So, this year, even though it’s only been one day, my friend’s daughter, who I look up to in so many ways, asked us on our chat group what word we would choose for the new year. She said she likes to pick an innovative word every year that focuses on all aspects of our daily lives. I thought this was a great idea.
My two words for this year are inspiration and connection. Last year I didn’t set myself goals, I didn’t have any focus in my life, and I had no direction. Last year I had no inspiration, and I didn’t inspire others. I was more focused on how others viewed me or what they thought of me. In other words, I focused on things that didn’t matter. Last year helped me grow; I learned a lot about the things I did and why I did them.
After last year, a year of growing and honesty, I will focus on connecting with myself and others. This year I am helping set up a coffee stand from scratch, helping train the new employees, creating recipes, and hopefully, I will connect with my new team. I want this new stand to inspire every person that comes through.
I want to focus on connecting with my surroundings, and with the community, and be inspired by these connections. Everything in New Hampshire has inspired me in some way or has helped me grow inch by inch. I’m not a new lady this year, but each new year is shaping me into the person I want to become. These two words I have chosen will help develop this year into what it should be.
What is your word for this year?
