Here we are another year has begun and the overwhelming amount of work that needs to be done never ends, but I am ready for it. The first month of 2019 is coming to a close and I am more motivated than ever to enjoy this incredible year. This will be a year of tremendous growth - both in business and personally.
I’ve never really been good at doing resolutions, but I do love to set goals, and I love to aim high. Resolutions are so vague and I need measurable and actionable goals to move forward on. This year the goals are bigger than ever and I have to level up to meet them. I have to push myself further than I think is possible, but it is exciting. I am not going to play small any more in my life - I am going hard and stepping up.
At the end of 2018 I was trying to focus on what my goals for this year would be, and also on a theme for the year or - as many of you do - a word for the year.
I don’t think I have ever done this before - if I did; I didn’t remember the word by the end of the year or maybe even the end of Jan. A lot of words were coming up for me and floating around. I had a group of them that really resonated - they are ways I want to feel - deep in my core that will guide me in all the decisions I make.
These were some of the words I can remember - Strong, Vibrant, Powerful, Abundance, Light, Peaceful, Important, Confident. I can sit and picture myself as this woman, where all these feelings are fulfilled in my life, and for me it all culminates into being a fucking badass.
So I guess I am not doing a word - but a phrase.
BE A FUCKING BADASS.
I have been writing this at the top of my planner every day - as a reminder of what I am here to do.
I was on IG a few days ago and looked up RobinNYC (she is a Peloton instructor that I love) and she wrote, and I subsequently stole, “You woke up today. Might as well be a badass.”
It hit me hard, right in the heart, I felt myself grow stronger and I was truly inspired by that little sentence. Crazy how that can happen. it solidified my phrase for the year. and that is now my motto for the foreseeable future.
I hope it can do the same for you - if you are struggling or feeling down, remember you woke up today - you might as well be a badass. Why not? Brush it off, hold your head high and take a step forward into your badassery.
