If you're not familiar with the "one word" concept, it's basically boiling down your dreams, goals, and intentions for the next year to one single word. It's setting your intention and focus for the upcoming year with one word.
I kind of love the concept.
Last year my word was "consistent". I have to say it was a great pick and I did a pretty good job of keeping that focus throughout the year.
I made quite a bit of progress on my goals, particularly my fitness and weight loss goals. I started 2017 at 222 lbs and I am ending the year at 197. Not too shabby.
OK, I only go deep down the rabbit hole of my life about once a year here on FitViews. I guess this shall be THAT post. If you just want keto recipes, fitness, and the like, click away, click away. 2017 was a rough year.
But if you're a reader friend interested in how my year really went, read on...
2017 was a really hard year for me. My parents had some health issues. Hubby got a job after being out of work for three months, but then changed jobs again. (He has an amazing job now though, hallelujah).
Then, October 1 my older brother was killed.
I was broken. Wrecked. Completely and utterly destroyed.
I won't go into all of that further, but I will share what I come away from 2017 knowing:
Life is short. LIVE your dreams.
I head into 2018 with a driving passion to not spend one more second doing or being anything I don't want. On the flip side, I refuse to spend one more second NOT doing or being what I want.
In that, I've decided 2018 shall be my year of flinging things up on the wall and seeing what sticks. In the past, I've been in this weird state of having several dreams and directions I contemplated, but in my indecisiveness, I did none of them. Not well at least and mostly not at all.
This year I am all-in. I'm all. In. One dream at a time. We shall see what sticks.
My word for 2018:
I want to thank all of you who have read FitViews, watched my YouTube channel, or friended me on social media over the years. New and old friends, I appreciate each and every one of you. 2018 will bring lots of new and exciting projects coming from me on several platforms. I hope you'll continue to follow along.
What's your 2018 one-word? I would really love to hear yours in the comments below.
Bring on 2018 and a turning of the page.
