I’ve always loved the New Year – 365 days of possibilities. I used to adore making resolutions. Creating endless lists of all the ways I could improve. Write it down! Make it happen!
Others don’t indulge in goal setting. My husband is the latter. He just strives to do his best and stays chill about it. That’s an absolutely foreign concept to me …
I’m not making any resolutions this year. From what I learned about healing trauma since our house fire in 2017, goal setting just doesn’t speak to me right now and I’m honoring that. It just feels like too much work, and almost abusive.
If you’ve already color coded your goals for this year, I say GO FOR IT!
Instead, I have picked ONE WORD to be my guiding light for 2020. It feels simpler, more achievable. My word for 2020 is …
It has a double meaning for me.
I want to be FEAR-LESS (less anxious and afraid since that seems to be internal working model).
I also want to be more FEARLESS. Braver/bolder in all that I do.
They may look like they’re saying the same thing, but they speak differently to my soul. Like flip sides of the same coin (to borrow a phrase from Copper Daniels in my books, who is kind of the epitome of fearless).
One Word feels Simpler
I’m trying to step away from being so Type-A. So all or nothing. One word feels doable, though still a challenge. What does one do to be more FEARLESS and FEAR LESS? I think as I’ve healed old wounds from childhood, that has made be bolder, more joyful and freer.
Fearless is my compass to guide me this year. I’m excited.
What’s Your One Word for 2020?
Don’t overthink it. You can change your word at any time later this year, but RIGHT NOW, if you had to sum up in one word … what you want for this year?
If it helps, start with a phrase or topic, then whittle it down to find your ONE WORD. I’m happy to help you brainstorm.
Just relax and have fun with this.
