Who knew that picking a word to define the upcoming year would be so difficult. But when you’re picking one word, just one, it becomes almost obsessive. I’ve spent hours with my notebook doodling different words looking for the one that fits what I want to help guide me over the next 365 days.
What is this magical, mysterious declaration I’m making for 2014?
Sounds narcissistic, right? I’m a classic people pleaser and this year, I’m striving for a better version of me. I’m not aiming for perfection. What I want is to be the best me I can possibly be. To work harder than I’ve ever worked. Achieve goals I never imagined possible.
I can’t do any of that without knowing who I am and where I want to go. So, for 2014, this classic people pleaser is taking the bull by the horns and riding it bucking and snorting all the way across the finish line.
It’s my year, world. I’m going to own it.
