2020 Word of the Year

I stopped making resolutions years ago. Instead, I find it much more productive to set an intention. I choose a word I want to embody or theme my year around. This year, it’s liberate.

I’ve always been comfortable in my pain with a habit of holding onto situations or relationships that are wrong for me because it’s familiar. Safer than venturing into the unknown. But this year, no more waiting for change that won’t come. No more hoping for things to fix themselves. It’s time to liberate myself from my darkness.

I’m liberating myself from a body I’m uncomfortable in by challenging myself to run every day.

I’m no longer holding myself hostage in other people’s expectations.

No more shackling myself to unhappy, unhealthy relationships.

I’m done mentally and emotionally imprisoning myself in my past.

What word or idea will you embody this year?
