A One Word New Year

A sick little one and the thunder rolling in the background called for a morning of cuddles in bed.  As Aspen gets older, I really do miss the stillness and cuddles she used to provide me with.  So for now, I'll take these few moments with her.

Listening to her little rattley snores, I figured it would be a great moment to jump into Erin from The Humbled Homemaker;s ebook You Retreat.   With the New Year, not only do I want to be more productive here on this little blog, I also wanted to be more present in my family (plus juggle a job, this is going to require some work.)

My goal, find my "One Word" for the New Year and develop my mission statement.

After brainstorming several ideas, I came up with a few goals.  I want to be more present in my families life.  I want to continue my growth in blogging and provided great content on my own timeline, which is something I declared last year towards the end of the year.  I want to be more purpose driven personally.

The tricky part was putting all of that into my one word.  But it finally came to me, Intentional.


What a great goal for the new year, to be intentional in all of my actions whether that be my family, my job, my side-job blog, my relationship with God.

The next thing Erin talked about in her ebook was to develop a mission statement for the new year.  With my one word Intentional in mind, I divided my mission statement into three areas.


What is your "One Word" for 2017?
