2017 has just begun and It is safe to say that it will be a good year.
Some people doubt others ability to tell because how early they have announced their thoughts. "It's only the third of January, there's no way you know how this year will be."
Well, I am here to tell you, that's not true!
You see, how this year will be is 99.9 percent up to you, and how you own it. While there are some incidents when you have no control over the outcome, the majority of issues can be solved with some thought and then some action.
Today in my first hour, one of our assignments was to pick one word that would inspire the changes we wish to make as human beings. My first option was the word "Positive". I chose this word to remind me that even on bad day, there is still some light at the end of the tunnel.
In a society like we live in today, it is easy to assume the worst in all things we are faced with.
The key is positive thinking.
I make that sound so easy, huh?
Well, I have been there, done that, got the t-shirt. It took until today, my first day back to school, for me to realize that if I told myself that posivity was the answer the majority of the day would end up okay.
Obviously, there were some things that I wish I would have handled differently, but I know this thinking will take some getting used too. It is like losing weight - it doesn't happen overnight!
Typically I am not big on New Years resolutions. Personally, they never last and I know I will end up giving up. While one word seems so much broader, it can signify so many changes that you, as a person, would want to make for yourself. One word is simple. It makes thinking about change less stressful.
I am no psychologist, but from one human being to another, I recommend choosing one word for 2017.
Take some time to sit and meditate over which word best describes what you want out of this year. For some it will be easy. For others, it may take a few days before they realize exactly what they want or need.
Once you have picked a word, you can visit http://oneword365.com/ and share your word with others, and see all the people who share your word. It can be inspiring to see all the people who want to better themselves, and better the world.
And with that, I am off! Peace and love to you and yours!
