I have been thinking that New Year’s Resolutions are not always successful or easy to keep. I wanted some way to focus my efforts for change this year but in a different way than a static list. ANGELCITYGAL mentioned that Oriah Mountain Dreamer (http://www.oriahsinvitation.b
logspot.com/) on her Facebook page recommended this week that her readers pick one word as a kind of theme or grounding point for the New Year. She also advised that it not be one of the "big" words like love, peace, or hope. She suggested we pick a "little" word, one that is perhaps more personal or more concrete. In that word, she says, contained all the big words, anyway.
I have read several other people suggesting this and some suggested words were
Growth, trust, move , focus , healthy , balance , diligent , fearless , grateful , restore , simplify, intentional, courage , renew , confidence , persevere , present , change , release. In thinking about what I want to do the word that appealed to me is DESTINATION.
This is a time in my life when I am looking at where I am and where I am going, what are the results I want. It just seems like the right word.
What's your word for the year?
