New year's resolutions are not for me. Instead, I have goals, dreams, and ambitions. Some of which I renew on January 1st, some I adapt to changing circumstances, and then there are some that I let go of.
I choose a theme for each new year based on one of my core goals.
Some years I set the theme with intentions, other years, it just sort of finds me - as it did for 2023. A few days ago I received a package from a friend who shares my quest for self-improvement, living mindfully and with purpose, and treating our bodies and minds with love and kindness. Our gifts to one another always come from the heart and are very personal. She gets me.
This time she gifted me a set of motivational wraps which come with pendants (that can also be attached to your sneaker's laces, perfect for this REALTOR® on the Run) from Momentum Jewelry. Each pendant is engraved with a motto, or spark, a gentle reminder when things don't go as planned, doubt is whispering in your ear and wants to hold you back, or you just need to refocus on your why.
Intuitively, I picked DECIDING comes first as my theme for 2023. It is my reminder to not just dream but to go after it, to change I wish to I will, or I am. Making the decision is the first step to realizing one's dreams. Growth can only happen if you decide to improve.
I have a few dreams and have decided which one will get my full attention this year. When I reflect on 2023 on December 31, I am going to say: I am so glad I made that decision!
What about you? Would you pick one of these three? Do you have a theme for 2023? Feel free to share, I'd love to hear all about it!
*Wishing you a happy, healthy, new year filled with precious moments that will turn into the best memories. May 2023 be a kind and gentle year for us all!*
P.S. I do hope there'll be many homeowners deciding to make a move this year. This market (still) needs you! Inventory levels are still very low, rates have come down from their late autumn high, and the spring market is just about to begin.
