Your Word. Your Year

Your Word. Your Year

Every year, I pick one word that becomes my theme for the year.

This one word represents what I want to focus on. In previous years it’s been freedom, growth, clarity and focus.

You’d think one measly word wouldn’t make much of a difference to your life, but I have to tell you….it’s a game changer!

Whenever you’re off track, it helps you come back to focus in on what’s important, what matters, and what you really want out of your year.

In this episode I reveal:

  • My word for 2018 (and why people laughed at it)
  • My new quest to vlog like a boss
  • A great audio and book resource I’m using to learn to vlog like a boss
  • Why this is the year to OWN it (and put on your grown up panties)

Listen and learn my friend….or just be entertained.

Key resources to check out:



  • Hi Natalie, as you know my word this year is JOY!
    Doing more of what brings me joy, having more joy bubble up and overflow to others, saying yes to opportunities that bring me joy (and a polite no to those that don’t)
    Love having a word for the year.
    Thanks for sharing yours.
    To a fearless joy-filled year ahead!
    xx Lauren

    • And I love JOY so much. I will be really intrigued to see how much it guides your decisions and experiences this year and how you feel at the end of 2018 having chosen it. x

  • The last couple of years I have chosen a guiding word for the year instead of making resolutions & I love it! The word I have chosen for 2018 is VISIBLE. Last year was all about LOVE for myself. Every thing I did, all the decisions I made, came from a place of love for myself. Visible is the natural step after that. I am ready to start my own freedom based business as a holistic health coach this year (soon!) and to take the next steps towards living MY dream life. I am ready to be truly seen both online and offline,. I am ready to be vulnerable and to not hide anymore. To step out from the shadows. First step was to buy myself the perfect red listick that I now wear every day & loving it! 🙂 Soooo incredibly excited for this year!
    Thanks Natalie for all the inspiration!

    • That is such a brilliant word for all you want to do this year. I can’t wait to check back in with you mid year to see how this is working for you. Here’s to your most visible self! x

  • Hi Natalie,

    My word is:

    settle or find a solution to (a problem or contentious matter).
    “the firm aims to resolve problems within 30 days”
    synonyms: settle, sort out, solve, find a solution to, find an answer to, fix, work out, straighten out, deal with, put right, set right, put to rights, rectify, iron out, reconcile; More
    decide firmly on a course of action.
    “she resolved to ring Dana as soon as she got home”
    synonyms: determine, decide, make up one’s mind, take a decision, reach a decision, conclude, come to the conclusion; settle on a plan of action
    “Charity resolved not to think about him any longer”
    firm determination to do something.
    “she received information that strengthened her resolve”
    synonyms: determination, resolution, firmness of purpose, fixity of purpose, purpose, purposefulness, resoluteness, single-mindedness, strength of will, strength of character, will power, firmness, intentness, decision, decidedness;

    So, after 25 years or so of beating around the bush, avoiding, running, hiding from what I really want to do with my life, I resolve to find a solution to make what I want to do happen, decide firmly on a course of action to achieve it and have firm determination to achieve it.

    It was hard to choose between resolve and britches (cause last year I had to put on my big girl britches to get to this point) and britches is still surrounding me this year. More than one word, but maybe 2018 is the year I resolve to constantly wear my big girl britches. Had to laugh when I finally saw (in April) your comment Natalie, referring to just that. Yet another confirmation.

    Here’s to an amazing year for all of us!
