What qualities do you want to cultivate in the New Year?
I feel excited to share my end of the year practice of choosing three words to help guide and sustain me in the New Year. I’ve done this the past eight years, as inspired by Wendy Palmer, an author on embodied leadership and aikido teacher. I start thinking about what qualities would help me to live a balanced, loving life, as I continue to make my way professionally and navigate through each day’s challenges. I write my three words on a 3x5 card and keep it next to my desk where I see them everyday. I return to these words as part of my foundation, the ground on which I stand. Last year I explored: Love. Embody. Rejoice. This year’s words started coming to me in mid-November and I’ve made them official for 2021: Resilience. Value. Renewal. What three words will help you come back to center this coming year?
