Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap that long list of goals you won’t remember three weeks from now anyway.
Choose just one word.
One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long.
It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, but also you. It will become the compass that directs your decisions and guides your steps.
Discover the big impact one word can make.
One word. 365 days. A changed life.
Choose your word, and fill out the ‘JOIN’ form. It’s that simple.
If you blog, take time to write about your word—you can add your blog post to your online profile when you join. (You can do the same thing with a Facebook status too.) But if you don’t want to write about it, that’s okay. Still join. And then tell someone—a family member or friend—what your word is and why you chose it. There is so much power in saying our words out loud.
One Word 365 is more than a new way to approach resolutions. It’s a global tribe committed to journeying together and living intentionally. Connect with others who have chosen the same word or live in your area. Together, you can inspire and challenge each other to live purposefully all year long.
It’s time for a OneWord365 Quarterly Review.
I know, right?! Wasn’t it mere days ago we declared our OneWord365 for the year? Brought life to it by linking up here, maybe even connecting with our tribes?
But this is the thing about time, whether you want it to or not, it marches on. One quarter of 2014 is about to be history. One quarter.
I don’t know about you, but gigantic chunks of 2014 have not gone as I expected. Death of my dad, work projects not panning out, still not famous. All of which are true and the way I’ve phrased them, 2014 sounds like a bum year. But is it?
And that is why it’s good to pause, take stock, and see if our lives are actually as they appear. Set aside some time this week for a quarterly review of your OneWord365. Questions you could ask include:
This is the beautiful part of pausing and building in time to review – we move from being on autopilot to being more present in our own skins, our own lives, our own messy stories.
True, the unexpected death of my father was not what I had envisioned when #trust picked me for the year. But as I look back on only this first quarter, I see how #trust is truly the one for this journey.
I do best with accountability so I host a monthly link-up where we touch base on our one word. A quarterly reflection would be the perfect time to join in! You can get more details on my blog, but overall, it’s pretty simple. Write a post, link up next Tuesday, and visit a few of the fellow OneWord365 travelers.
The link-up will be open from next Tuesday, April 15th to Tuesday, April 22nd. Take some time this week to reflect on the first quarter and write your post. Then come link up on Tuesday. We’d love to hear how you’re doing with your OneWord365!
