Living a Life with Intention...A Year Long Series

Living a Life with Intention...A Year Long Series

I chose intention as my 2019 word of the year because it summed up exactly what I wanted to do this year.  I want every move I make to be made with clear intentions.   I don’t operate well in gray areas; I prefer my life to be very black and white. As I began to think about this word, the first thing that came to my mind was how? How do I live with intention?  That’s what I plan to explore on my blog this year.   Instead of just proclaiming my word for the year and writing a post about it at the end of the year, I want to focus on this word and each month, illustrate how I’m attempting to live a life with intention. Consider it my way of holding myself accountable to each of you for practicing what I preach!

2018 Year End Reflection and My 2019 "Word of the Year"

2018 Year End Reflection and My 2019 "Word of the Year"

I struggled with this year’s reflection.  The word I chose for 2018 was freedom.  This year I’ve never felt less free.  In fact, I’ve felt incredibly dependent and held captive.   How do I sum this year up in so many words?  Did I even manifest my word for 2018?  As I began to write this reflection, I realized that freedom did manifest in my life this year but not in the way I anticipated.

Sometimes You Just Have to Reset...

Sometimes You Just Have to Reset...

2018 hasn’t started the way I hoped it would. It’s been full of challenges that would seek to sideline me from my goals.  The vision board I created for this year has been an extreme help because I see it every day and use it as a reminder to stay focused, do the work and allow the universe to let freedom manifest in my life.   I can say I’m taking better care of myself. I’m treating myself better.  Taking time away when I need it, resting more, enjoying more experiences with my friends and my family and practicing daily self-care.   I’m slowly finding my balance and equilibrium and when it gets to be overwhelming, I just hit the reset button and begin again.  When I fall back into old habits and old mindsets, I just hit the reset button and begin again.  I'm letting go of the need to be perfect and embracing the desire to be authentically me and loving myself through it all.  I’m finding freedom slowly but more importantly, I’m finding myself again.

2017 Year-End Reflections and 2018 Word of The Year

2017 Year-End Reflections and 2018 Word of The Year

I choose the word, “HEAL”, for 2017.  At the time, I had no idea what I was asking the universe. 2017 was the year that broke me all the way down, revealing the cracks in my foundation.   I don’t remember a year like this; full of so many highs and devastating lows.

2016 Reflections and 2017 Word of the Year

Advance was my word of the year for 2016.  I advanced in my career by taking on new roles during our company merger and responsibilities that I believe put me in a better position to excel in 2017.  As an artist, I advanced by launching my website, new blog and working on my first book.

2015 YEAR END REFLECTIONS AND 2016 WORD OF THE YEAR

2015 YEAR END REFLECTIONS AND 2016 WORD OF THE YEAR

2015 is the year I was EMANCIPATED...

Emancipation is defined as The fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation.

As with every “one word” challenge, that word and definition manifested itself in my life during 2015. I was set free mentally, spiritually, psychologically, and emotionally from things that have been a burden on my spirit and in my life.
