I keep seeing a lot of posts on social media about your “word for the year“.
Great words, like STRENGTH, CONFIDENT, RESPONSIBILITY, and CONTROL.
Kelly Epperson Simmons wrote a recent blog titled New Year’s Resolutions vs Word of the Year. She says resolutions can be vague and overwhelming. “Choosing a word is easier on our heads and hearts than resolutions. It seems softer perhaps, but can be even more powerful.”
Vague is no good! Powerful is!
According to Elizabeth Rider, an Online Influencer, “The first step to manifesting anything you desire is awareness and intention. A Word of the Year will set you in the right direction by bringing more awareness to your intentions.“
I want to be aware and intent.
I’ve decided I need three words.
Yes, it’s looking to be that kind of year, lol.
DEFINE, DECLINE, and DESIGN
these are my words for 2019.
I like it!
Length, breadth, depth.
My words for the year represent my life as a whole.
I will focus on DEFINING my goals for the year,
DECLINING those things that compete, distract, or derail those goals,
and DESIGNING a plan that I can grow with.
It’s a just say YES!
kind of plan.
The kind where I stop letting things happen and start making things happen.
After last week’s Chat on “success”, I am inspired by a fresh start.
I know, it’s just a date on a calendar, blah, blah, blah, but I do believe you have to begin somewhere so why not the FIRST of a NEW YEAR?
(c’mon, makes sense)
Do you have word/s for the year?
Words you hope to apply, accomplish, and/or avoid this year?

I’ve got words, 🙂
And…I DEFINE them!
I do believe 2019 is definitely off to a good start.
