Today is January 1st, and people are thinking, thinking, thinking of what their resolutions for the New Year will be.
Other people feel that resolutions are set ups for failure, that they are often such lofty goals that they seem overwhelming and people give up.
That is why some people choose a word of the year instead. Just ONE word to apply to all of their lives in the upcoming year.
Many of my friends have been doing Word of the Year, but I have never chosen a word. Until this year.
This year my word of the year is:
I have had struggles in my life, not just in the past year (which was especially harsh) but for many years.
My life, my body, my soul, all need a good cleansing.
This upcoming year for me is going to be about casting out the old, unwanted, unneeded in order to make room for new, fresh, better things.
For the next year I will be trying to live my life by my word.
- Decluttering my home of the stuff I don’t want/need/love
- Letting go of negative emotions, grudges, sorrows of the past.
- Treating my body better, cleansing it of the fat that is making it sick.
I’m sure there are mor ways I can live my life in a cleansing way.
I will still be making resolutions, and I’m sure they will fit hand in hand with my word of the year in one way or another.
On top of my ONE word of the year, I would also like to learn some new words this year, and considering buying a Word a Day calendar. Or maybe just a word a day e-mail.
Do you do resolutions or a word of the year? What are/is your main goal/goals for 2017? Let me know in the comments!
