Happy end of 2016!
Some people are elated about that! If you've been on facebook lately, a lot of people are DONE with 2016.
They see 2016 as a horrible monster who has destroyed their childhood idols and people they love.
Personally, I had a really good 2016-- for the most part. There were issues, of course, but over all, I had a wonderful year.
Part of the reason that I loved the year was thanks to my "One Word" of 2016. If you don't know what one word is, keep reading ;)
ONE WORD is something I've done since 2012 I think. It is where you pick ONE WORD to focus on for the year. It is like a resolution only easier.
Some of my previous one words have been: love, focus, compassion...
THIS YEAR, my One Word was "Don't WISH. Do." (yes, I realize that's 3 words ;) )
Wanna skip the reading? Watch this video where I talk about some of the same keypoints.
I'm the world's worst to go,
"I wish I had ____."
"Wow, I wish I could do _______"
"I wish _______ would happen to me."
Do you see the issue with that?
I have ZERO control over it.
It is like me saying I hope the stars line up and make my dreams come true.
You can't do that... Well you can. You can sit and wait for something to happen or you can take strides to MAKE it happen. (and by 'you', I mean me too lol)
That hit me about 3 am one night last year. I want things to happen. I want to do things, make lists, and no one can make that happen for me... EXCEPT ME.
That's where "Don't Wish. Do." comes from.
That is what I focused on all year.
I also had 2 MAIN goals:
1) Be nominated for a Utopia Award
2) Make a certain income for the year.
1) I was nominated for TWO awards!
2) I made MORE than my income goal for the year.
So... I have to say "Don't Wish. Do" was a great One Word for me.
What will my One Word be for next year?
Honestly, I have no idea.
I still want to focus on "Don't Wish. Do." BUT I want to add more to it.
I want to have a BIGGER 2017 than I had 2016.
Things to ponder.
What about you? Do you have a One word for 2017?
How about your 2016 "One Word"?
Leave a comment and let's chat!
Much love and happy reading,
