I’m not really one for New Year’s resolutions, I’m too busy writing new goals every week or month during the year, I save new year’s for reflection. It’s my moment to look back at the prior year with gratitude. My favorite tradition is to write New Year’s cards to those who had an impact on my life. There are always so many, I’m sure I leave someone out. I have so much to be thankful for, the new year is a good time to share that.
So, no New Year’s Resolutions for me, instead I am following a number of writers who suggest identifying three words that carry you through your year. Three words that help me to focus, to stay on track, to get things done. It took a week, but finally the three words just ran in to my head and they simply won’t leave.
Really, I’ve tried, but those same three words keep assaulting me, every where I go, I see an application. In the morning when I wake, at least one of the words jumps up to say “look at me!” I’m excited for the year ahead, just having identified my words will help me to stay on track.
My three words are:
Abundance • Energy • Intention
My life has so much good in it, I am incredibly blessed. It is filled with wonderous abundance in so many ways.
Energy comes in so many forms, I find that if I remind myself how much energy I have to tackle all my tasks, it helps me to stay positive and upbeat through even the most droll tasks.
I refuse to just let life pass me by, every day, I live with Intention. I face the world with intention, each day I know exactly what I want to accomplish, some days it doesn’t all get done, but there is always a goal.
What are your three words?
