Well friends, everything finally came together for me with my word for this year. With my immediate focus on my business’ growth and profitability; it was a very pleasant happenstance that my word for 2016 was all encompassing for my personal life and development as well.
Engage in my own life, in my own business. Engage in the present with my family. Put the phone down and have some real face to face time with my people. Listen to real voices versus reading texts. Learn fluency by engaging with French speaking people, rather than just relying on the digital translator. Record the memories with my senses versus always pointing a gadget at an event. It’s especially hard with the trade I’m into, but damn if I’m not going to at least try, correct?
The four words I found that support ENGAGE for me are:
Attract = Retain | Promise = Secure.
And it can’t be more fitting for my own desire map.
I’m not really your regular ‘cup-is-half-full’ kind of broad, but this year brings me such optimism that I haven’t felt in a while. I truly feel like I can conquer anything I put my mind and hard work into this time around. And I’m also working on to get more healthy so I can have the energy to do all the heavy lifting that needs to be done to attain my vision of success. You could very well say that it may just be a New Year’s eve hangover, but I feel it in my gut. I can do this. I will do this.
This is the year I will pull up my big girl pants, dig deep for my chutzpah and work it in with a bit more elbow grease. These are not new year’s resolutions, but they are the intentions I’m putting my heart and soul into. I’m turning 44 this year, and what the fuck I am doing with all this dilly dallying? Because, no one’s really going to do it, if I don’t do it for myself. So stay tuned. Big things are coming from me, just wait and see.
I wish you all a Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year, friends! Manifest that shit for 2016!
