One Word for 2020

Instead of setting resolutions, the past few years I have opted to choose a word as an intention to guide my year. I chose to swap out lofty, unrealistic goals for a gentler approach that allows for the normal ups, downs, and unpredictability life brings. This year, I do have some resolution-type intentions I’m setting…

End of the Year Review: 2019

At the beginning of 2019, I chose one word to focus on and grow in throughout the year. I used to choose three words, but last year I narrowed it down to one. I enjoyed having a single, overarching intention that guided me through my year. Before I recap, a few highlights from 2019: Reconnected…

If It Doesn’t Serve You, Let It Go

Does anyone else have the tendency to hold on to things longer than they should? 🙋🏻 That’s definitely me. Somewhere along the way, I developed this warped “once you start something you have to finish it” mentality that has had me holding onto things way longer than I should be. That has included: Books Workout…

One Word for 2019

I’m not a resolution person. Sure, I set goals (I do that all year) and the New Year is a great time to review and look at those goals. But for me, the new year is the time I set an intention for the upcoming year. It can be an area I want to grow…

End of the Year Review: 2018

At the beginning of 2018, I chose one word to focus on and grow in throughout 2018. This was the first year I chose only one word instead of three for the whole year so I was curious to see how that played out for me and my own personal growth. Before I dive too…

One Word for 2018

For the past few years, I’ve been choosing three words to guide my year instead of New Years Resolutions. As much as I love goals and I think the start of a new year can be a great time to reflect on your life, New Years Resolutions can often seem a little empty to me….

End of the Year Review: 2017

At the beginning of the year, I chose three words to grow in and help guide me throughout 2017: dare, light, and adapt. Dang, a lot has happened this year! For a few of my highlights, I… Got engaged…. and married! Spent a week in Florida with my sister and grandparents. Paid off all my debt….

Change of Pace

It’s been a while since I posted something on here other than a monthly review. So I figured now is the perfect time for a little update. The first half of my year was crazy. I didn’t really travel anywhere (well, except Florida, cause who doesn’t love the beach, right?), which was way different than…

Three Words for 2017

Goals are great. I love goals. I’ve got a huge bucket list of goals for my life. I’ve got goals for the next three months and for the next three years. But a few years ago, I strayed away from New Year’s resolutions. I would always make these resolutions that were big and grand and…

End of the Year Review: 2016

At the beginning of the year, I chose three words to grow in and help guide me throughout 2016: balance, fullness, and detachment. It’s been a long year and a lot has happened. For a few of my highlight, I… Traveled… a LOT (see here, here, and here for a few of my blogs on my…
