Go where it takes you.
Be who it makes you.
Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap that long list of goals you won’t remember a few weeks from now anyway!
Choose just one word.
One word you can focus on every day, all year long… One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live.
It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, but also you. It will become the compass that directs your decisions and guides your steps.
Discover the big impact one word can make.
One word. 365 days. A changed life.
Choose your word for 2018 and sign up.
It’s that simple.
One Word 365 is more than a new way to approach resolutions. It’s a global tribe committed to journeying together and living intentionally.
You can connect with others who have chosen the same word or live in your area. Together, we can inspire and challenge each other to live purposefully all year long.
The updated site for 2018 is in the works, and should be done by the end of the week thanks to the amazing team at Cross & Crown! (If you need design work done, make them your first stop. I promise they’ll be your last!)
In the meantime, we’ve still got 4 weeks left to lean into our 2017 words… I have to keep reminding myself that the point wasn’t to “arrive”. I sit here thinking about my word — unapologetic — and I’m acutely aware of all the ways I have yet to grow into it. And I have to give myself permission to not have achieved some impossible state of unapologetic nirvana by now…. Because I know it’s about the journey, the process… And that it’s one that is ongoing, intentionally begun this year but never-ending…
The perfectionist in me wants to feel like I’ve succeeded in some tangible way, and so this exercise — even 8 years in — is ridiculously challenging for me…
I am ever in-process.
Ever growing, moving, changing, evolving, becoming.
And that is okay.
That. Is. Okay.
I have to force myself to think of all the ways I have leaned into my word. I most definitely lived more unapologetically than I ever have in my life. I stood up for myself in bold, new ways; I decreased my unnecessary use of the word “sorry”; I spoke my truth… So while I’m not ready to run a victory lap, I do see the ways I’ve allowed my word to shape me over the past year. And I know it will continue to shape me still.
How are you feeling about your word and your journey as 2017 winds down? I’d love to hear some of your thoughts before we shift gears into the new year…
