Throw away the New Year’s Resolutions, why bother. Only 8% of people who make resolutions keep them and see them through. Mimi and I are foregoing this tradition and instead, keeping up with one of our newer traditions that we want to share with you and hopefully have you adopt, choosing a word of the year.
This week, we’re going to help you choose YOUR word of the year!
The word of the year as a north star, your guiding light for how you want to show up and live your life. It really is about becoming intentional and deliberate about the choices you make based on your word.
LIVING INTENTIONALLY: “Gen X Women aren’t intentional enough in our world, in our life in deciding what we want. It’s about deciding how you want to show up and what you want your life to look like. Too often, as Gen X women, we let life unfold. We do what we’ve always done, even if it doesn’t make us happy.”
REEVALUATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH TIME: “Take your time choosing the word of the year, don’t rush. Time is fluid, it is what you make it.”
PUT IT INTO THE WORLD: “When you embody your word of the year the universe starts to align all of these things for you.”
Mimi said, "I take my word of the year seriously. I journal and every morning I ask myself how I want to show up for the things I have planned for the day. “
Submit Your Word of the Year!
We’re going to do something interesting and different. Ladies, after you’ve decided on YOUR word of the year, we want you to email us and let us know.

And to encourage participation, we are giving away a copy of the book Brave Enough by Cheryl Strand to the most creative word of the year! This book is right in alignment with the idea of ‘word of the year’ it’s empowering and inspiring. It’s a book you can keep on your nightstand to read a page randomly when you feel like it.
