You’ve probably heard of the practice of choosing a word as a theme for the year ahead. Have you tried it? Do you know why this can be such a powerful exercise? Simply stated, (and backed by science) this is because, when there is focus the energy behind it is more powerful.
Like a laser beam vs. a light bulb, the illumination from a laser is a steady stream of light. A laser is denser than a bulb, which is omnidirectional, shooting light out in many directions.
The difference is focus. Can you see how this would make an impact on your life?
Imagine if you carefully choose and applied a single word to your life for a year and each day you practiced considering the word and how it related to you at that time.
Can you see how it could create movement towards something, amplify this in your life, or make you more aware, just by simply focusing your attention?
Are you up for it? What is it you most want to attract, or feel, or be more aware of this year? Write down your word and place it somewhere that you will see it every day. Consider sharing this practice with someone you love and find out what they want to focus on in 2018.
My word for the 2018 is INTENTION. In just a few short days, I’ve seen how many times I refer to the meaning behind the word and realign my actions accordingly. There is no time to waste being multidirectional, splaying attention all over the place, even if it is so called “inspiring.”
Lately I’ve been applying a laser beam focus to my mission to motivate people to invest in self-love. The experiences people are having is impressive. I’m grateful to everyone who is using my suggestions, and sharing their stories with me. This fuels my focus even more so!

Journaling since 1975, I love to write. Pen to paper is an invitation for my inner voice to show up.
