word for 2012
i have been debating about this over and over in my head. thinking. planning. scheming. dreaming. rethinking. second guessing. and trying to put my finger on just the right word for this year. last year, my word was healing. a deeply personal and vulnerable word. and it was exactly what i needed. my year was honestly full of healing… mentally, physically, spiritually, financially.
but the word i keep hearing over and over again, especially for my business, is momentum.
i am not sure why i keep returning to this word. but i can’t seem to shake it. not. one. bit.
do you ever have the feeling that life will overtake you and you will ride the wave of momentum? all of the hours of work that have gone before. the blog posts. the putting your heart out there. the teaching. the sweat and tears and telling your story over and over again. the satisfaction that only comes from doing the deep work in your heart that no one else sees except for god. that somehow all of the preparation you have undergone will have been to prepare you for this one moment. that all of the puzzle pieces will start falling into place.
that is exactly how i feel right now standing on the beginning of this year.
like momentum is going to overtake me this year. that the timing is just about perfect for big dreams to be falling into place. that i will see an increase in touching people’s lives. that i will see an increase in income and seriousness as a business. that my art will go from being a hobby to being a successful and fulfilling business.
what i haven’t shared yet is that this completely terrifies me. when i first learned how to ski i remember the fear i felt about going too fast down the hill. yes, i was the one snow plowing the entire way down the mountain. so awkward and clumsy. and i rarely ever speed when i am driving. going fast just scares me. i like to be in control.
it’s somewhat comical that momentum would be my word for this year. maybe this is why i decided to make such big and lofty goals for 2012. i just sense that this is going to be a big year for my business and that i want to reach farther than i ever have before. not that i expect to reach every single goal, but that i want to stretch more than i ever have before. i truly want to keep building momentum in my business and my personal life to see the destiny of my life fulfilled.
what is your word for this year?
