I have chosen the word THRIVE.
I find reflecting on my story over the past five years that I tend to lose sight of what I want and need versus the potentially harmful external environment I still expose myself to, and my subconscious distracting me away, and not always keeping up with my conscious mind.
I was startled today by the realisation that I am acting like a drinker, I go to drinks parties, to the pub, sit there with all my drinker friends, feeling restless, bored, lonely, even in a crowd. I thought I was the problem, that the bored and restless and lonely was me, and I was the problem. But no, the problem is the choices I am making, which are a barrier to my thriving.
(Side comment on the above - I read a great quote recently:
“You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep other people warm.” )
I wish to see myself thrive in 2020. I wish to consciously consider my actions and choices with the question:
will this choice help me to thrive?
To thrive mentally
To thrive physically
To thrive professionally
To thrive personally
