My “Word of the Year” Printable

Every year I’ve watched as January rolls around and friends and family call out their word of the year to give them focus and direction for the New Year. Rather than spit out a list of goals, you can simplify and find one word that will inspire, motivate, and uplift you for what you’re hoping to achieve or focus on for the new year.

I have found that to really make a change, you need constant reminders – something you can see daily. With that in mind, I’m sharing this cute printable, My Word of the Year!

You can print, frame, and then use a dry erase marker to fill in the blank with your inspirational word for the year. Best of all, you can reuse the printable year after year.

I find that setting a specific goal and not making it too complicated makes it easier to keep on your mind and evaluate your progress through the year.

Hi Janel, I found your blog on Rose Mary Lane this morning. Great blog and love your post, my word for this year is "Steadfast", maybe slow like a turtle, and hopefully moving forward with new challenges and goals!

I would like to invite you to share your post on my Friday Features over at Oh My Heartsie Girl. We are a weekly linkup with lots of fun blogs that share each week.

Hope to see you there!! Karren Oh My Heartsie Girl
