Every year I select 3 words that I want to help shape the up coming year. In the past I would choose words that I randomly read in my Facebook feed thinking ‘oh hey! That sounds good, I’m going to use that!’ But in reflecting on how 2019 turned out I realized that I wanted, I NEEDED my words to be of MY OWN selection. Words that gave a deeper meaning to what I wanted and pictured for my life. So down the internet rabbit hole I went. I started searching topics like WHY do people select words for their year, Why is a word of the year important, and more specifically HOW to select your own personal word of the year.
So armed with all this research I finally picked my words…
(insert drum roll here)
I had to admit to myself that I get distracted every easily, especially when I feel like my life and business aren’t headed in the direction I THINK they should be headed based on the amount of work I have put into these areas. So 2020 will be a year where I FOCUS on not only my actions but what is causing me to drift and then get back to the task at hand.
I am a Christian and I believe that God has a plan for me and my life, but I also know that in order for that plan to come to life I need to do the work required in order to succeed. So this year I am going to FOCUS on being more FAITHFUL in the plan that was designed for my life. Having Faith means believing in the things we can’t see at THIS moment.
I will commit myself to doing and being the best that only I can be. I will commit to showing up in my business which will help me grow and expand. I will commit to creating a better and more connected family environment. And finally, I will commit to more self accountability. I am the only person that can bring about any change I seek so taking time to reassess those areas that I fall short in and seeing how I can make changes will be an HARD but something that I am COMMITTED to.
YES! As I reread this list it does make me a LOT uncomfortable, but that just confirms that I selected words and goals that will push me to be the best Wanda I know I can be.
As I write this I’m in the studio looking out the window and watching snow fall. It;s not lost on me that rain and snow are God’s way of washing away the sh*t from yesterday and I believe that this is a good sign for the New Year.
Wishing you the best and brightest 2020 and I pray that all of your hearts desires are met this year.
