My one word for 2018

December 29, 2017

Each year I reveal a word to color the coming year that will tether both my intentions and goals while finding meaning to the next 365 days. This year  LIGHT  chose me, and am eager to embrace it with my daily routine.



  1. Something that makes things visible or affords illumination: All colors depend on light.
  1. to cause (the face, surroundings, etc.) to brighten, especially with joy
  2. to guide or conduct with a light:
  1. bring to light, to discover or reveal:
  2. come to light, to be discovered or revealed:
  3. light at the end of the tunnel, a prospect of success, relief, or redemption: 

Reflect, radiate, illuminate, spark, glow, shine, inspire, bright

My decision for the word light arrived early, entering before I even began the process of choosing as I connected the areas of transformation I seek for 2018. 

  • Light - to be the light - Inspire
  • Light - to lighten things  - minimalism
  • Light - light hearted - kindness to myself and others
  • Light - lose weight, be active - exercise and weight loss
