Word of the Year

The year 2016 will be my third year doing a “word of the year” instead of a typical resolution.  I did not come up with this awesome idea, I was first introduced to the concept by Christine Kane (she’s a badass and worth following on your journey).  The cool thing about having a word is that it’s more of a guide than a general resolution.

In 2014 my word was “confidence” and in 2015 it was “stability.”  These words just came to me as I was doing the exercise, which I will provide a link to at the bottom of this post.  Just to give you an idea, some of the specifics of working toward stability included physical stability, mental stability, and financial stability.  I journaled frequently (2-3 times per week) about ways I was meeting this goal.  Things like meditating, exercising, tracking spending, and saving money were all ways I was embodying my word of the year.

If you were thinking about doing a New Year’s Resolution, or two, consider instead doing a Word of the Year.  I guarantee you won’t regret it.  Just let the word come to you (you might be amazed at how easily this happens- a perfect example of tapping into your awareness) and then work toward, and with, your word for all of 2016.

Let’s make 2016 our best year yet.

Christine has a ‘Word of the Year Tool’ that you can download to figure out your word for 2016.  Download the tool here.
