Are You Satisfied You Choose The Right Word For You?
If so great! Or you maybe like me and have had second thoughts already. My word for 2013 was to be FOCUS and yes you can see it sitting up in the top right-hand corner of the card I made for the New Year. I have shared it in a couple of facebook groups, with my friends and this morning I shared it in a comment on Mari Smith’s blog post New Year 2013: One-Word Theme of ABUNDANCE and then I was on Nicoles Cody’s post What’s Your Power Word for 2013.
I was sharing my blog reading and my thought on my word FOCUS with Des as we walked on the beach this morning and he stopped me and said this doesn’t seem to be coming from your heart. We had established that I relate focus to work and that wasn’t my preferred mode of being. I want joy.
Des said: Focus doesn’t expand your vision or expand your sense of what’s possible, it closes you in. It is only speaking to your puritan mind that feels it need to be responsible, not speaking to your heart that wants to be extraordinary. It’s a brain word, Focus. You transmute what other people call work into joyful activity and this becomes a business through alchemy and amazing transmutation.
I then tossed around the following words shine (playing a bigger game), bold and the word that keeps calling me is abundance: financial abundance, time abundance, health abundance, creative abundance and community abundance. My heart knows what I want, you can see it has a prime position on the card above. My head chose focus because I have a tendency to be distracted by BSOS- Bright Shiny Object Syndrome and I know to shine in 2013 I do need to be focused. Now I am thinking Focus though for me is a FUD based word, (fear, uncertainty and doubt). As Des said:
Focus without passion is useless, it might get you through a day or a week, not through a year
I need a heart word, a word that sets me free to soar. Abundance is that word, it is empowering, it makes heart sing, I can focus on it , meditate on it , write and paint about it and I can reflect upon it in my daily life. I can now use my word, abundance to plan my year both personally and professionally for 2013. It feels good. Feeling good, having high vibes helps us become deliberate attractors and we then attract our desires.
What is your word or phrase for 2013?
Will this word transform your life?
Does it make your heart sing?
Please share your word and your thoughts in the comments.
Happy New Year: Dream Big
