Stop! Right now! Don't do it! I'm serious, soul sisters.
I mean, I always did it, then three days into January, I'm calling myself unmotivated, unfocused, a failure! I read all the how to blogs, the tips and tricks, but nothing worked. I'm talking about New Years Resolutions.
Here are a few interesting facts about New Years Resolutions (incase your a challenger like me, if not just skip this part!)
A Different Approach: One Word
So, I want to live an intentional life, I aspire to be my best self. I do need focus. But the rebel in me hated the rigidity of a resolution. That is why about 5 years ago I changed my focus from resolution to Word of the Year. One simple word to guide me through the year, set my intentions and flow. A touchstone, gentle reminder to keep me on course.
2021 WOY: GROW
This year I chose Grow as my word. And December is the time when I sit and journal, reflecting on my WOY. Simply listing things. How did I Grow? I took a hand lettering class, went to style school, formed an LLC for my Yoga Business and went to the dentist ( I have severe anxiety)! and that's just the start of my list. I'm starting to consider my 2022 Word. It often takes me days, even weeks, to sift through how I want to feel mindfully and land on a word.
