Consistency. Collaboration. Service. Intuition.
These are my words for 2019.
I believe deeply in setting an INTENTION, then focusing your ATTENTION and then practising NO-TENSION.
Let me explain.
The birth of an idea starts with a mere though of something that we want to create. We have an idea and then we set it in motion by creating an INTENTION around it.
Then we focus our ATTENTION on really making it happen. We think it into reality and then put energy and action into having it manifest from an idea into a real thing.
And then the final part, the most important part in my mind, is the NO-TENSION. The part where we detach from any of it actually coming to fruition or turning into the outcome that we desire. You see we can hope and think, increase energy and action but sometimes the universe has different plans. So as much as we can create, it is important to remember that we are actually CO-creating every step of the way.
So these are my words for 2019 and here is why.
Consistency: I want to practice consistency in every area. Exercise, meditation, work, diet, friendships, family love. With consistency there is growth and with growth there is change.
Community: It takes a village to do anything, to live to breathe, the be happy. Without that we have nothing. I commit to showing up for my community and growing it by hosting dinners, organizing trips and attending different types of events.
Service: I believe the most powerful thing you can do is help others. By helping others, we are actually helping ourselves. I commit to volunteering at least once a month with different organizations.
Intuition: I believe that we each hold an innate wisdom and already have the answer to every single question. I personally access my wisdom the most when I am in nature and by myself. I plan to spend more time doing both in order to tap deeper into my own wisdom.
And if none of this yields the results I want it to, that is okay too.
So now it's your turn. What do you want to create in 2019? What is your word(s)?
If you are not sure, take some time to think about it.
Go outside, move your body, be by yourself.
Take out your journal and your pen and write. Write a lot or write a little. Write with no expectation. I promise you, the words you are looking for will come. And when they do, write them down and put them somewhere where you can be reminded of them everyday. Then, let the magic unfold.
