Word Of The Year | 2018

Welcome back friends, hope you all have had wonderful welcoming days into the new year so far.  

We have and having taken a little break from here was hard, but I'm glad I did, it was much needed.

The last couple of years, I've noticed that giving yourself a "word" for the new year, sorta keeps you motivated to accomplish at least one thing in the new year, not necessarily a goal or a resolution but just a word of motivation and inspiration.

Last year's word was patience and though I feel it did motivate me to be so, its definitely not one of my best virtues. 

This year my 2018 word is ....

successfully bring about or reach (a desired objective, level, or result) by effort, skill, or courage.

Not necessarily meaning that I will have to achieve projects per say, but accomplishing more of what I seek to pursuit in my life and through my blog.  Achieve more for me, learn more, seek more, continue reaching my goals and to finish more of whatever I start.  

Isn't it the best feeling when you start something and seeing the end result?  

Twenty Seventeen was a great year and one that has pushed me to be more outgoing and put myself out there more than I have previously.  I have plenty of fears believe me, especially because I have always been a procrastinator and shy person, socially awkward and my anxiety and insomnia is never predictable.  I can say its also something that I've thankfully have been able to contain in the last year and hope that it only continues to get better.

I'm sure many of you can relate or understand where I come from, but none the less, I don't want to let that stop me from pushing the envelope, working harder and focusing on me for my well being is key.

I have plenty to be thankful for and working with more brands last year really opened doors for me, including having been part of such a great group of creatives, through the 2017 Blog Squad with Country Chic Paint.  Not sure what the future holds for me and CCP but I will definitely continue to be a big fan and share many more projects with their products.

This blogosphere is huge but like for many of you, for me this is more than just a passion its also an outlet for me as I've mentioned to you guys before.  And now I hope to also make a career out of it and help support my family through this amazing creative outlet.  I hope that like any project, that you all continue to support and help me achieve more of those hopes and dreams that I will continue to share with you through Charmed Crown.

Happy New Year friends!


  1. Thanks for sharing and all the very best as you seek to achieve even more this year on your blog and in your personal life. I never chose a word really but my aim this year is to monetize my blog as much as I can.

  2. What a great way to embrace the new year. Achieve this word may be my word too as I move to achieve my goals both in blogging and in life. Thanks for sharing.
