Thanks to the Powersheets, I was thinking about my word for 2018 back in November, as I started to work through the powersheets prep at that time (there is a section that helps you identify your word for the coming year, based on an assessment of a number of things from the previous year). I had a number of good words in mind, and took Thanksgiving break away from normal life and work to marinate and pray on my word. Out came “reclaim“!
The background: over the past few years (as you might recall I got a huge promotion in 2015 which took away a lot of my extra free time) I’ve slowly lost a few of the things that feel important to me. Even the things that I didn’t totally lose I wanted to strengthen and lean into more in the coming year than I had. Hence- reclaim!
There are things that feel like either critical fence posts on the road to being healthy or fence posts on the road to being more “me” that I either want to put in place or strengthen. So, here are a few of them (through the powersheets prep work I identified 9 goals that all tie back to “reclaim”)-
I want to reclaim:
Other things I want to reclaim: health, healthy helping/impact on the world, my voice in specific contexts, more money saved, and more intentionality about what I eat.
I love having a specific word to meditate on and focus on throughout the year, and one month in and I feel pretty happy about the word “reclaim!” Now if only I could go on a run soon…
Now it’s your turn to share! What’s your word for 2018?
