I have picked my words for this year. Normally, I only pick one, but this year I could settled for only one. After narrowing it down, and thinking a lot about it, I ended up with three. I feel so much better having done this.
My words for this year encompass how I want to feel in my business and my over all life. I’ve written, more in detail, in my Desire Map Planner (which I absolutely love!). I am a big fan of Danielle LaPorte and what she teaches about living life by how you want to feel. I love that! A big improvement over the whole new year’s resolution stuff.
More about why I chose my words and what they mean to me.
Expansive: To make big space for myself in my art biz allowing growth and what ever comes my way this year. I can feel my reach extending further each year, and it really scares me. I hope to allow space for it this year, breathing into it with open arms –instead of resisting and trying to shrink and hide.
Lightness: I carry a lot of useless weight on my shoulders worrying about everything and stressing about every little detail. I started to ask for help last season, which is really hard for me to do. I am hoping to allow myself to ask for help when I need it and to let some things go that are not serving my creative powers. More ease, less force. Let this lightness bring me more light.
Vibrant: I want to feel more energetic and alive. A greater presence for me and my family. To feel this way, I need to take better care of myself. Eat and do things that make my feel more vibrant. Get rest when I need it. Make yoga and walking the dog a priority. Do more hiking and movie nights with my family and more coffee and dinner dates with my honey.
Have you picked your words for the year? I’d love to hear them!
