Rather than make resolutions for the past few years I have chosen a guiding word that I try to focus my mind and energy on each year. My guiding word for this year has been purposefully. It was the word I chose last December to be the guiding force for my decisions and life this year. I really liked having the word to reflect on several times during the year to keep checking myself to see if I was living my life the way I wanted to, purposefully.
As this year is coming to an end and I am looking towards the New Year I am thinking of what my word will be. I have several ideas.
Maybe motivated. I am searching for a word to propel me forward this year. I felt last year’s word was perfect to slow down and think about what I was doing and the state of the world as it felt like it was changing. This year I want a word that moves me. Inspires me.
I just looked up synonyms for motivated. Ambitious. Aspiring. Zealous. Enthusiastic. Those are all great possibilities.
Do you choose a word for your year? Have you chosen a new one yet?
