New Year – New You {Finding Joy In The Journey}

“We are all stories in the end. Just make it a good one!”

~The Doctor Matt Smith (Dr. Who)

Can you believe it’s already January 2020!?!?!?! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are slowly easing into 2020. For me, January is always a quiet time of reflection and stillness. One of my favorite yearly January rituals is to select a word for the year and live with it. I choose my word by connecting with the essence of my future authentic self (think Christmas Carol with a better version of the ghost of Christmas future). In 2018, I chose the word “Grace” and Grace the cat showed up and taught me a lot about that word. Before I set down my 2019 word and pick a 2020 word, I wanted to share a little about my 2019 word. My 2019 word was…


What I love most about selecting a word based on my future authentic self is that I never know where the word will take me. Will it be a word that leads me down the path of reflection or expansion or both? What I learned about my authentic self in 2019 while living with the word Bodacious:

I adore…lattes and pumpkin scones
It feels good when…I connect with others at a soul level
I remember…experiences
I wear…my heart on my sleeve
I listen to…Playing For Change
I eat…kale salads and red meat
I move….with grace
I celebrate…sunrises and sunsets
I protect…dreams from naysayers
I give…smiles to passing strangers
I delight in….heartfelt conversations

This year when I journeyed to met my future self, I envisioned myself holding a market basket and then the following word popped into my head for 2020…


I have no idea where the basket and this word will lead me, but I know it will be a year of discovery and adventure.
