I was recently challenged to choose my word for 2019. It took a little bit of time to see what resonated with me. I came up with Vibrant, Freedom, peaceful and Brave. This past year, my word was Action. I chose that word because I wanted to take action in my life coaching business. And I did take some action in my business, I started blogging again and I took some steps to make it official, but I lost my grandma over the summer and I let things go and never did finish my application for my LLC. I kind of lost myself in a Netflix binge of Gilmore Girls, which I currently only have one episode left of the “Year in the life” mini-series lol! I know now that I was calling this self-care but I was really just avoiding my shit. Anyhow, I hit the snooze bar on my year of taking action. I did, however, take action to do things I wanted to do this past year and in my own personal development. I went to Savannah, Georgia where I attended a day of BARE with the famous Susan Hyatt and I got to meet her for the first time and then I got to see her again in Chicago, this past October. This past year has had high points and low points. Even though, I stalled out a bit, I am proud of myself for all that I have accomplished this past year. Taking inventory your victories each year is so important. I did this last year and it really made me see that I did a lot in one year. We all have setbacks, they are bound to happen, but it is our mindset and attitude that matters the most. So with that in mind here are my top three accomplishments from 2018:
1. Being able to attend 2 Susan Hyatt events (Savannah and Chicago)! They were both OFF THE HOOK events and I am so glad that I was able to go! As Susan would say, “Be the person with the stories, not the regrets!”
2. Finishing the year strong! I got back into blogging (as you can see here!). I love to write and share my thoughts!
3. My health. This past year I’ve been going to a new Chiropractor who has been amazing. If you need a new Chiropractor, I highly recommend Dr. Kemmett at Loveland Chiropractic Offices, Inc. I don’t know if many of you know, but I have slight scoliosis and sometimes my hip hurts and gets out of whack. Going to the chiropractor made me realize how my health needs to be a priority. As a mom to a toddler, you need lots of energy and getting movement and exercise is now a top priority for me.
I am proud of myself for all that I did, even among a year of loss for our family. This past year, we lost three great aunts (all in their 90’s), my grandmother (she was 99!), my uncle and also the family cat, Princess. They all live on in memories and I’ll cherish them forever.
So, I realize that I haven’t revealed my word for the year yet. As I look to the New Year, my word for 2019 is BRAVE! I want to be BRAVE and not let my thinking and mindset hold me back. I want to take more risks and live a life that I love. I may be scared, but I can be BRAVE and take the leap to see what is in store for me and my family next year. I am planning to finish that LLC application and make this coaching business official!
What is YOUR word of the year for 2019? I would love to hear your word and the reason behind it in the comments. See you all next year!
