Wow! Can you believe we’re already at the end of the first quarter of the year?!
For me, the end of the quarter is always a good time to look back and see how far I’ve come for the year. It’s also a good time to review what it is I want to accomplish for the remainder of the year.
A few years ago, I learned about the concept of choosing a guiding word for the year. Instead of a list of resolutions, you can choose one word that guides your intention. You then focus on your one word for the whole year moving towards creating your future vs. moving away from your past.
My one word for 2018 is THRIVE. The last few years, I feel like I’ve been surviving more than thriving. So this year it’s perfect for me as I want to thrive in every area of my life.
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” -Maya Angelou
As I reflect back on the year so far, I’ve found it is easier to make better choices when I keep my word in mind. For example, I’ve a couple of guilty pleasure TV shows that I like to watch. Now that I’m located in the Phoenix area, they come on too late for me to get the amount of sleep that helps me to thrive. Now, I record the shows so I can watch them at a more convenient time. I also shut down my electronics by 8 or 9 pm at the latest. I’ve noticed a difference in the quality of my sleep and I get to spend more time reading, which I love to do.
Do you have a guiding word? If not, it’s not too late. Just choose one word that helps guide your intentions for the year. Don’t force it, just sit quietly for a bit of time and see what pops into your mind.
I’d love to hear from you. What’s your word?
One word that guides your intention is sexy.
