Do you have a word for your year 2021? Is it just me or does it seem that this practice has exploded this year? I think it’s great.

We did this a few years back and since the first few days of 2021 seem to be full of optimism I was feeling the vibe to bring it back. We discussed it as a family what our word/s for the year will be. Our Mantra for the year. A sort of affirmation that will guide and motivate us throughout the year.

As we discussed it, everyone had so many wonderful, crazy and silly ideas but the youngest (who is 6) said FIRE POWER and we all agreed. What was surprising to me was that everyone was onboard. For the first time, it wasn’t just something that Mom wanted to do. My kids are age 6, 8, and 10. They all have their own goals for the year which is really cute but I am here to honor that with them.

Fire Power. We all have a fire within, right? What do we need when we feel stuck? I envision our hearts burning bright with the flame growing big with each inhale we take. I don’t know. We will probably be coming up with all sorts of ways FIRE POWER relates to a situation throughout the year. The best thing is that we are doing it as a family.

I’ll let you know how this plays out throughout the year. My son has already used it to describe his farts, my husband used it whilst we were exercising which cracked me up. I think we are gonna have a lot of fun with these words this year.

Have you picked out a word or phrase for this year?
