I took a break last week from my blogging and my writing. I settled in on vacation with my family and tried to be present for all of it.
And you know what? It was amazing. It was the epitome of the wonder I am seeking year long.
This was last week. Beautiful beach. Sea air. Colder but still majestic. Today? I sit staring out at the first full day of spring- watching the skies dump huge amounts of snow for hours upon hours.
I see the wonder in both. I am so lucky!
The point of choosing a word is so you can have focus. So you can enhance your life and hopefully other’s lives. I feel blessed because I am finding the wonder in each thing. And it is such an amazing quest to be on.
Dont misunderstand me; not everything is perfect or without stress sometimes- but this word is leading me intentionally to seek the joy; the wonder.
My word for 2018 is Wonder. My word I pick is always intentional and thoughtful. I try my best to map out the year I want to have, the year I envision and then I set out to pick the word that will best help me stay my course.

I want to see the world through a different lens, perhaps a psychedelic one. I want to see the good in all. I want to feel that glimmer of extraordinary in everything. I want to make intentional choices for myself that bring me wondrous things. I want to inspire others to seek their own wonders. That was my plan. It most certainly still is.
But somehow, it is nearly March. How is that possible? Is anyone else shocked by this?
I feel in times such as these, when we have fabulous notions and ideas but we let time slip by (or rather it squeaks by on its own), the best plan of action is a PLAN OF ACTION! A purposeful intention that is also a regimented intention.
I vow to check in here each week, we’ll say Wednesdays- I call them:
When I write this little blog of mine, in my little space on the internet- I will report to you the wonder I have seen, felt, tasted and discovered. I challenge you all to go find wonderful things as well.
