Let your light shine so brightly that others can see their way out of the dark – Katrina Mayer
Every year I have a word that captures my intent for the year. It serves as a reminder. An intention if you like of what I am working on for that year. It gives me something to check in with as I go along throughout the year. And when I’m feeling a little lost I ask myself if what I am doing is in line with my intention and it helps me to find my compass.
This year my word is LIGHT. This word is on my vision board and ignites my focus to stay on track, it has energy and meaning and keeps the fire of determination burning.
I find this works better for me than setting a new year’s resolution.
For me, the vision is shining my light, influencing, teaching and inspiring others and building networks.
Yes, there will be stumbling blocks and barriers along the way. And I will lean into every one of them, using the opportunity to learn and grow. Standing in, and shining my light where ever I am.
So what does a year of light look like?
I am so passionate about helping others to work well and live well, teaching them the tools to be more resilient and mentally fitter.
I will be shining my light in this space through an Appreciative Inquiry to improve the redundancy process for employees and employers, I will shine my light to find ways to help people have a better experience through an often necessary process. Watch this space – More to come.
I am looking forward to shining my light at the World Congress of Positive Psychology in July and sharing about introducing mindfulness to the workplace.
In 2018, some adversities encouraged me look at my life and think about how I would like to be remembered when my time comes. I will shine my light in a way that is truly me. Colourful, happy and gritty.
I will use my light to learn more, do more, get uncomfortable, be braver, and be bolder.
You are going to know my light!
What is your word for 2019?
Wishing you wellbeing
