2022 word of the year

Happy 2022, friends! I know it’s been a hot minute. Not gonna lie — COVID-19 fatigue and MS fatigue played a big factor in my lack of activity here over the past year. But that doesn’t mean that it has to stay that way (although it seems like the pandemic shows no signs of letting up anytime soon). With a new year comes a reinvigorated passion to create new habits.

Which brings me to my Word of the Year for 2022: “empowered.” This year, I want to remember the power that I have to control my own destiny (with God on my side, of course).

I felt it was only right that I present to you my Word of the Year in this Wednesday Word. I’ve decided that “overcome” is it for me — mood all 2021.

As you know, I published my first solo book, Jesus Year, at the end of 2020. The main reason I decided to write about my journey with multiple sclerosis was to support, help and encourage others who have been newly diagnosed with MS or another chronic illness. It became clear that order to get the word out about my book — and reach said audience to create real impact in their lives — I would need to step out of my comfort zone and overcome many things. Overcome my fear of public speaking. Overcome my hesitancy to be in the spotlight. Overcome the self-limiting beliefs that stopped me from pursuing my passions so many times before.

What I mean is, this year will be the year that I beat, conquer, defeat, master, prevail (over), subdue, surmount, take, triumph (over), upend, win (against) and the other powerful adjectives when it comes to all the things that try to prevent me from walking in my purpose and living my life fully. Watch me overcome!
