I have only One Word for 2013 …
… and that word is possibility.
For the last several years I’ve been using one word as a way to focus and grow and move my life in the direction I want it to go. Rather than making new year’s resolutions that fall by the wayside within a few weeks, instead I pick a word and use it as a way to guide me through the year. I see this coming year being full of possibility.
A single word is a powerful thing. It carries both focus and clarity – two skills that can help you achieve your goals.
It also comes with no rigid expectations which leaves room for making mistakes, getting back on track, and beginning again right from where you are. Without guilt or a sense of failure.
Using one word is a concept that is becoming more common each year, but I also like to add another element by adding images and symbols, and creating my One Word Vision Cards.
I make a vision card using my word for the year – a small piece of art that represents my word in images and symbols. Then I hang it on the wall where I can see it every day. Then every month I follow up with an additional word and a new vision card. I find this process a very powerful way to stay on track with my goals and visions for the year with clarity and mindfulness. You can read more about my One Word Vision Cards here.
This is my possibility One Word Vision Card.
The charms are symbols. The heart reminds me to stay open to possibilities that speak to my heart. The key reminds me to choose only those possibilities that are a good fit for me. The amethyst is the stone of creativity and a reminder to stay connected to my source.
I printed the doors on fabric so I could sew through them and attach them to the background.
Together, words, images and symbols can create powerful magic.
Simple questions to ask myself when I feel stuck.
There’s no right or wrong way to use a word – simply pick a word, or let it pick you, and then let it speak to you. Let it lead you and guide you on your year-long journey.
