Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014! I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and rang in the New Year in style. I certainly enjoyed the holidays with my family but also used this downtime for a healthy strategy session. I have lots in store for you for 2014!
For those of you who know me, you know that I do not make New Year’s resolutions. Instead, I like to develop a personal theme each year. Last year’s theme was, “Knuckles down, chin up, GAME ON!” This year’s theme is a little bit different, and I’ll tell you why. I noticed that most of my previous themes have been something I’m striving for. But this year, I wanted to develop a theme that is a statement I’m going to live. So the 2014 personal theme of Shanna Bright is (drum roll please) … I am abundant in health, wealth, joy and sparkle!
Of course, health and wealth have deeper meanings. For example health is not only a healthy lifestyle but also a healthy attitude, healthy relationships, healthy business etc. And wealth refers not only to good fortune but a wealth of gratitude, a wealth of experience, wealth of knowledge, etc.
The word “joy” is pretty self explanatory. Joy is a wonderfully descriptive word and and awesome emotion to live in. The word, “sparkle” was chosen after I had a conversation with one of my good friends. He said to me, “Shanna, you know, you are the only person who understands what I mean when I say, ‘I want my soul to sparkle’.” I really loved that idea and so I wanted to make sure to put the word sparkle into my personal theme for 2014. Plus, with the last name of Bright, I always feel a bit of pressure to shine.
One of the reasons I choose a personal theme is that I’m not making a promise I could possibly break. In fact, it’s not a promise at all. I’m meant to emobdy this theme each and every day.
So tell, me … What’s your personal theme for 2014? Do you like this idea, or are you still a firm believer in resolutions? If so, what are your resolutions or goals for 2014? How to do plan to achieve them? Leave a comment below and let’s learn from each other.
No matter how you plan to make it a great year, I wish you a spectacular 2014 filled with all the love, laughter and success you can stand. All my best to you!
I think the theme idea is great! I have been thinking of my own and
just today it came to me. “Dream and believe the IMPOSSIBLE”. Thanks for
sharing and encouraging.
That’s a great theme, Janna! I am sure it will serve you well in 2014 and help you achieve the impossible! All the best for a fantastic year!
Be yourself and move forward… “with sparkle and joy!”
Hi Katherine! Good to hear from you. I’m glad you like the theme! Hoping to reconnect on one of these visits to LA. Always booked with meetings at the Club. Hope you’ve seen the new Club in the City National Bank building. It is marvelous! Hope you are well and wish you all the best for a fabulous 2014! – SB
