I came across this blog post yesterday and it really resonated with me. http://goinswriter.com/broken-resolution/. So I set about to find my word for 2017. This seemed like something pretty important to me as I set some goals for my writing that I basically ignored last year. What did I come up with? And how will I use this in 2017?
Yea, sounds amazing, right? The key is to USE THIS word, in everything I do, everything I pursue. NOTHING can stop me, because what I want to accomplish MATTERS. It occurred to me during this exercise that I basically messed around with my writing like I did with my weight loss/fitness for so long until I FINALLY got serious about it. So, I spent some time with myself and set some firm intentions. Not resolutions, though that’s fine if that’s what makes you giddy inside. I had a heart to heart chat with myself, once again affirmed that I AM A WRITER, now I just have to act like one.
I chatted with a dear friend of mine about choosing a word, and she was all for it too. She has been through some SERIOUS stuff in 2016, so her word is UNBREAKABLE. Through everything, she has refused to sink, and together we are pushing each other to live with purpose and intention, and put our words to use in everything we do.
What is your word? I challenge you to pick one. If you need some ideas, check out http://Oneword365.com and make a list of ones that speak to you. Then choose! Come on along, this will be fun. But it isn’t just a word – this is your intention for the year. Everything you do you must do with this word in mind.
As the website says “CHOOSE JUST ONE WORD. Go where it takes you. Be who it makes you.”
