Describe Your Year in One Word


Over the year, most of us have been through a range of emotions and feelings, but it does feel as if we’re coming out the other side slowly. During our week of reflection, we asked a few colleagues who have been with ACT throughout the pandemic for one word which describes their year and they said:

  • Manic
  • Rollercoaster
  • Innovative
  • Emotional
  • Mercurial
  • Surreal
  • Apprehensive
  • Limbo
  • Disappointing
  • Coalescing
  • Educational
  • Re-evaluate
  • Challenging
  • Testing
  • Memorable
  • Herculean
  • Reflective
  • Survivable
  • Positive
  • Galvanizing
  • “You’re on mute” (yes we know it’s more than one word, but it made us laugh!)

 And one colleague quoted the famous opening lines of A Tale of Two Cities “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…”

We think they all sum it up quite nicely! Chatting to others, it seems we’ve all learned more about each other and ourselves, and we think this puts us all in such a strong place for the next year to come.
