Happy New Year Pretties,
I hope everyone was able to take some time off during the holiday season to rest your mind and your body. It is another year and I am ready to begin anew. I have picked a word of the year before, read about last year’s word here. I chose intentional because I want to achieve some specific goals that require laser focus. So I need to take actionable steps that will lead to the fulfillment of these goals.
Three Ways to Live Intentionally
1 – Make a plan, write it down. You cannot be intentional on nothingness – so decide what it is you want and put it to paper.
2 – Be flexible. Let’s face it, life happens but we have to stay focused on our goals. When an obstacle surfaces, be flexible enough to re-route so you remain intentional.
3 – Give it time. Moving in an intentional manner takes time. Do not get impatient and take an action that isn’t intentional because you want to meet a deadline of some sort. Stop and regroup but still keep your intentional mindset.
I am ready to excel in 2017, lots of new things planned, including celebrating a big blog anniversary.
Do you have a word for 2017? Do share!!

Happy New Year!!! That’s a great word. Instead of resolutions or goals this year I have intentions. One of which is to enjoy every day ☺

Yes Sonya I’m living on purpose in 2017!
Good choice of words for 2017 if I had to choose mine would be Patience. Sometimes in life we need to remind ourselves how to stay calm in certain situations.

I agree Debyonce, sometimes being still is the best move.
love these pointers.. especially the “be flexible” one.
we are all hard on ourselves when we cant keep up with resolutions..
wishing you a joyous new year – xx

Happy New Year Amber, have a great year!
Patience with positivity. I need to slow down and take it one day at a time and not try to do it all quickly because it’s frustrating.
Happy New Year New You sis!

Yes Antionette, yes let everything take its time.
Great word. I love that you pointed out how living withintention doesn’t mean being inflexible – just the opposite! Happy 2017 Robin!

Hi Beckey, yes being too rigid can derail you plan. Have a great year!
Happy New Year Girl!!! My word, well words is Believe in Myself. Last year at the beginning of the year I kept doubting myself thinking that blogging full-time would not work for me and I would fail. My anxiety was getting really bad, but I kept reminding myself that I’ve come a long way, and continue to keep pursuing my dreams.
2017 will be your year girl! OWN IT!!!

Oh no girl, you inspire so much! You stepped out on faith and it’s working – and you have more time with family! You are winning cause you believe in yourself!
