How did 2016 fly so quickly?? It was a year filled with so many lessons, so much excitement, many failures, many firsts, so many new experiences, new milestones and memories.

I love how I finally discovered this widely spread notion of choosing a word to represent the year. A word that represents our intentions the coming year; a word to live by, a theme to define our goals, our actions, and our mindset. When I think of 2016 I think of JOY. That was the word I chose last year. I tried to infuse JOY and Happiness into every interaction (well, almost every interaction; I am human after all! ??).

As 2016 came to a close, I thought long and hard about what my word should be for 2017. What word would I live by in 2017?

The final confirmation came to me on the last morning of the year, as I sat, cuddling my children, on the kitchen bench as the sun was streaming in. SHINING IN on us. Almost like a beacon, a sign or a confirmation.


That’s it, I thought. My word for 2017 is SHINE.

We were all destined to ☀️ SHINE ☀️.  This year, it will be my mission to use this word to guide my path and shape my intentions, s I continue to serve others in support of their businesses, and their health & wellness journeys. I want to help bring out the SHINE in myself and others. What I love, is that this sentiment dovetails beautifully into JOY. Dovetails into choosing HAPPY. I believe our key focus in living and navigating this amazing life it to reach our full potential and shine with joy and happiness.

Project SHINE 2017 has officially commenced.

What is your word friends???
