2023

Do you have a word of the year? I started last year, and I enjoyed having a focus! Last year my word was "Intentional". It truly was a theme for the decisions I made whether it was something as simple as whether or not I was going to do the dishes, to how I wanted to feel about certain situations, to the areas where I spent time.

Believe me, though, it got me in trouble a couple of times because I broke out of my typical people-pleasing pattern. I disappointed a few people but I gained respect from others.

It took a while to settle into the lifestyle of being intentional - like I said, it was breaking out of my typical pattern a lot of the time - but it has become habit and my new "pattern" for a lot of things. Of course, there are areas that still need practice. But I can say with 100% confidence that my new pattern is intentionally saying yes - or no - to how I spend my time and things that bring positive, creative, energetic or even negative energy.


2022 was a year of growing and evolving. In the process of being intentional, it forced me to examine habits and beliefs and really figure out if it's something I want to hold onto. My life coach gave me the analogy of finding an old piece of jewelry in the attic. I get to examine it and determine if I want to keep it and HOW I want to keep it. Do I want to keep it in its current state? Do I want to have it cleaned and restored? Do I want to replace a piece or part of it? Do I want to throw it away altogether? Wow, this is such an interesting concept! I highly recommend you try it out.

Using this analogy, I am still in the midst of re-evaluating my faith and relationship with God. Spoiler alert, this has also lead to navigating uncharted waters with family and friends. But I'll tell you that there is something intensely satisfying about finding your tribe. Your true tribe. 💛


So, 2022 was the year I set out to find my wants and desires. I got a few piercings and tried alcohol. I wrote a novel and ran several races. I loved. I rejected. I was loved and I was rejected. But you know what? I wouldn't change any of it for the world. I'm still figuring my shit out, but I'm much farther along than I was a year ago, or even 6 months ago.


Cheers, 2022!


Now... drum roll, please. Drrr drrrr drrrrr


My word for 2023 is CURIOSITY.


I went back and forth between a few words for the last couple of months, but I'm really excited, like ridiculously excited, about curiosity. I feel like it encompasses everything I've been working on or want to work on.


I am going to learn to build habits and establish a pattern to approach situations from a place of curiosity. Can you imagine what this will look like?! It will look like approaching parenting from a place of "what would happen if we try this or that?" Or "Son, tell me what happened."

Imagine what it will look like with work! "I wonder what would happen if I try this project or network with this person" or even "I wonder what will happen if I make editing a priority!"

Imagine what it will look like in my relationships. "Oh, interesting that you would say/think that. Tell me more. Well I think this, but I wonder what would happen if we're both right."

This is where my brain is.


This. This is why I'm so excited. This just oozes with excited energy. I am seriously so excited to see what this year will bring!


I had a life coaching session last week to set intentions for the new year. One thing she said really stuck with me. She said, "In 10 years, you want to look back on the learning opportunities rather than the 'what ifs'." This was in regards to going after dreams (editing) but also planning for financial dreams (investments and retirement). It left me with a yearning to TRY things this year.

So, sit back and watch me shine. Watch as I take the world on with curiosity. Watch as I create new habits. Watch as I cultivate the life I want - and as I figure out what that life looks like.


Thanks for joining me on this journey!
