5 Words to Shape My Year

Well it is 1-1-11 and we have begun our New Year. I can say that the Guthrie New Years celebration was fun and most of us managed to doze off right before midnight. I woke at 12:03 kissed my family and went back to sleep. We are quite the festive group!

Now I have tried the resolution route in the past and have found, like public declarations of plans, I am just setting myself up for failure. So, this year I am taking a different approach. I have picked five words that I am going to use as guideline to define my year. Without further ado...

--Gratitude. Remembering what brought me here, what keeps me here and what propels me forward.

--Determination. Absolute laser sharp focus to keep me on track for all my plans big and small.

--Serenity. Acceptance at the end of the day that I have done all I can do to be the person I want to be.

--Reflection. Keeping tabs on my "image", my stamp on the world. Knowing that I a keeping up with how I perceive who I am.

--Action. I am a very creative person and it has always been my desire to have my creativity be my full time job and support my family. Bigger and better things also come from these actions.

These five words are simple in context, yet large in meaning. Keeping them close to me will help me round my year. This is my plan. What is yours? Are you a resolutions type of person, or do you just skip the process entirely? I would love to know!

'Til we meet again!

  1. I have usually made a resolution every year but, like you, have not exactly been successful. I've not yet made one this year. I like your idea of living by some strategic words. Best to you and your family in the new year!
