Every January I pick a word that is my guide and muse for the year ahead and this year is no exception. I’ve learned and grown though my words in the past and this year decided to really dig in and choose two. One for my life and one for my business. I’m so excited to see what goodness this new year will bring!
For my personal growth this year and my family, I chose the word Home.
Noun: the place in which one’s domestic affections are centered / Adverb: deep, to the heart
To bring focus back to our home. Taking moments from the busy go, go , go of our lives to center ourselves in our soft place to land. To get serious about simplifying our home and clearing out the clutter to make room for only the things that we love and are useful to us. To cook meals that not only bring us to the table and in each others company but that fuel us with simple, real foods. To remember that I also reside in my body and it’s time to cherish it and treat it as I do my home, with care and love. I want to gather more in our home with those whose company we enjoy, with loved ones and new friends. I want our home to be filled with God’s grace, love and truly be a place of quiet retreat as well as a place for boisterous celebration. I’m excited to get back to the basics and slow living seems a sweet goal right now.
This year for the first time I wanted to have a separate word to be my focal point and goal for the year. For this I chose, Flourish.
Verb: to be in a vigorous state; thrive, to be in its or in one’s prime, to be successful; prosper, to grow luxuriantly, or thrive in growth, as a plant
Last year I felt like I began to hit my stride in many ways with Little Lotti. At years end I launched a second brand(more on that next post). I learned a ton and grew in many ways. This year I’ve taken some big leaps into opportunities that, to be honest, scare me and that is so exciting! I’m ready to dig in and watch this little business of mine bloom.
Do you choose a word of the year? If so, tell me about it in the comments!
