Happy new year! It’s that time again. No, not resolutions. We have enough of those to keep us occupied and sometimes frazzled and guilt-ridden. What I’m talking about is something that sets the tone for your year. One word to inspire, motivate, and sometimes even surprise you.
Here’s a list of my past words:
It’s amazing how a single word can create an entire mindset for the year. I started out with something really open and positive and then moved towards words that would challenge me and help me grow, sometimes in ways that were not always comfortable.
My husband has also enjoyed choosing a word for himself each year. Since he just graduated with two master’s degrees while working full-time, he decided his word for this year should be: reignite. As in, he wants to reignite his hobbies, exercise routine, and friendships. Sounds perfect!
As for me, I’m taking a different track this year. My word is…
To get me started, I’m going to focus on some mantras related to this word. Two of them come from one of my favorite meditation CDs, Meditation Moment.
“I open myself up to miracles both large and small.”
“Miracles happen every day.”
The third mantra is from SARK and can be used when you find you need a little help from the universe. Fill in the blank below with whatever you need. I especially like to use this one when I’m trying to find a good parking spot 😉
“________ miracle find me now.”
(i.e. Parking miracle find me now.)
You’ll be amazed at the results of inviting miracles into your life.
But don’t stop there! Come up with your own unique word for the year. Something to excite you and get you all fired up. A word that not only defines your entire year, but also each moment of each new day.
Go for it!
