President's Message - January 2015
Happy New Year!
I’m writing this message at the end of a four-day, New Year’s Intention meditation and contemplative writing retreat. This annual retreat offers time to enter into the new calendar year with a sense of purpose and curiosity for what 2015 will bring. It’s a gift I give myself each year, providing a chance to hit a virtual reset button and begin the year with intention rather than resolutions.
One thing we do at the beginning of the retreat is find a word for the year; a word to go back to as the year progresses; explore all the things it can mean and all the nuances it contains. We are told not to look for the word, but rather let it come to us; make a space for the word to approach. My word for 2015 is “true.”
In this year, I want to focus on being true – true to myself and to others. And I want to discover what it means to be true to myself, to represent myself truly to others; to be myself and honor that in relationships with family, friends and colleagues. How do I hold onto my true self through thick and thin, see others clearly without the blinders of prejudice, assumptions or expectations? I don’t believe I, or any of us, can expect to reach what is true in others before we own what is true in ourselves.
So why am I telling you this? Well, maybe if I tell you about my word, you will help me to remember it as 2015 inevitably flies by. And as you put the tree out on the curb, pack away the lights for another year, and get the kids off to school after a long holiday, you might want to pause for a moment to let a word approach, and see what it might be. No need to worry about keeping New Year’s promises that may go by the wayside in a few weeks or months. A word for the year can be like a mantra or a friend, a reminder to come back to that place where you can reset and refocus, as often as you like.
May 2015 bring health, happiness and the best business year yet to all the wonderful women of Wisconsin Women Entrepreneurs.
