I have been participating in picking a word to represent the year for the past 5 years. If you follow along with Ali Edwards then you probably already know what I am talking about- if you don’t go check her out (she is amazing!). Essentially you pick a word to focus on for the year, last year I picked focus. I wanted to focus on what mattered and let go of the little things.
I would say that I was not as intentional with my word as I would have liked, if I am being 100% honest I even had to go back to my blog this summer to remind myself what word I picked! I would also say that I did better with this than ever before, I had to let a LOT of little things go. Between working full time, having a baby, working on side hustles and trying to be a present wife, friend and daughter there just wasn’t a whole lot of time to let the little things in.
So 2019 is here. How? I’m not really sure, I think I blinked and all the sudden the calendar changed. I obviously have not found a way to slow time yet, maybe one day. Anyways, I spent a lot of time this year self-reflecting, figuring out what I want, trying projects, and failing. I felt like I was on a hamster wheel this past year, losing a little bit of myself and then finding myself, over and over.
After a lot of thought and a lot of signs from the universe, one word kept coming up a lot. That word is:
abundance– having a lot of something.
I want abundance in all areas of my life. I could go on and on about the vision for each area that I have, but for time sake (and your eyeballs) I will share the areas in which I hope to grow in this year.
I will share in more detail about each area another day.
Do you pick a word for the year?
