year for 2021.

My Word of the Year for 2021 is…..

My word of the year is an off shoot of the gratitude movement that began a few years ago.  I think Gratitude stops short.  My Word of the Year for 20201 is…

Drum roll please….


This means that I want to emphasize consciously creating more value than I currently do, for myself, my clients and the world in general.  It also includes seeing things as valuable when I might be grumbling about them.

Just think about all the things that could change by just thinking about creating value. For example, since the start of CoVid, grocery stores and other places with shopping carts have been keeping them clean.  I actually think that is a good thing, and something that should continue.  Sometimes the carts are absolutely disgusting. I know that sharing germs is how we build our immune system and I am not afraid of germs.  But really…there have been times in the past that I have been seriously grossed out by a grocery cart. So not only is there immediate value, seeing this task as valuable is part of the mental reframing that takes place.

What’s Next for You?

I hope you find a Word of the Year for 2021 that can impact your life as well.  Feel free to share it on my Facebook Post.  Once you discover your word, be sure to write it down, make a meme, share it with others, or you are sure to forget it.

You could even think about making a New Year’s Day activity for your family where everyone chooses their own word of the year.  And then, bring on 2021!


Meet Kathryn Berg the Classical Homeopath at Lotus Homeopathy, Inc.


Some of you know me, others of you may have heard of me. And for most, you probably have no clue about me or my business. So I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself, my family, my business, why I am a homeopath and how I became a homeopath—not necessarily in that order.

Like many people, I found out about homeopathy accidentally. I fell down while walking my Akita pup on an icy sidewalk on a typical Minnesota winter day. I was scheduled to go to a friend’s house later that day, so when I did, I asked her for some ice. You need some Arnica, she told me. Arnica? What’s that? She explained that Arnica is a homeopathic remedy for trauma.

At the time, the only place to get homeopathic remedies was a book and herb store in South Minneapolis. So I went there to get some. When I got there, I decided I should read some books so I actually knew what I was doing. I left with the Arnica 30c and three books. By the time I got done reading them, I knew I wanted to be a homeopath.

It was only several years later that I realized that I was attracted to homeopathy as a profession because I am a problem solver. It is what drives me. There is nothing like a well chosen homeopathic remedy to solve problems.

At the time I decided to become a homeopath, there wasn’t even a school here in in Minnesota. But eventually, my homeopath and his business partner started the Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy. I was a graduate of the third class. At the time I went there, it was a part time program taking three and a half years! Since then I have studied with numerous other well known and respected homeopaths in continuing education studies.

While I do work with all sorts of folks with a variety of conditions, I really have studied how to treat people suffering from PTSD, health issues related to aging women, and children’s health issues of all sorts, including autism. I have also been successful in removing blockages to healing due to suppression of symptoms by western medicine. I chose those specialties because people really suffer who have those forms of dis-ease, and Western Medicine doesn’t seem to have much of a solution for them.

After over twenty years of practice, I still get excited for clients when a remedy has helped them heal.

So that is about my business. Now, a little bit about me.

I have two adult sons in their early twenties, so I have shed the title of “Soccer mom”. My husband and I are empty nesters living in Woodbury, MN. For fun, I like to play piano, sing, sew, garden, hike, and travel. I am in a community choir. I also enjoy cooking healthy meals and, out of necessity, am an expert at cooking for special diets.
