This is a new one for me, I have seen many friends sharing their word(s) of the year and thought I would try it. It took me this long to tailor my list down to three words to focus on for the year. It was not as easy as I imagined.
My personal goals this year are to focus on doing more of what I feel is true to my heart and mind. To tie into that theme, the words that ring true to me are:
Simplify- in all aspects of my life. Try to do more of what matters and discard the rest. Look at and listen to myself and be sure what I take on serves a greater purpose.
Declutter/ Denoise- not only my closets and drawers, but my mind and body. Get rid of the things taking up space that are not serving a purpose. If I am not sure of the purpose, make a “to be re looked at pile”
Journey- this journey of life is moving quickly, I want to look at it more and be present in it more. I want my family and loved ones to see and feel me present.
I am not yet sure of how I will accomplish living my words, but I am going to try and the challenge alone is raising my awareness as well as my focus.
I would love to know if you decide to try a few words to focus on and what your words are!
A few tips to help-
Close your eyes- what words come to mind? Write them down
Ask a close friend what word comes to mind when they think of you. Write it down
Look at the list and see which, if any, “feel” right and when you have your word(s) start trying to make them your 2017 focus!
