I’ve never done this before but this year, for many, many reasons, I am choosing a word to help guide and to ground me in 2013.
Part of why I have never done this exercise, even though I’ve wanted too, is because it has always seemed really crystals-dippy-woowoo to me. Turns out, I am the sort of person who IS crystals-dippy-woowoo. In fact, I am really, really interested in all of that sort of thing. In fact, I’m all about it in my personal life – I’ve just been too scared to write about it before and share that part of me.
Well, NO MORE! One of the things I’m going to work on working on in 2013 is letting go of my fears. I am really going to try to figure them out – and I’m starting with this one.
Why have I been afraid of letting my readers know about this part of me?
Mostly because I’m afraid that I’ll be taken less seriously as a good business writer if you know that I wear mala beads, have a talisman, feel like foxes are my spirit animal, burn incense, have a daily intention list that I review, love learning about crystals, and adore most positive psychology. I believe in positive thinking, manifesting, law of attraction, and so much more.
I have been afraid that if my readers knew all of this about me that it would dilute the hard work I’ve put into writing my books.
I hope that I’ve been wrong all of these years. A lot of those skills and beliefs that I have are what allowed me to write those books. This way of thinking and those practices have helped me make my dreams come true.
I’m going to embrace it. And that is where my GROWTH begins.
My word of 2013 is GROWTH. I am going to do all kinds of growing y’all. 2013 is going to be the best year yet for my business and I’m going to finally let it happen.
If you have a word of the year, or decide to choose one after reading this post, or know of any good positive think resources I should check out, leave it in the comments. I’d really like to know others are doing this with me.
