Have you noticed that every December people on Facebook start talking about their “word” for the coming year? I usually don’t give this a second thought but this year I decided to put a little thought in to it. Is there one word that I could come up with that encompass what I want out of the new year? Hmmm. I though it over for a bit. And I came up with nothing. If I’m honest, I didn’t try all that hard. But I can’t help but go right back to my favorite phrase: Just be cool.
I don’t mean, be cool, in the sense of style or aloofness. To me, this phrase means so many different things, all of which I’d like to bring right on in to 2017 with me.
To me, just be cool means:
• Keep a level head
• Don’t forget to relax and take some time for yourself
• Don’t be so quick to anger
• Take a deep breath and keep calm
• Don’t be hasty with decisions
• Roll with the punches
• Don’t forget to be yourself
• Never let them see you sweat (I REALLY need to learn to not wear my emotions all over my face)
It’s a phrase we use often with our kids to remind them of all of the above. What I love about this is that it works for business and personal goals. And since I have this print hanging in my front room, I see it every time I come and go from the house. It’s the perfect reminder. I’m excited to see what the new year holds! Do you make big sweeping resolutions or do you prefer to have an overall theme to get your new year started?
