Like so many of us, this is the time of year when you get to decide what you want to stop or do more of in the upcoming year. It is the question on most people’s minds “Have you made your New Year’s resolutions?”

“Why, you may reply, you never seem to keep them, you may have given up!

Trying Something New

This year, I am going to try something new. I was reading a friend’s post earlier and she used one word to guide her. Curious, I did a quick review of this year to see if I could find what my one word may have been. It was a resounding “Yes” yes to my life that I declared last November 13. This was my mantra that carried over for this year. What will it be for this year? I got quiet, closed my eyes and started to breathe and the word came to me.

Finding Balance

The word was “Balance” perfect, I thought. This year proved to be off the charts in awesomeness and I said “Yes” to most of what came to me that I wouldn’t normally. Being an introvert, I find putting myself out there to be rather daunting, however, I had said yes to becoming a grief coach and yes to authoring a book. I was sure that these two passions of mine would require me to be a little bit more extroverted. This is what saying “Yes” actually helped me to do. I found when I said “Yes” then all my fears rose to let me know why I shouldn’t be doing it. How did I silence the fears – well that is a Blog for another day!

Now as I sit down to plan, I will use that word as my guiding light, my North Star so to speak.  Just looking at what is already planned for my first quarter, is enough to make me want to hibernate. Over the next few days, I will let you know how it works. In the meantime what word could you use to guide you?

Oh, my friend’s word last year was “Visibility” – which was perfect for her as she was focusing on launching her business.

What word will you choose?
