This year I picked Fearless for my One Little Word. It's not necessarily a word of power but rather one of confidence and resolve. In life, at times, we let our own uncertainties keep us from doing things we would really like to do, whether it's finish that novel, travel through Europe, or start a new degree. Being fearless is not the same thing as being foolish, care and consideration are always a wise combination but it is the starting point for jumping out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary.
I think the true lesson to learn in 2017 is that what we focus on is what we bring into being. So if we focus on the negatives in our lives those things will grow in stature. However if we focus on the positives and the direction we want to head then the energy of our thoughts will bring those things into being.
I'd love to hear about your blank slate, your one little word, or what you plan to write in the story of your life in 2017.
