Every year I choose ONE WORD as the theme of my entire year. I got the idea from 'My One Word' which is so brilliant because my 'one word' fuels every goal I have for 2018. I highly recommend going and picking your word (and no this is not sponsored) as the steps are laid out for you! And thank you to Jason Helveston (Pastor at my church & incredible author of 'Tell Me Everything') for sharing about My One Word on your website where I first learned of the concept.
My One Word replaces broken promises with a vision for real change. When you choose a single word, you have a clarity and focus. You are moving toward the future rather than swearing off the past.
My one word for 2018 is NOURISH: Nourishing my relationship w/ God - Eating nourishing foods - nourishing my body via healing - nourishing conversations - only being involved & trusting in relationships that are nourishing - nourishing what makes me feel alive - nourishing others via service.
The definition of nourishing is.... to supply with what is necessary for life, health, and growth - to cherish, foster, keep alive - to strengthen, build up, or promote.
The word 'Nourish' first spoke to me when I saw that MindBodyGreen is rolling out a 'Nourishing New Year Program' . I quickly signed up and encourage you to too. I feel that MindBodyGreen is 'always' on the cutting edge of wellness and the leader in wellness across the country.
As I followed the steps for picking my word, every single thought and note I would journal led to....NOURISH. And choosing NOURISH means a complete overhaul of.....well, my entire life. The authors of 'one word' - Mike & Rachel - said 'Don’t be surprised if living out your “one word” feels unnatural and awkward at first. Remember, the reason you want to change is due to the fact that this godly characteristic is not currently present in your day-to-day life. Give it time and stay with it'.
So, what will be your own word in 2018?
