POWER WORD | 2019 | SACRAMENTO, CA

I’m taking a poll! All those in favor of New Year Resolutions raise your hand 🙋🏻‍♀️. Those not in favor, Party on Wayne!

For me, I’m totally partying on with Wayne!

I’ve never been big into resolutions, (like most of us, I never follow thru.) However, in 2018, I decided to give the “Word of the Year” a try. The idea behind this mantra is to choose one word that will help bring clarity toward your goals. A word that allows you fall back on during the hard times. And a word that becomes your driving force to accomplishing those goals you set for the New Year.

Before I jump right into what my word will be for 2019, first I would like to share a recap to my 2018 Power Word:

🔥I’m calling it. My power word for 2018 is DETERMINED! It's not easy raising businesses and babes. And for me, in-between all of that, I still work full time at my "day job". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

✨But, I'm determined to feed into my business. To step up my hustle and think outside of the box. To overcome the challenges of the everyday chaos. And to allow my business to flourish this year!

And boy oh boy was 2018 full of new challenges. The word DETERMINED was exactly what I needed to get through the year. It wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies. And instead of my business flourishing it was actually set on the back burner. Not in a bad way- it was necessary to allow new opportunities and abundance of challenges to come my way. Visualizing my Power Word was my driving force that allowed me to personally flourish and now I’m ready to sit down and choose my word for the New Year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When deciding my Power Word in 2018 several words just seems to stand out in my mind. Since the whole idea of it is to only choose one word- I took a moment and reflected on what it is about these words and how they impact the different areas in my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I narrowed it down to one word that fit my life the most. Looking back to this year’s Power Word, I was pretty vague on how the word impacted my life. I only had one focus and that was to see my business flourish. At the time I didn’t realize how the word would be less about achieving one goal and more about an anchor to guide you through your life, passion, personal growth for the year.

Hindsight is always 20/20, right? So, when choosing my 2019 Power Word I’m going to take a look back and reflect on the past year. This will help give me some insight to where I want to go for the new year in 2019.

Alight Y’all it’s time to share my Power Word for 2019. Because we all know it ain’t true until we write it down!🔥STRENGTH

This year’s focus is on strength: physically, mentally, and heck even spiritually.

Over the past several years, my physical strength has taken a major toll. My clothes aren’t fitting the same, I feel sooo sluggish, and mentally drained. I’ve known it for awhile but there needs to be a change. What I was doing or lack of doing just isn’t cutting it anymore. With all of that combined can make one absolutely miserable.

So, the middle of November I made a phone call and signed up for a personal trainer. Because sometimes, the strongest thing you can do is to ask for help! I was tired of tearing up my body and not seeing any positive results. Plus, I knew I’m going to need the extra accountability to get through the weeks I want to quit. ⠀⠀

Just a few weeks later I knew my Power Word for 2019 would have be strength. The word was blaring at me from rooftop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is going to be way more than a weight loss or fitness journey. This is not only about feeling physically stronger but, building a stronger version of me from the inside out.
