Setting a Word of the Year

Choosing a word to set your intentions for the year is an incredibly powerful thing. It gives purpose to your actions and goals. I wanted to choose a word before the new year, but nothing came to me. Everything I thought of felt so grandiose and intangible. Fleeting feelings. Instagram mantras. Words without meaning.

Then, as I was reading a book, a word literally jumped off the page and hit me. Stunned me. Caught my breath.


It’s a verb. Active. It’s a command. It’s a need. It’s a driving force. It’s quantifiable. I can make this real. I can make anything real. Below lie some of the ways I’ll embody Make this year. I’ve printed this for my planner and mirror so it’s ever present wherever I am.

What word will you embody?
