Happy New Year!! 2017 is here and a new year for some people means new beginnings, new habits to be formed or maybe even New Year resolutions. As posted last week in a post you can find here, I stopped doing New Year's resolutions and was introduced to choosing a word for the year for the first time in 2016. It worked better for me than resolutions, so this year I'm choosing a new word.
Last year I went over a few words because I decided FOCUS was the right word for 2016 but I didn't find it difficult to choose my word. This year was the same. It didn't take me long before I was sure I had found the right word. Not everyone finds their word that fast and some have a struggle finding their word which is when the Facebook group, my two friends set up is a great place to throw ideas around and get help to narrow it down.
This year I wanted a word that would help me reach new goals in all areas of life, be confident in my choices and words, try out new things - I thought of "possible", "fearless" and "courage" but I didn't feel they were quite the right word. Then one day the word BELIEVE popped up and I was like; "That's it! The perfect match!"
Believe that I can do this!
Believe that I can kick CFS' ass!
Believe that I deserve success!
Believe that I am enough!
Believe that it's okay to speak up!
Believe that it's okay not knowing it all!
Believe that I'm not like others!
Believe that I can run again!
Believe that I don't need to be perfect!
Believe that everything will be okay!
I think you get the point now! The word is written in my workbooks and I got a bracelet to be my constant reminder when things get tough.
I'm already embracing my word as I have started running already and I signed up for 3 races in 2017! One of which is today! I got a lot of projects and ideas which I'd love to see through this year, so I'm very excited to see what the year will bring. I believe it will be an amazing year!
Are you doing New Year resolutions? Choosing a word like me? Changing habits or something else. I'd love to hear from you in the comments.
Here's to an awesome 2017!
