Good morning Partners!

Happy New Year!!!

Can you believe it is 2020?! Not only do we have a brand New Year ahead of us … we have a NEW DECADE!

We’ve said goodbye to 2019, and we’re launching into 2020 with fresh energy. This is YOUR YEAR.  That’s why I have something REALLY fun today, to help you celebrate!

Here’s an amazing exercise that can set the tone for your entire YEAR … it’s truly inspiring!

Take a few minutes (or maybe even a whole day) to think about how you really want to live this year …

What word describes how you want to feel in 2020?

Some possible words might come to mind as you consider all this:
Strong – Joyful – Connected – Resilient – Brave – Renewed – Grateful – Faithful – Peaceful – Loving – Inspiring – Confident – Present … there seriously are so many great choices!

Your job is to pick JUST ONE WORD that resonates with you, and make it your mantra for the year!

This word should be unique to YOU.  It should ignite an emotion within you – inspiration, relief, clarity – because of the meaning it carries for you.  Let this word fuel your thoughts and actions every single day.

It’s incredible how ONE WORD can give a specific intention to everything you do. This will help you be more present and “in the moment” as the year throws curve balls your way.

Tips:
● Look at your word first thing when you wake up in the morning, and when you go to sleep at night.
● Post it on your desk.
● Write it on your mirror (whiteboard marker works great)
● Make it your screensaver (on your phone & computer!)
● Repeat it a couple times a day.
● This habit can fall by the wayside after a few days, so keep those reminders posted!

Here’s my word: Gratitude.

I often talk about how important it is to express gratitude daily but common sense isn’t always common practice.  So, I’ve made this my word for the year AND established a daily email reminder to set my intention and gratitude for the day and to say a prayer in my heart for how much it means to me to have in my life (the person, event, chance meeting, emotion, etc.)

One reason this is such an effective practice is that it’s SIMPLE.

It’s JUST ONE WORD.

Once you choose your word, I’d love for you to share that with me! Leave a comment below and let me know what your word is!

Let’s make 2020 a year to remember.  Much love!!

Live Stronger For Today,
