My Word of the Year has served me well! Each year I choose a word that will guide me as I look at new opportunties, face challenges and focus my time and energy. It’s become a tradition for my colleagues to share our Word of the Year.
Here’s what has been on my mind as the year begins.
1. to (cause something or someone to) move or change from one position or direction to another, especially slightly
2. (of an idea, opinion, etc.) to change
The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift.
~ Ellen DeGeneres
Your best creative assets do not occur unless you do a mental shift. You have to be in a positive frame of mind because inspiration is fleeting. I walk to work for inspiration and to clear my mind.
It’s been exciting to think of my word this year. It has been something I feel in the air and in the world. I have learned that embracing a shift or change is what helps us thrive in all ways. Shift is a word that shows a slight change and a slight new perspective.
I am looking at all the ways a shift will bring focus to my personal and professional life this year. I am open to the next steps. I intend to shift my practice with more productivity. This year I shift my leadership to NAPO Immediate Past President in May and focus on supporting our new President. I am shifting where I am volunteering and what I am committed to and emphasize.
Knowing what not to shift is important too! I am remaining constant in many ways as my core values as the same each and every year. I continue my practice with ADHD clients, learning more about ADHD and being a part of the ADHD community. It’s always family first for me! And of course I continue prioritize my health with healthy eating, pilates and a great night’s rest.
What’s your word of the year? I am looking forward to you posting it here!
