How is your year going lovely?
We are midway through this wintery month and I want to know, how are you doing?
Last year, we talked a bit about choosing a word to aim for the coming year.
Now that we are a few weeks into this new decade, how does your word fit?
Some year, my seemingly fabulous word falls to the wayside as the days go by.
I start off thinking that this year will be all about beauty or sparkle or whathaveyou, but by week two, I am back to the same ol' patterns.
Not bad patterns, just not new ones.
Sometimes it isn't the right time for new.
This year though, I am having a truly delightful time.
Every day that I am out and about, I think to myself, what can I do that is delightful?
Y'all, I am having a lovely time over here - a delightful time!
Every day this month, I have made purposeful and intentional actions based on that word.
Something as simple as what to order from the coffee shop to something as serious as what charity do we support this year.
Shifting my guiding word this year has been a joyous exercise indeed!
As someone who enjoys serious and purpose and intensity, delight seemed like a foreign concept.
But by giving myself permission and direction to try out a different way of working and thinking is already transforming my days.
Sharing that word with your team also helps.
My team of people remind me to shift my focus in tough moments to find creative ways to bring delight into even the smallest details.
So lovely, how about you?
I'd love to hear how your word is working out for you this season!
Drop me an email and keep the conversation going!
Tea-loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
