Less of a theoretical approach, but more of a personal goal that guides me these days is the FYI acronym. I really like acronyms because they are a quick way to organize ideas that are important to me. I can recall them quickly and easily for inspiration, and they can be especially useful if I get into a jam. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on the acronym F.Y.I, and using that as a mantra. Allow me to explain.
So, what is F.Y.I? We all hear that F.Y.I stands for “For your information,” right? For me, the “FY” has come to mean “Finding Your...” or “Following Your...” and the “I” changes, depending on the situation and what it is I need to find (or follow) at the moment. Let me take it a step further.
In my own journey, FYI has stood for a number of things: Following Your Intuition, Finding Your Identity, Finding Your Inner... strength,
And, with this, I felt like there’s no way I could be alone in my search for these things. This process, I realize, is a continual, lifelong journey, and I will always be on a quest for one or all of these things at one time or another. I also suspect that these things will shift and grow over time...with the hope and prayer that I do, too.
So, please know that, as I am here to help you on your journey, I am on one of my own as well. Perhaps we can learn and grow together. So, whatever your FYI is (or even if you don’t know quite yet), let’s get to work!
