I’ve spent weeks toying around with ideas for my Word of the Year for 2024, trying on different words for size to see if there was something that really resonated.
And then it came to me (whilst looking at the Thesaurus at another option that didn’t feel quite right), that my word should be…
I bang on about harmony all the time in my colour and style consultations, doing image consultant training, and generally, because everything that aligns with you, that is in balance with you, your personality, your colouring, your body, your lifestyle, and location are in harmony.
As a former musician, I love harmony, it makes my body feel happy and relaxed.
When I see colour combinations that work together – both with each other, and the person who is wearing them,it makes me feel relaxed at a gut level. I always feel it at my core.
Harmony feels like it brings some ease (and I’d love some of that too), it brings quiet satisfaction rather than frustration and angst.
I already work hard (my husband thinks too hard), and so focusing on what creates harmony rather than doing for the sake of doing, is something that I think would be worthwhile for me.
I’ve spent 2023 cultivating some new skills (learned some watercolour painting, really started sewing again and getting some of my old skills back), cultivated relationships with new and old friends, as well as trying to cultivate the seeds that have been sewn in the past making incremental improvements to programs and courses.
I’d love to spend 2024 helping you find harmony with your own style (it’s personal for a reason), to find out who you are on the inside, and show you how to express it on the outside – in glorious harmony.
Finding Your Focus Word of the Year
If you’re still looking for your Word of the Year for 2024 here’s an inspirational list (of course there are so many more words than what’s on this but it’s a great place to start, then you can, like I did, move to the Thesaurus to find alternatives that maybe align even more with how you’re feeling about what you’d love more of in your life).
You could look at finding a word that’s one of your values, so that you make sure that you don’t stray from your best path. Or it could be setting a word as your intention for the year. There is no one right way of deciding on your word (or it could be a phrase if that floats your boat), do what feels right for you.
