If you would have told me One Word would change my trajectory, I would have thought you were naive at best.
And now, New Year Resolutions are a thing of my past.
Let’s face it. New Year Resolutions are all about changing what you regret. It’s about focusing on where you haven’t measured up. I don’t have the time to spend on the regret of what I haven’t done or where I’ve fallen short.
Instead, I give power to words that push me where I want to be!
Over the last three years, I have embraced a word of the year: Kindness, Awaken, and Rise.
These words had intuitive significance at the beginning of each year, but nothing more. Then when December 31st arrived, I found each word had changed my world in a beautiful and profound way.
With each word there was no regret, there was no condemnation, there was only focus, opportunity, and growth.
In 2017, my word is… TRANSFORM.
I don’t know where this focus will take me. But what I do know, I am a very different person now than I was three years ago. One word a year has been a big part of that journey.
