Hello. Its been a while since I popped into your mailbox and I thought I would wait a couple of days, until after your festive season mailbox clean out … to drop in …
What are your hopes for this year? What do you not want to repeat … this article might help you with some clarity if you are on the fence about the year ahead.
Initially when I wrote this, I was in that sacred week between Christmas & New Year … you know that week, when we can exhale, lay about with few, to preferably no demands on our energy or time. I don’t know about you, but its my absolute favourite. All the hustle and bustle is done, but the twinkly lights are still up. And I find it the best time to look back on the year that has been, to reflect and consider how I will do things differently next year, so I can wrap the closing year in a nice, neat bow, thank it for its lessons and learnings, to move forward freer … with a clean slate.
So many have spoken about what a long, challenging year it has been, but that is behind us now and we need to look forward to what is coming … onwards. So, with that in mind, I invite you to the Three Powerful Words Invitational for 2024.
Find a quiet place, outside is best [if possible], with a cup or a glass of something wonderful, a notebook and your favourite pen [I know you have one], and think about what it is that you would like to bring into your world for this new year ahead.
What do you want more of? How do you want to show up?
What do you want to achieve? How do you want to be treated?
How do you want to feel? What is not negotiable for you in 2024?
What would you like to learn? Where would you like to have more fun?
There are a couple of parameters to the Three Powerful Word Invitational.
- The words need to positive and aspirational.
- These three words need to be about YOU. Not the kids, the hubs, the wifie, the other half, the job, the house or the business, you get the idea – they must be about YOU!
- While Must Win Lotto are indeed three words, they need to be three distinct, separate words.
- Finally, if you do this process with me annually, they need to be three different words from last year.
Ok, so why the big deal Collette, why don’t we just barrel into the new year and see what it brings? No resolutions, no disappointments? Well, because in order to create the life we want to live; we have to point in a specific direction. There must be Clear Intention.
Many belief systems talk about declaring and writing down your intentions, scripturally it is referred to often as, Ask ~ Believe ~ Receive. And in order to ask for it, you need to define it.
We also use these words as Quick Reminders when the world is barrelling out of control in May or October. If we find ourselves a bit lost in July, these Three Powerful Words can be quick Course Correctors.
Is what I am doing right now or what is being demanded of me in alignment with my words? Then you choose … removing feeling forced and thus, defusing resentment.
