I’ve read articles about choosing one word to guide you through a year. I’ve had “life words,” that have carried me through periods of my life, like “hope,” and “fearless.” “Fearless” will still be with me as I move forward. It’s still my primary life word.
That said, I decided to choose one word as a focus point for 2016. I wrote a list this morning that included words like, “thrive,” “purpose,” “beyond,” and “dare.” “Dare” almost won, but I finally settled on “push” because once I wrote it down, the word would not leave my mind.
“Push” resonated with me – it implies that force is needed. Push/pushing involves strength and risk and effort. For me, to push is a challenge that must be met with intention.
Several areas of my life need a push. Health, finances, career, creativity are the four main areas, but there are certainly more. I need to push boundaries, limitations, and expectations – both mine and others’.
I am by no means comfortable with/in my life, but I’ve certainly grown complacent. Due to health issues I’ve had, I feel like I’ve rested enough. To be honest, I feel a bit stuck. Time to push.
