Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.
I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…
Resolutions / Words of the Year: Do you do them?
I have fluctuated between doing resolutions and not doing them over the years. Over the past few years, I’ve stopped because rather than being a start of the year goal setter, I’m more of a continuous goal setter. As you may have noticed with my FitReaders posts, I’m constantly working on myself – that’s my fitness goals, but every month I take stock of my progress on several goals and adjust. So in the sense that January 1 is the start of a new month, yes, I set goals for the year January 1. But in reality, it’s just part of an ongoing process.
This year, I decided I really do want to do a word of the year. I like the idea of having a mantra to guide me throughout the year as I focus on those continuous goals.
That’s my word of the year because it embraces the next step for me. I’ve done a lot of work over the years and I’m proud of how far I’ve come. But this past year I’ve done a lot goal setting without fully committing and making my goals a reality. It’s time to making everything I want to feel and experience a reality… via my thoughts, actions, beliefs, and emotions… it’s time to manifest. I need to believe in my goals and live them in every choice I make, I thought I think, every thing I feel. I’m really excited about it and I even got myself a bracelet to wear everyday with the word on it. If I remember, when it comes, I’ll update this post with a picture.
Edit to add picture! I forgot before publishing but same day isn’t so bad, right?
