My Theme of the Year: 2019

I need to remind myself that 2018 was not a wash, but considering that I don’t remember what my word/theme for this past year was, and everything fell apart with my “live my best life” plan in April, 2019 needs to be a fresh start.

I am very excited for my word of the year, as inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s One Word Theme of the Year. I love keeping this close to me, and in 2017, I even had an ornament made marking the year. I grew so much that year, and the theme of “Grow” gave me something to look to.

My theme for 2019 though, is just as abstract, and I hope, will make for a good year.

My word for 2019 is: Move.

I mentioned last year that I had wanted to move out of my current living situation, and unfortunately, moving hasn’t happened…yet. It is going to happen this year. I can feel it in my bones.

What else I can feel on my bones and joints is the 15 pounds I gained stress eating my way from May to September of 2018. It’s been a tough year work wise, and as a result, I just want to move and work out and do things that are good for my body and make me feel good inside and out. I am also in need of moving forward. I have felt a little stuck life wise with career and everything, and I just want to make sure that I MOVE forward.

Ultimately, my life needs to move. I need to move. And I want to be reminded of this daily.

Here’s what I’m using to track my theme of 2019:

This blank bullet journal that is in a bright color:


These adorable kitty pens that are motivating so much of my note taking:

And of course, this book, Your Best Year Ever, by Michael Hyatt, which is rocking my world.

  1. Having a theme of the year is such a great idea. If I had to choose a word to represent my year it would be grow. I have confined myself to my comfortable little bubble of life and have decided it’s time to expand. I hope you are able to follow through with your theme. Good luck and Happy New Tear!
