One of my favorite personal practices is to choose "One Little Word" at the start of a new year.
This is a word that you want to get curious about for the next twelve months and open awareness around in your life. It's a word you want to bring into your daily doings and see how it manifests and weaves through all the aspects of your life.
It's usually a word that elicits positivity and a sense of "yes, this is me," or "yes, I want to see more of this in my life," etc.
My word last year was HUSTLE. I chose this word because I identify as being a hustler. I do a million fucking things and I do them well and I'm proud of that. I can balance and manage a lot.
And I was bringing my business out into the world last year, so I had to be a hustler. Build a website? Yes, I can do that. Create videos and content to reach my audience? On it. Handle three kids while my husband travels? You bet. Meditate each morning? Always. Make time for exercise, cook plant-based meals for my family, volunteer in schools, cultivate relationships with important friends, write another book....and on, and on, and on.
I know your list may look different, but if you are a woman, you are a hustler. You know what I'm talking about.
This year, my word is GRACE. I have put so much effort into, well, just about everything. This year I plan to see what spaces I can find in my life to settle into. Where is Grace already working in my life? Where can I let go as opposed to cramp down? How can I let life work for me as opposed to forcing it, which only creates tension for me?
WHAT'S YOUR ONE LITTLE WORD THIS YEAR?
Do you have one already? Could you identify one right now? Go ahead, choose one!
And as you go throughout your day today, see where you can find this word already resonating in your life...
