Transformation , my word for the year. Sunita Saldhana

Last year was the first time that I used a word of the year or #WOTY. As I have mentioned in my last post of 2018, my word for last year was “me”.

Having a word or a phrase to focus on certainly helped me focus on those areas of my life that I felt were important and I learnt a lot about myself the last year.

Not my word.

As I read everybody’s blog posts on what their woty was, I realised that each one of us has a unique road to travel and though I was able to  relate to their words, I those words were part of their journey not mine. I had to come up with a word that reflected who I was at this point of time in life and who I will grow to be as the year progresses.

My word of the year!

This year I need to move forward. I know what I want to be and do and I know that there is a lot that I am capable of.  But I have also realised that I have fallen in love with myself and I am comfortable with the core person that I am. So I am not looking at changing who I am or what I value.  That is when I came up with the idea of ‘Transformation’ .

Not change.

Transformation is different from change in that I am not planning to become someone totally different but rather become better. To me transforming means honing the skills and talents that I already have and make them better, sharper; using them more.

I am generally a happy person, so I am going to practice becoming happier. I am a good writer, so I am going to write more. By concentrating on getting out of my cocoon and using my wings to fly, I will transform myself into a better me.

The confidence of being able to

Flying to become me

transform comes from the fact that I took the whole of last year to find out who I was and what I really, really wanted in life. Now that I know that, it is easy to move to the next stage of evolution. Opening up more, sharing more, being more.

That is what I want for this year!

What is your word of the year? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.

  1. Sunita, I loved the way you have put your sentiments across. Transformation is a huge thing and am glad you are taking this up. As you said it’s not to become someone else but a better version of yourself. That’s so honest and would be so self satisfying at the end of the year, though it’s a continuous journey. Wish you loads of luck and posivity.

  2. I love the way you’ve articulated the transformation you’d like to create this year. Wishing you every success in your goal, Sunita. May 2019 be the year that gives you success, happiness and accomplishments galore!

  3. What a wonderful way to embrace change . After all change is inevitable but if you consciously change /transform for the better you – WOW! I wish you well Sunita – May 2019 see more happiness, creativity and al that you want for yourself .
