As the year comes to a close I have been prepping and planning for the new year. For the last few years, I have come up with a theme. It's generally one word. A word that has so much power and energy behind it that it propels me through the year.
For 2016 it's FOCUS.
I have been saying that word a lot. I even made these images and a wallpaper with the word focus in it. This year was a no brainer! I have to stay focused in 2016.
I mentioned that I am starting a business. In order to be successful, I need to be focused. I need things in order, processes in place, commitment, and time management. I found myself using the word FOCUS, a lot. My heart and mind are set on being successful. In 2016 I want to focus on all the little steps it takes to get there.
This month I have been putting things in place so that I will reach each milestone along this journey. To me having a theme is what sets the compass for the year. I have spent so many years lost and not moving forward that I had to do something! I gave myself something to accomplish every year.
I started coming up with themes for the year a while ago. One thing that I have noticed is whatever I focus on is what I cultivate. One year I focused on Love. During that year I eliminated a lot of toxic people and relationships, I fully embraced myself, and really opened myself up to love.
This year I focused on Change.
2015 was full of changes for me. I moved, had a baby, and I've been doing things a lot differently. I changed, grew, and evolved. Even my website changed this year. I became so focused on being a mom and starting a business, that I changed. This year was amazing!
2012 – Creative
2013 – Dream
2014 – Love
2015 – Change
2016 – Focus
If you haven't ever created a theme for yourself I challenge you to do so. Pick a word or a phrase, maybe even an area of life that you really want to focus on and see some change. My theme serves as a reminder of all my goals, the reason I push myself, and why I do what I do. It keeps me focused on the things that matter.
It is my goal to help others especially women who are where I was several years ago. So I will be focused on launching Positive Forward Movement, LLC and making a positive impact on the lives of others.
