Word of the Year 2019: Thrive

For the last couple of years I have felt like I've been stuck just getting through life. I don't want to call it survival mode, even though some days that's exactly what it was, because it wasn't all just survival. I just don't feel like I've been living as well as I could.

This year I plan to be more intentional with how I use my time. I want to leave blank spaces and not be busy all the time. I want to work on getting enough sleep and drinking enough water. I want to go on more adventures, and spend less money on stuff.

I want to take a risk. I don't know what that will look like yet, but I have been craving change in a really deep way that I can only imagine will require me to do something scary as fuck, so I'm trying to prepare myself for that.

I am not going to make my annual to do lists, or set any specific goals right now. I just want to focus on taking up the time and space I need to be me, and as much as possible, fill my time with things that make me feel good to be alive.

Do you choose a word for the year? If so, what is your word this year? What are you planning to do more or less of in 2019? Let us know in the comments. 


  1. You go girl! I think you picked a good word.

    I don’t really do New Years resolutions. My current goals are to read more and stash busting (no buying new craft stuff). Those bars were set pretty low so I’ve been doing pretty good so far.

    For short-term while it’s nice out, being outside as much as possible and doing outside family stuff. :)
