The 1st weekend of the New Year. For some of you, it may feel as if your new goals are being tested and temptation is everywhere. For some, you may feel you need to say “yes” to every invite and social request. Today, stop and think about what Fierce means to you. It may mean tackling that new HiiT workout, hiking a new trail, trying a new class. It could mean spending time connecting with family or a friend that you don’t see often enough. Maybe all you need is to spend some quiet time meditating, writing in your gratitude journal or just enjoying a quiet cup of coffee. So often when asked how we are, the word “busy” is the answer. If the word “busy” means you are not enjoying your day to day commitments or you are missing out on real connections with the people you treasure, being “fierce” will continue to elude us. As I look at how I am going to elevate my life to fierce this year, I am letting go of the word busy. I will be strong, brave, kind, unstoppable and fierce. In my work, in my relationships and in my quiet life. I am embracing Fierce to reach my goal of getting to the Next Level in all I do. What does Fierce mean to you?
