Pick a Word of the Year
Instead of having a long list of hopes, wishes and goals for the upcoming year, consider picking just one word. Focus all of the energy you might otherwise invest in New Year's resolutions into making this word your standard for 2010.
Some examples include:
Yes – Say yes to everything, including what scares you and what you wouldn't normally do
Honesty - Tell the truth, both to yourself and to others
Health – Make taking care of your body all that matters this year
Allow – Let go of resistance, allowing everything to unfold perfectly
Alternatively, choose a phrase through which you'll filter your actions, decisions, and so on.
- Put family first.
- Be kind instead of right.
- Have more fun.
- Be spontaneous.
- Listen to your intuition always.
Before you know it, you'll find this word or phrase affecting every area of your life.
"Chiller". As an aspiring Motivational Speaker, I'm authoring a companion book based on this utopian / blissful term. This one word has been the driving force behind a recession-proof lifestyle I created over 10 years ago. It's a beautiful thing. Great article, by the way! Inner Peace, Eternal Love, and Abundant Blessings I bid you. Lyfa Lee Zhure
this is perfect!!!! instead of a list of "no more" or "do this"..
I pick ALLOW... i am working on surrendering to what is and allowing it to unfold as it is meant to.
