My Word + Goals for 2018

04F13CD6-28D1-4645-9E0A-5D929422175E.JPGThe week after Christmas is a magical time. It’s a time to reflect on all that’s taken place over the past year, the good, the bad, as well as dream about what you’d like the next year to look like.

I believe the word God has given me for this coming year is, “Gratitude.” Gratitude for the people in my life, where I’m at in my career, for my physical health, for my many blessings (rather than wishing I had more), and for a God I can truly trust when I don’t have a clue. I believe practicing an attitude of gratitude and contentment can transform one’s life. I’m excited to see how this intentional focus on gratitude brings more peace in the coming year.

Writing out lists, planning, and making goals is so therapeutic for me, so I am PUMPED to share my goals for 2018! ❤
