Intentional living is the art of making our own choices before others’ choices make us. — Richie Norton
As you all know, my word for 2019 – focus – made a huge impact on my life. I do not want to lose that in 2020, so I spent a good bit of time thinking about where I wanted to go.
Words like purpose and intention kept turning up in the most curious ways. I spent some time “trying on” these words and as I began to plan where I wanted to go in 2020, it became clear that intentional was the path I wanted to travel.
Miriam-Webster defines intentional as something “done by intention or design.”
I have spent a year honing my focus and I have some good habits to show for it! This year I plan to be more intentional in all things…making, reading, and yes… living! And I am very excited to embark on this new journey – a journey of my own making!
Finally, I would like to take a moment to thank Juliann for her brilliant hosting this year! Without her initiative, I am not sure that I would have had as much success this year as I did!

Great choice Kat to follow Focus!
Happy New Year!
So many good words and I just live how we each need something different from them. I also like the theme that is emerging where our 2019 words are folding into our 2020 words. Thanks for joining me.
You’re following in my footsteps, Kat! 🙂 My “focus” year led me to an “intention” year, too. I hope you get as much out of that 1-2 combo as I did!
ooohhh, it’s gonna be a good one, Kat!
Wonderful! My 2019 word is leading me towards focus (and I suspect focus will lead me to intention, but I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself!) Wishing you a wonderful 2020 with Intention!
That’s a great word, and one that requires one to slow down and be purposeful-a good reminder.
You “done good!” and your 2020 choice is perfect! So looking ofrward to sharing your journey.
An excellent choice! Being intentional certainly requires focus and thought, so I think this year’s word will flow very nicely into next.
I love it! I can’t wait to see how this impacts your year!
Sounds like you’ve chosen another great word. I hope it brings you great things.
I do love your word for the year!
Intentional is such an excellent word for the year. How can it not have a positive impact on you?
Focus made a difference in your year and I don’t think intention will be far behind. Happy New Word, Happy New Year.
