What is Word of the Year you may be asking and why work with it?
Now if Word of The Year is new to you, let me tell you it is frigging amazing!
I happily released New Years Resolutions and have been doing this for nearly 14 years. Great Jenny, what the heck is it? Let me share my experience.
Can one word make a difference? Heck Yes! Is it different from New Year’s Resolutions – oh heck yes!
Resolutions are normally, “I will quit this, I will start that, I need to stop being sarcastic, etc. etc.” All coming from a place of lack, fear, feeling that you need to be better as obviously you aren’t enough at this moment in time. I don’t agree with that. You are whole, complete and there are some areas you may need to grow, but grow them from a place of strength, spirit and grow your whole life. That’s where Word of The Year comes in!
Word of the Year is finding the word that really resonates through every aspect of your being and letting it become your touchstone for the year as you move through work, life, family, exploring and growing. I first learned this process from Christine Kane, and if you would like to download her workbook and find out more about it, you can right here.
Last year, my word was “Possibilities”. We are so often taught that there aren’t possibilities (which feels constricting) or that there is possibility A or possibility B – bullshit! As Pam Grout shares in her books – to live and work with the Divine/Universe there are infinite possibilities!!! I am so thankful that was my word for last year, as she certainly opened a lot of doors and helped me through some very challenging times.
This year my word is “Expansive” – in other words as I approach situations, places, people, events etc. I get to ask myself -”Does this make me feel Expansive?” And I will be honest, if it’s not a Hell Yes, it’s a No!
So what’s Your Word of The Year? What calls to you and invites you to be bigger, clearer and bolder?
