Three weeks into 2018 already…
How are you doing with your New Year resolutions?
Have you abandoned them yet?
No? Great! Keep going!
Yes? That’s ok.... but...
Maybe it’s time to...
Do something differently?
Have you ever tried choosing a theme or an inspiring word for the year?
I did that for the first time in 2017 and I must say that when I felt a bit lost about which way to go or what to do next, remembering the theme I had chosen always calmed me down and put me back on track. And, the theme itself had more sides and meanings than I originally thought...
Would you like to try?
Here’s how (in 2 easy steps):
1) Choose your word/theme
Stop and think, take notes, notice what inspires you... and then close your eyes and ask yourself:
What do I want more of in my life?
How do I want the year to go? How do I want to feel?
At the end of the year, what do I want to have done?
What is one thing that I want to change, improve, learn, master...?
What word/theme would help get me there?
As a rule, I suggest that you choose something that inspires or makes you laugh.
Anything that will get you out of a negative state of mind would be perfect.
Calm. Patience. Love. Fun. Creativity. Action. Exploration.
Smile. Laugh. Trust. Believe. Live.
Take a step! Do the work! Keep going! Focus ...
Make that change! Try! You’ve got this! Why not? Let it go.
Better done than perfect! Dance like nobody’s watching! Be in the moment.
Don’t be so serious. Move your butt Coconut!
Be creative. find one that really resonates with you!
2) Write it down somewhere.
Write it in big, beautiful, colorful letters, or not
Use it as a wallpaper on your smart phone, or not.
It does not matter... what matters is that you make sure to
see it every day or that it is in your mind, like a mantra, ready to get you back on track when needed.
Try and see how it goes... and let’s talk at the end of the year!
