I love the idea of a fresh start. Birthdays and autumn always seem like a time for new beginnings…but the New Year, well that feels like the ultimate fresh start to me.
Do you make New Year’s resolutions?
I used to make them every year. I’d have these lofty goals that quickly became guilty feelings, because I wasn’t carrying them out. They’d drop off my radar One. By. One. Until I wasn’t even trying to do them.
I can’t be alone in those feelings. The health clubs are jammed in January, then gradually thin out as people fall off the wagon. Been there…done that…have the recurring Visa bill to prove it.
This year I’m doing something different. I’m choosing a WORD OF THE YEAR.
I was first introduced to this concept by one of my favorite bloggers, BARBARA, who writes The Empty Nest Mom. I loved the idea immediately.
Your word allows you to live it with intention. It inspires you to learn throughout the year. It’s not a “should” like resolutions, it’s something that “is”. It’s incorporated into your thoughts and actions.
When you choose a word that authentically speaks to you, it has the ability to transform your thinking and actions.
My word for 2015 is brave.
I guess I better put a capital letter on that word,
Maybe CAPITALIZE it and bold it,
I want to stretch myself…fly higher…challenge my beliefs…push against my comfort zone…put more of myself out there…and the word brave, says it all for me.
Are you making resolutions this year?
What would your word be?
