Though I know there are no magic solutions to life’s challenges, I want to share my secret weapon that I’ve been using for the last fifteen years that doesn’t cost a dime: choosing a word of the year. Think of it like a theme song to motivate you as you move from here to what’s next. Your word of the year is there to serve and support you as we enter a new decade.
Yes, my dear. Not only are we on the edges of a new year, but entering a new decade. And for many folks that means making New Year’s Resolutions. I have to admit that while I’m a fan of goals and often create goals that come to fruition, I don’t particularly love resolutions. I also understand that resolutions don’t work for a lot of folks because they hold a different connotation in our thinking processes.
Sure, we may begin the year – the new decade – with the best of intentions. But lose momentum because we never got clear on their why. Or flounder because we just don’t have a clear enough focus.
That’s where the word of the year comes in. Choosing a single word (or short phrase) gives a guiding beacon of light for your journey.
If you’ve been reading my blog for long, you probably know how I feel about following a thread of desire. And doing so can be a holy calling. To take the light that burns in your soul and allow it to grow and burn brighter. You, my darling, deserve to see those desires and dreams become a part of your reality. And that’s why I love this time of year. Because even without making resolutions, you can take the energy that a new year brings and dive into the depths of your desires.
See, my dear, my past words of the year have been there to serve as both witness, guide, and glimmer of hope when times have been tough. Because we all need a little help and guidance. I guess what I love about the word of the year process is that it allows me to discover deeper desires, but propels me forward.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to know that this word you choose will propel you forward as you plant the seeds of your desires? That by choosing a word of the year, you’ll have a beacon of light to look towards when that momentum fades. Or when times get tough and you’re needing just a smidgen of hope to help you persevere. And then, my darling, your word of the year will stand beside you as you move towards harvesting the bounty of your labors.
In my experience – as a woman and as a coach – choosing a word of the year is the magical ingredient to creating an amazing year.
