Whatever your personal challenge may be, it is hope that jumps to your rescue and provides you with the courage to move forward.

Joy begins with gratitude – being thankful for all you are and all you have. Joy comes from deep within your soul.

Word of the Year for 2020
Your Amazing Year!
We’ve shifted from New Year’s Resolutions in years gone by to claiming a Word of the Year. It has become a way for you to focus all of your energies by reminding yourself of your chosen word.
Here are the words I have used the past few years. I can see what was going on in my world that year and remember why I chose these special words.
2016 – Purge
2017 – Self-love
2018 – Transition
2019 – Focus
For 2020, my word is BALANCE.
I have a lot of pots on the fire this year, so to speak. I need to BALANCE business, passion, home, family, and friends or I’ll have a bonfire on my hands.
