A couple of years ago, I decided to have No Regrets and stating those two words aloud helped galvanize me into action. No surprise really, with the many studies that say if you get a visual of (a picture or write down) your goal you have a better chance of success.
My No Regrets year I made sure to do things I wanted, go places I wanted, spend time with people who are important to me. I had a blast. Last year my word was Learn. I took classes online and went to conferences I’d never been to before. My goal was to make my craft better.
This year time slipped away as I debated what word I want to try to make a part of my everyday life. So I finally decided on… Grow!
I need to take all I learned last year and apply the lessons. Growth of any kind means changes. Changes can be scary. I’ll have lots of changes coming my way this year. My teenager is graduating from high school. We ‘re talking about downsizing and moving. Instead of backing away and being afraid, I’ve decided to embrace change and grow.
How about you? What do envision? Do you have a word or two that describes the year ahead?
