Happy New Year!!! Let’s get this awesome year started, by picking a word for 2016.
I love the idea of choosing a word to focus upon for the year. 2015 was the first year that I chose a word instead of making full blown resolutions, and I feel like it really served me well.
If you’re just choosing a word, you can easily remind yourself of it over and over again… and infuse it into every aspect of your life. Energy is something I focus on regularly, so it was second nature to focus on it as my goal for 2015.
This year, I’m stepping a little outside of my comfort zone. I’m choosing a word that can be applied to so many different scenarios. And, it’s a word I want to focus on for the year…
Yes, I agree. The word choice is a little bit different than what you’ll read on most blogs. Most people choose words like Focus or Mobilize, but I’m focusing upon what I need most right now involving EMBRACE.
For 2016, I want to…
EMBRACE change. You may not realize this, but there are times where I really struggle with accepting change. It tends to stress me out, until I feel normal again and until I get into my groove. At the end of 2015, I embarked upon some significant change. Change that I wanted, change that I needed… and as the new year gets into full swing, I want to embrace this change and embrace all that comes with it.
EMBRACE my curves. I’ve come so far on this weight loss journey and most days, I love what I look like regardless of the extra 10-15 pounds I’m carrying. In the end, those numbers don’t matter and it’s time I start truly EMBRACING that. I need to appreciate how far I’ve come and that I’m so much more than the number on the scale. For a goal-seeking Capricorn and someone that’s spent 30+ years focusing on that very number, this is often easier said than done.
EMBRACE silence. Meditation. I need it in my life. This is the year to make it happen.
EMBRACE love. Yes, my dears… I’d like to find love this year. While most successful 30-something/almost 40-something ladies tend to just go with the flow living their fabulous life acting like there’s nothing missing, I’m putting it out there that I’d really like to find someone to share the next 40 years with. Yep, someone that would love me for all that I am and all that I’m not. I also know that this is an area I haven’t focused upon much in years past… so, with a little focus, attention, and prime positioning on the vision board, I’ll keep you posted on how this goes.
EMBRACE 40. It’s coming, and I’m not okay with it yet. I plan to use 39 to get ready for it. (PS… Fun 40s stories welcomed!)
So, there you have it… embrace is the word for 2016, y’all! What are you focusing upon for the new year?
