Check In: Day 280

Week 40: The guiding word I chose for 2020, well before Covid-19 was even thought of here, was breathe. Little did I know how important that word would become to us. I haven’t used it as much as I have as some of my other guiding words in the past but it was none the less important at different points to pull it out and remember to breathe with my whole body. Too often I found myself holding my breath out of fear or anxiety. Breathe.

As I look to the next year I am thinking of a word that may direct my thoughts towards rebirth or growth. Maybe perseverance, letting-go, courage, or responsibility. I am looking to rebuild my travel business from the ground up after 2020 basically shut most travel in the United States down. I specialize in Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orland, and family travels but I was expanding into cruises and booked my first group of cruisers to Russia, Germany, and Denmark. They have now moved their cruise out to 2022 due to cancellations and difficulties in life. I am also looking to continue to expand this blog. I have had some nice opportunities come my way recently that may lead to some new fun collaborations. This next year will only tell.

Do you choose a guiding word for your year? Have chosen a new one for 2021?

      I find it focuses my thoughts and intentions better than a whole string of resolutions or I wish I coulds.


  2. Thanks for the update, Marci. I don’t have a guiding word but I am interested in yours.

  3. Mine is usually peace of mind (I know, that’s three words). Even before the pandemic and for several years now. I don’t feel like I have enough of it, I guess.

    Also trying to get my newly-designed website off the ground. Good look with your goals!
