It has been decided! My one little word for 2018 is……YES!
I have been thinking about what word would represent 2018 for me throughout the entire last year. Seriously. I would keep a running list of words in my self-care planner that would cross my mind and that I felt a connection with. As 2018 began to draw nearer, one word stood out in particular – YES.
With conversations with the husband about our goals for 2018, this word seemed to be more and more fitting. It became clear why I needed this word in my life. Never have I felt such a connection with a single word. Here’s what I decided.
I needed to be open, with my mind and heart, for what life will hold in 2018. So, therefore, I needed to be willing to say yes to more things instead of being the skeptical/reserved/indecisive type that I usually am when it comes to making decisions and taking action. I need to be more willing to accept life as it happens, and look on with confidence at the results of those choices.
So, here’s what I am saying yes to this year:
- finding myself
- being fearless
- open minds
- doing more
- empowering others
- being an encourager
- soul searching
- trying new things
- dreaming big
- following my heart
- being present
- positive vibes
- taking risks
- living life
Phew! That’s quite a list, but it truly encompasses the entirety of life. I love how much one little word really pushes you to be a better version of yourself. Inviting the word YES into my life will not only open my heart and mind to new things and taking chances, but it will also allow me to push beyond my personal restraints to get stronger as a whole.
I am so excited to be working with my word in a workshop by Ali Edwards, called One Little Word. Throughout the year, the workshop will provide monthly prompts and lessons to keep this one little word in the forefront of our lives, to make it a part of our life beyond just writing it down and calling it a day. I will be documenting the progress along the way, so be sure to follow me on instagram and subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay up to date with my OLW progress!
I am SO excited for what 2018 has to offer. I have a really good feeling about it, and I can’t wait to see what happens!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and found it helpful and inspirational! Have a great year and happy planning!
