One Word for the New Year | 2020 Edition

Hello, 2020.

Let's get right to it. I've got a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it.

My One Word for the New Year is TOGETHER. As usual, the word has layers of meaning for me. When I thought about the last half of 2019, I knew something had to change. Drastically. I knew that I needed to get my shit together.

The phrase "Get your shit together" is obviously more than one word, so I dropped it to TOGETHER. I'm determined to get it together in 2020 in a few different areas of my life:

  • Health and well-being (see yesterday's post)
  • Making writing and creating a priority again
  • Author life maintenance and book promotion
  • Finances
  • The family schedule (I just spent almost two hours calendaring)
  • De-cluttering and simplifying around our home
  • Taxes (We will NOT file an extension this year!)

TOGETHER also signifies spending more time with the people I love most. More time of better quality. When I'm TOGETHER with them, I want to be PRESENT with them.

And, of course, there are songs that will remind me, primarily "All Together Now" and "Come Together" by the Beatles. But let's not forget about "Love Will Keep Us Together" by Captain & Tennille, "Together Forever" by Rick Astley, and "We're All in This Together" from High School Musical. You're welcome.

Suck it, 2019. I'm going to get my shit TOGETHER in 2020 and kick some ass.

How about you? What's your One Word for the year?

Please enjoy this kickass version of "Come Together" from Gary Clark, Jr.
