At the beginning of the year, I came up with my one word. If you are not familiar with it, the concept is to choose one word to reflect on for the year instead of a list of “set yourself up for failure” resolutions. Since then, I have been struggling with the word I chose. RESET.
Last year, my dad passed away. I shared the story here. Losing him changed me, is still changing me. It made me look deeper at my life, personally and professionally. This event that you logically know will happen someday – but you never really believe that someday will come – has brought all the questions and contemplations of my own life and mortality, as well as a complex and deep sense of loss. However, it has also caused me to be more intentional and to make sure I am spending my time and energy doing what really matters.
That is what my one word is all about. Changing my position, resetting to the things that are most important.
