Theme-Based New Year’s Resolutions

December 22, 2006  

The winter solstice is upon us here in the Northern Hemisphere (the summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere). And this is the perfect time to start reflecting back on 2006 and thinking about 2007. Last year I posted an article on the six tips for setting theme-based resolutions. If you haven’t read it, you can read it here.

    My theme for the year is authenticity.

    Quoting/paraphrasing Valerie Rickel, Founder of

    There is nothing more important or meaningful in life than honoring your authentic self–your true nature–and expressing it in the world. When you honor your most authentic self–your spirit–you are allowing your Light to shine and touch the world. Living authentically, in its simplest terms, is living your truth, the truth in your heart and soul.

    Living authentically is not always easy. It requires the courage to ask yourself the hard questions and be completely honest with yourself about what is truly important to you in life and how you can live your highest good. It’s following your heart’s wisdom, living your truth, and being real in every sense. When you are living an authentic life, you are contributing to a more authentic life experience for us all.

    Wish me luck.

    This year my theme is going to be INTEGRATEDNESS. What does that mean to me? I have taken the liberty of using some of the words from The Speed of Trust by Stephen M R Covey.

    “I have integrity. I walk my talk. I am congruent inside and out. I have the courage to act in accordance with my values and my beliefs. I am honest, not only telling the truth, but also leaving the right impression.

    “I genuinely try to be honest in my interactions with others. I am open to the possibility of learning new truths that may cause me to rethink issues or even redefine my values.

    “I consistently keep any commitments I make to myself.”

    This will take some work on my part…especially some parts of it. I am very open on my blog about who I am and what I believe. But a lot of my friends don’t read my blog. And sometimes I think they think I am different than who I am. Therefore, leaving the right impression will be a big one for me.

    INTEGRATEDNESS – Leaving the Right Impression.
