How to leap into 2019 with intention!
Are you familiar with the concept of picking your “Word of the Year”? From what I can tell, it’s gaining in popularity – and for good reason. Personally, I stumbled upon this as a variation of a New Year’s resolution many years ago and have been keeping up with it for most years since.
So, here is what you do; it’s really simple – think about what you want more of (or less of) in the new year. What are your important focus areas and in what aspects are you determined to grow? Pick a meaningful word that represents your outcome or action and this will guide you in all the goals you set for yourself for the next year. The word will keep you focused as situations cross your path. You can use it for motivation and as your compass for life decisions, small or big.
How do I find my word?
Some words that I have picked in past years have been Happy, Gratitude, Balance and Breathe. For 2019, I haven’t quite decided what my word will be, but I am leaning strongly towards Grow, Bloom, Elevate, Flourish… in other words, something that signifies growth in some way. So, as I think you can see, one single word can become quite mighty, don’t you agree?
To help you along the way, I’ve put together a document with tons of words as ideas to get you started. You can print it and place it where you can easily read it (fridge, vision board, your desk, etc.) and see which word eventually jumps out at you. Once it does – that’s your Word of the Year for 2019.
New year, new you.
If you think it would be helpful to you, you can always keep your Word of the Year in sight, by wearing a beautifully hand stamped necklace or bracelet. That way, you’ll always be reminded of your power word when you need it.
Sooo, I hope this has inspired you! Do you know what your word for next year will be?
