Happy Birthday to Me | My One Word for 2017


Today is my 47th birthday.

I am a Capricorn, born at the tail end of the Year of the Earth Rooster.

Capricorn is an Earth sign.  Ganeshaspeaks.com shares that Capricorns have many positive qualities:  “Faithful, Ambitious, Self-controlled, Determined, Responsible, Sincere.”

According to ChinaHighlights.com, Earth Roosters are “lovely, generous, trustworthy, and popular with their friends.”

Whether or not you believe in astrology, you have to admit, it is fascinating.  And I do see many of the characteristics listed in myself.  I don’t know if I really believe in astrology, but I AM intrigued by the Earth parallels in both signs.

One Word

In 2015, when I turned 45, inspired by Chris Brogan, I picked 3 words to define my year:  cashflow, sensei, and healthy.  In 2016, my 3 words were listen, clear, and travel.  I set intentions by choosing 3 words each year.  I am happy with the results.

This year, I am breaking with tradition and picking just one word, inspired by the Earth parallels, and my desire to bring more focus and clarity into my life;  My word for 2017 is grounded.

I see more tree poses in my yoga practice, a streamlining of projects, and a major decluttering in my future.
