I think I’m failing at this whole “pick a word/phrase/intention” for 2017 thing. I know, it’s four weeks into the year and I still haven’t picked one.
What in the world am I talking about? You KNOW what I’m talking about…. On that magical first day of the year, everyone picks a “word of the year”, an intention, a path that pushes you forward – that motivates you to be the person you want to be – the person you deserve to be….
And they post it on Facebook or Instagram or whatever social media they prefer, and they let EVERYBODY know – this is it. This is MY year. This is the year I will be grateful. Passionate. Loving.
Some people choose words like ‘centred’ or ‘mindful, while others create a phrase ‘be the change’ or ‘thrive creatively’ – and then others go all Danielle LaPorte with five CDFs (core desire feelings) and make those their intention for living.
Me? I can’t figure out that one word that fully embodies the feeling of what I want to be this year.
Bear with me here.
I want to be pulled together. On top of all things. Be prepared and organized. Not have little things slip away. Not forget things because I didn’t write them down. Not be scattered. Not be stretched thin. Organized. Working on one thing to completion. Multitasking in a smart way if necessary. I want to use my time efficiently. I want to work wisely and have time for myself. I want to accomplish my goals without turning into a 24/7 hustler.
I want to wake up early. Break a sweat every day. I want to work hard. Check off all the things on my list. I want to have time to laugh and have fun – guilt-free. I want to know that I’m doing the best that I can.
I just want to get shit done.
So what then?
Is “get shit done” my motto for 2017?
Get Shit Done.
What’s YOUR word for 2017?
