One of my friends/coaches Tonya Leigh Williams has just posted a great write up on her Savoring Life blog about the Unresolution movement and what to do instead of setting the same old resolutions for the new year.
I particularly like her idea of beacon words that you use and post everywhere to inspire you to get to your end game. You can read more about Tonya’s perspective on beacon words, get her unresolution worksheet or sign up for her Slim, Chic and Savvy program by clicking here.
I’ve been having a hard time choosing just one word of the year so the idea of three beacon words really resonated with me. I didn’t have to think very hard when deciding mine – Release, Nourish, Celebrate!
Release – I need to release all the things holding me back from stepping fully into my power at work, as a writer, and to take control of my health. My new acupuncturist is a major player on the team that will help me do this.
Nourish – This one is more than just about stocking up on healthy foods although I’m excited to do that too after too many sweets over the holidays. In 2011 I plan on nourishing my creativity too, filling it with self care and inspirational adventures, deeper connections with other writers and my family. The photo is Islay Bear surrounding himself with things that serve him – like his best friend Larry the Lobster who never leaves him.
Celebrate – if I have to pick just one word to sum up where I’ll be in 2011, it’s celebrate. After all that release and nourishment, I’ll be able to more fully step up in every aspect of my life and can already feel what it feels like to celebrate that!!
I happened to glimpse the clock in the bedroom at 11:11:11 on 1:1:11 and am taking that as a sign from the universe that I’m on my way.
Surround with all that nourishes
