Set Your Intention with a "Word of the Year"

Meet more goals and feel more energized

The trick is selecting the one word that truly represents your most important goal. Here are some examples: produce, organize, appreciate, balance, discover, fearless, flexible; and decluttering your spaces.  It’s a daily reminder of what matters to you. The one word does not cause stress.

  • There aren’t lists of items to check off.
  • There’s no guilt as the months progress.
  • There’s no time required to read through lists, adjust goals, cross off items, or add new items.

The one word needn’t require a “to do” rather the one word can invoke a “to be” where you can easily identify if you are or are not being this word.

The Art Soul Living 2021 Word of the Year is "REFINE"

I couldn’t help but snicker to myself as I reviewed my blog post from a year ago stating my purpose for the year ahead. It reminded me, we are constantly evolving, changing and refining parts of ourselves, our goals, our dreams and our businesses.

In 2020, after reading the little book, 20,000 Days and Counting by Robert D. Smith, I was inspired to sit down and write out things that give me purpose in life:

  • to live life to the fullest
  • be debt free
  • travel
  • do what I love
  • do work with a good purpose
  • help others
  • contribute
  • add value to others’ lives
  • abundant living
  • create with a purpose
  • inspire others
  • bring healing through art
  • circles
  • cool art
  • healed relationships
  • do things that matter
  • eating / health care
  • mental health
  • divorce/marriage support
  • the church
  • create a business that supports us
  • affiliate marketing
  • write a book
  • creating the life I want

Art Soul Living: REFINED 2020

My purpose is to be an influencer that opens doors for others to live a more fulfilled life – even challenge them to dream bigger, make a bigger ask. God has no limits. Break self-limiting beliefs. I am passionate about encouraging others to join me in this quest / lifestyle to live life to it's fullest. I express and lead through creating art, photography and lifestyle blogging.

Art Soul Living: REFINED 2021

I am happy to say I was able to do a lot of things I had hoped to refine in 2020. Now, in 2021, things have gradually become clearer as the rough edges have been polished a bit, but there is always work to do. I'm excited to create some concrete offerings for coaching, new artwork and several new creative art projects I am working on right now.
