Show Up As Your Strongest Self
I love this time of year, when life slows down a bit, and I finally have time to think and dream and make plans for the new year.
For the past few years, I have been picking a “word of the year” as a way to help me focus on the aspirations I want to achieve and the behaviors I want to follow in the new year. I first learned of this idea from the Happier with Gretchen Rubin podcast.
This year, I have chosen the word, “stretch,” because I want to stretch / do yoga for 20 minutes every day, and I also want to stretch beyond my comfort zone in my career and personal life. I buy a necklace every year to keep my word in the forefront of my mind. In the photo, you can see my words for the past two years: movement (2022) and progress (2021).
This year, I plan to stretch myself and show up as my strongest self physically, mentally, and spiritually. By showing up as my strongest self and stretching beyond my comfort zone, I plan to make 2023 the best one yet!
