My three words

Three words to set your year up for success. Three words that when repeated day in and day out for 365 will help you to lead the life you choose. It sounds easy, but how do you live with just those three words for an entire year?

In 2016, I choose Abundance.Energy.Intention – those were good for me, they helped me to recognize the Abundance that my life is filled with, the Energy I need to muster to complete my tasks and the choice I make daily to live with Intention – life is too short to let it pass me by.

But 2017 feels different, life is good, it is fulfilling, it is time to shift the focus. So my three words have to reflect that. Today I choose the following:

I need the alliteration to help me remember.

When I first started thinking of my words – Community jumped right up. My Community is not geographical,travel prevents that. My interests are so varied, there are many separate communities that would never fit together, but each small section is a Community and I want to be a more active member. I appreciate my Communities because of what they bring to the table, this is to remind me to participate. It is up to me to join and speak up, not just be a wallflower in the corner.

Chance makes sense to me, there are so many presented daily: chances, opportunities, adventures. I need reminded to take the chance, to be a leader in trying new things, to say yes to what is presented. Take the Chance, it will be worth it.

Fear is a big part of my life, it has taken me a long time to admit it and I try to be fearless, but internally I know better, and those closest to me know it too. To choose Fear as one of my words seems negative, but Conquer is a positive thing. So it can positively remind me to Conquer my fears without reiterating daily that I have them.

So those are my three words- what are yours? Share with me, let’s tackle 2017 together.

My three words

LiveI’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?
