What is one word that sums up your 2015? I have been having such a grand time, asking everyone this simple question. The responses I have gotten, have been utterly fascinating to me, people have said words such as; stellar, gratitude, horrible, fantastic, boring, patience. This has been intriguing study for me, to hear each individual response and watch their disposition change as they reflect on their passing year.
When one response was horrible, it was a bit shocking and I found empathy flood my body for that person.
However, on the brighter side of things it made me realize that our life is a book of consecutive chapters, 2015 being just one of them; it is just a chapter nothing more, nothing less. Your own free will can sculpt your next chapter with vigor and the excitement of new beginnings. We are all so lucky to be able to embrace 2016 with a refreshing attitude of new beginnings. If last year truly was horrible or spectacular for you, you have two choices. One being keep on keeping on, or make swift drastic changes in your life to shake things up. It truly is up to you, as Albert Einstein says, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.”
So, if you want better, you gotta do better – that’s it in a nutshell my friends. A friend suggested trying something new and I am going to take this new project on, inviting you to do the same. I am hoping it will become a family tradition that we will embrace. We will call it the “Celebration of Greatness Jar.”
First get a very large glass jar with a lid and every time something fabulous happens to you, or you do something grand, that feels good in your soul, jot it down and drop a note in the jar. Invite everyone in your house to join in on the fun. It will be a new tradition to celebrate every year on New Year’s Eve reflecting on all the successes you have had or achieved in the passing year.
Call it the “Celebration of the Heart Tradition,” and it will be something to look forward to every year. How fun would that be?
This year, I have declared to have more fun and magical experiences, big and small. Why don’t you do the same, so when I ask you what your word is for 2016, and I will, you can shout out to me “UNSTOPABLE.”
Homework: Decide what you want your word to be for this next year and come up with a plan to make it happen.
Fill your 2016 jar full of happy moments.

What’s your word for 2015?
