As I’ve yammered about around here myriad times before Im not a resolution maker.
I tend to choose a word or phrase which I want to define my next 365 days & simply live each day with that as a backdrop.
This year’s word, not surprisingly, is RUN. The surprising piece, however, is the reason why.
You see, in much of my life I tend to be very Type B is there even a Type B? For sake of my post lets say yes.
Im laid back, mellow, and pretty much the least fraught-with-anxiety person you’ll meet.
While this is a great trait in some capacities (please to see Ren Man is more Type A and cross reference under We both couldnt be that way or the domicile would be crazyfrazzled) when it comes to goal achievement it can be a hindrance.
There are things I wish to accomplish this year (oooh foreshadowing. coming soon in a future post.) & which I fear Im not moving toward as quickly as I might purely because I take for granted the fact I have all the time in the world to do so.
And I dont.
None of us do.
None of us can be certain we are guaranteed anything more than the moment we are currently in.
As a result my word for this year is RUN.
In the direction of my dreams.
Toward things I might fear and not away.
And yes. I entirely mean it in the literal sense as well
It’s a one word reminder to keep moving forward and not grow complacent where I stand today.
And, because we all know I like to wear my mantras, I choose to assume you do too.
I had the opportunity to get the ring pictured above for myself (very cool huh?) and decided to pass the opportunity & a challenge along to you.
