Are you ready to pick a word of the year that will ACTUALLY stick with you and make a difference in your life?

Are you ready to start the year with real HOPE and INTENTION?

I'm sure you have heard all about choosing a word of the year, maybe you've tried in years past - but do you find yourself thinking, how can a single word actually make a real difference in my life???

Can you imagine how it would feel to get to the end of the year with zero frustration or shame over broken resolutions? Can you imagine feeling nothing but pride and gratitude because you set yourself up for the kind of personal growth that can shift and grow, and handle whatever life throws at you??

THAT is the beauty of choosing a truly wholehearted word of the year!

A final note from Shawna:

Choosing a word of the year has really been one of the most life-changing practices for me. Having a word to focus on and challenge yourself with for an entire year gives you so much opportunity to move away from the “pass/fail” sense of resolutions and instead it offers you the type of goal and vision that can truly evolve with you.

After the past few years, we all know the way the unexpected can hit, and I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that my word of the year has given me more flexibility, more encouragement, and more hope than any other new years practice I've ever started.

I still carry with me the things I've learned with each word I've chosen. Every year and every word has empowered me for the next. They all have become friends to me, I really can’t imagine entering a future year without picking a new word to focus on!

I truly hope you will join me on this journey! Your word is waiting for you! Let me help you find it, and then LIVE it!

I can't wait to get started!
