33 Intention Words for 2019

To kick-start this school year, we created My Intent bracelets one night at youth group. These bracelets featured a metal washer on them imprinted with a word that served as our intention. There are several definitions for intention, including "a thing intended; an aim or plan." Before this activity, I had never thought of an intention as both the goal and the plan to reach the goal.

I chose peace as my word of intention because that was something I was in need of this past semester. At the start of 2019, I would like to choose a new word for this new year and new semester. As I work to simplify my life, I feel that choosing a single word or phrase will simplify and help give me more direction than making a long list of several New Years' resolutions. Plus, choosing a word will give me a theme and allow me to add and remove goals as I see fit.

So I wanted to share some simple words or phrases that would make great self-descriptors or life themes for 2019:

1. Less is More

2. Self-Love

4. Boss

6. Grateful

7. Grace

8. Be Kind

9. Create

10. Trust

11. Warrior

12. Joy

13. Enough

14. Strength

15. Be Still

16. Courage

17. Breathe

18. Resilient

19. Explore

20. Give

21. Be Present

22. Confidence

23. Worthy

24. Forward

25. Open

26. Balance

27. Listen 

28. New

29. Let Go

30. Rest

31. Surrender

32. Authentic

33. Simple

My hope is that by sharing these words that you will be inspired to choose your own word of intention. If you haven't connected to any of these words, I challenge you to reflect and create your own word of intention. If you are stuck, I suggest answering these reflection questions or taking the word quiz. What will you choose?
