One Word to Guide Your Whole Year

What is your Word of the Year for 2019? It’s such a personal decision, but I’d love to help you showcase it with a custom printable for your planner, journal or as a print worthy of framing.  Pick a design you love. Tell me your word and what it means to you, and I’ll customize the print for you. Let’s start playing!

Choosing a single word to shape your entire year is a concept I first began in 2007 – way back when Ali Edwards was the only one talking about it (here’s a link to that One Little Word blog post in 2007 that got me hooked!).  Her words in that article back then still ring true whenever I’m choosing my new word:

…a word to focus on, mediate on, and reflect upon as I go about my daily life. 

Nowadays it’s the hot new buzzword (buzzphrase?) and everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and I’m so excited! If this is your first time choosing a word – hold on tight! I truly believe this is going to change your life! If you’re like me and have been choosing a word for many years – I’d love to hear your story and how this practice has impacted your life, your goals, and your well-being. 

I am so passionate about choosing a single word to guide my goals, actions, mindset, and decisions throughout an entire year and now I’m thrilled to be sharing that experience with you. The printable designs I’ve created can all be customized with your own word – or you can choose one of the examples I’ve already researched. 

 

Let me Personalizing your Word

I’m the biggest nerd ever… but I can’t even express to you how excited I am about this! The chance to help others more fully embrace a word that will guide their lives for the whole year is a huge honor. Plus, this gives me an opportunity to combine all the things I love most in life: playing with stationery, being artsy, helping people achieve their goals. I’m totally in my nerdy happy place!

So how does this customization work, anyway? Oh! Thanks for asking!  First, you need to choose your word. Sometimes that’s the hardest part. If you need help (or ideas), I’ve written about my process of choosing a single word each year and some easy steps to follow as you make your choice. Once you know your word… the rest is easy!

  1. Choose your favorite design below
  2. Place your order and tell me your word 
  3. Wait with bated breath (it won’t be long, promise!)
  4. Receive your Custom “Word of the Year” Printable by email.
  5. Print. Love. Share. Have an amazing year! 

Need help with your word?

I’ve written a blog post about how I choose my word each year. Maybe my technique can help you pick yours. I’ve also included a list of all the words shown below in the examples so you can easily scan through ideas. Head over to “How to Choose a Word of the Year” on the blog.

Family & Friends

My family is a motley crew of oddballs. Yep, I said it! But I love them all and everyone brings a unique and adorable experience to family gatherings. This design reminds me that we might all be different, but we’re all a valuable part of the family and once we get together we’re kind of awesome.

The font used for your Word has a funky rubber-stamped look to match the fun characters along the bottom. This design gives you enough space to include a few lines about what your word means to you, or specific goals you want to achieve this year. Pick a favorite quote to include too.

Or if you prefer just the blank design with no text, that’s possible too.

Nature’s Beauty

I feel most at peace when I’m outside enjoying the amazing beauty of nature. My most favorite time of the year is the early moments of spring when the leaves on the trees are just beginning to peek their new faces out from the buds and reach toward the sun. The vibrant verdant green of new growth that reminds us that the long cold winter is over and warmth and sunshine have arrived. 

There are four design options with the Nature’s Beauty printable – choose the one that speaks to you the most. But as you choose keep in mind that if your Word of the Year has a lot of letters, then the “banner” or “corners” design is best for fitting more letters in the space.  Or if you prefer just the blank design with no text, that’s possible too.

Design Options

  • Hexagon
  • Circle
  • Two corners
  • Center banner

Watercolor Mandala

Mandalas have always been a symbol of meditation, inner peace, and focus for me. Not only do I love to draw them freehand, but I’ve got several adult coloring books filled with various designs and I can spend a lazy afternoon relaxing while coloring the intricate details.

The traditional meaning of mandala is that it’s a symbol of a dream and represents the search for completeness or self-unity. A quest for wholeness and peace. Pair this powerful symbol with the delicate watercolor background and you have the perfect way to showcase the Word of the Year you’ve chosen. Or if you prefer just the blank design with no text, that’s possible too.

  • Purple

Flower Garden

The middle of summer is such a beautiful time of the year. The flowers are blooming wildly and the fragrance of their perfume gives the warm night air a regalness that is present at no other time of the year. It’s as if Mother Nature herself has crafted the most exquisite bouquet for her own enjoyment and we’re just mere observers of her magnificence of the display.

With different color options of this design, you can pick the one that best fits your Word of the Year. Some words have a “feeling” about them and isn’t it amazing that color carries meaning too? Pair the right word with the right color and you have a powerful message to carry you through the year. Personalize your print or if you prefer just the blank design with no text, that’s possible too.

Color Options

  • Sunshine Yellow
  • Regal Purple
  • Sassy Pink
