In recent years a popular trend has been to choose a guiding WORD that you will you use as your mantra, your focus, your theme or your guide for the upcoming/ new year.  Do you have a guiding word for 2018?

The idea is that this one word will be something that is specific, authentic, and important to you! Your guiding  WORD is something you can hold on to and focus on to achieve your goals for the upcoming/new year.  What is your guiding word for 2018?

My word for 2018 is INTENTION.  It is defined as “a thing intended, an aim, or plan.”  My focus will be to plan, and take action in a deliberate and intentional way. In this video, I share how you can choose your guiding word. Enjoy!
