Hello my lovlies! Last week I posted about a Word for the Year and a Thought for the Year. How are yours going? I’d love to hear what you have chosen, and of course, the WHY behind them. The why is where the really good stuff happens.
What I didn’t mention was it is so important to pick the right words. For your Word or Thought to focus on this year. But it’s also important with the words you use every day. Your personal dictionary.
One of the words that saddens me the most is JUST.
I’m JUST me. Oh, honey, you are so much more than that.
I just make cards. I just sew stuff. I just make jewellery. No, no no! It’s so much more than that. Words have power. They effect the way you think and act and feel. And the right words can make such a big difference.
Need some inspiration? Still looking for ideas for your Word for the Year? Need to give yourself the courage to go after that big, wild, crazy dream this year?
Mayi Carles – She says she is building a Creative Empire. I have borrowed that for my Word for the Year. So much better than “I’m gonna try to sell some stuff on Etsy”, right? Watch one of her videos – you can’t help but be excited. Her writing is the same. She bounces off the walls. After a pep talk from her, you feel invincible. That’s what you want.
Danielle LaPorte – In her book The Fire Starter Sessions, she asks if you want to be good or if you want to be a supernova. Good sounds average. Capable. Just enough. A ‘C’ on your report card. Who wouldn’t rather be a Supernova? That sounds awesome. Superhero capes and a whirlwind of fabulous. Another word I am using for my Word for the Year. (Yeah, I can’t help myself – I’ve got more than one Word for the Year).
Are you are going after your big, wild, crazy dream this year? Is this the year you say it’s now or never?
Don’t kinda, sorta, maybe give it a go.
Go charging after it and kick some butt.
Words have power. Choose yours.
