The new is just around the corner and with it a whole host of new possibilities and beginnings.
Yet I don’t feel as excited as I usually do at this time of year.
Maybe it’s because I have held this turning of time with such high hopes of change only to be disappointed when the magic of new year hasn’t changed anything.
This year I am entering 2018 with a determination, not hope.
2018 I am taking charge of my future rather than leaving it to hope and rolling with whatever comes my way.
With only two years before I turn 40, I want to change my destiny from struggling to accomplished. From accepting what I’m giving to getting what I want.
So, my word for 2018 is…
Now when I say own, I’m not going to spend the buying loads of new things, that would go against my Slowly Lived mentality. No I mean I’m going to own my life.
I contemplated choosing control as my word but I felt this wasn’t quite right. It was too harsh a word and uninspiring.
So here’s to 2018, hope it’s a good one for you.
