What’s your word for 2018?


Cruising right along this week! Welcome to the first Thoughtful Thursday, where I’ll be sharing a short & sweet post about something on my mind or something of interest lately.  As we’re still in the fresh energy of the New Year, I wanted to share my personal word choice for 2018. Each year I like to select a word or phrase that matches some of my goals or helps me set an intention for the upcoming seasons, such as Refine, Create, or Simplify. This year I’ve kept things simple, in choosing a short and direct word of action: Do.

I want year full of doing things: growing my business, biking, practicing more yoga more regularly, traveling, making art, learning to cook and learning to bake, reading, paddle boarding, getting back into running, organizing my life better, meeting new people, spending more time on the river, kayaking, studying the French language, writing, and adventuring with John (to name a few of many hopes & goals!).


It’s not all going to happen overnight, or not all at once, but with small, daily efforts, and the simple of acting of doing (rather than planning or procrastinating) I think 2018 will be quite the year!


What about you? Do you have a word or phrase set for 2018? I’d love to hear about it! Let me know in the comments below or continue the conversation over on Instagram @thebiglakemi.
