The idea is to choose a Word and let that word guide you for the year and hopefully after. Rather than a concrete resolution that you may or may not do or that ends once you complete your goal.
In the past I’ve chosen Disconnect, Laugh and Simplify. I write my word on a post it note and stick it next to my computer as a gentle reminder. All of these words have stayed with me and changed how I think and react to things even after the year ends.
So….I think we can all agree that 2016 sucked. There was SO much loss. I’m not sure things are going to get better (way to be optimistic about the future Karen! lol) so my Word for 2017 is going to be…..
In 2017, I want to remember to find, and seek out, JOY. Remember that there is goodness, kindness and love in the world and not be drowned out by the negativity.
That does not mean ignoring reality or living in a bubble but taking care of yourself and appreciating the things that make you happy in life, however small, is important!
And I’ll keep Disconnect, Laugh and Simplify in my thoughts because I’m pretty sure they all be needed to find Joy. And of course lots and lots of kitten/puppy pictures and videos!
What are your resolutions/words for 2017?
