I Don’t Like Picking A World Of The Year, But If I Must, This Would Be It

Word of the year

 

Did you get brain washed into picking a word of the year?

 

Spoiler alert: I did.

 

I mean, I see the charm of setting a self-fulfilling prophecy word, the kind of theme word to help set goals + intentions for the upcoming twelve months. I get why people everywhere go Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs for this ritual. 

 

The part I can’t wrap my finger around is the practical aspect of this. How the hell do people pick ONE, just ONE word? Really? Is that even possible? Who can make that kind of long-game commitment? My respects to them. Seriously.

 

I’ve never been able to make that kind futuristic declaration, until I pretended this was a life n’ death reality show where my survival depended on an answer. And then, the word magically descended from the heavens. Amen!

  

If you’re curious to know which word I picked, play the video!

 

 

If you had to pick a world of the year, what would be it?

 

As always, thanks for watching + helping me spread the word.

 

Talk to you soon.

    I freaking LOVE this one!!!!!!!! You seem fiercer lately, and I like it.

  • Did you just curse; twice?! Haha! I love your attitude lady!! 💖☺ I have been trying to come up with a word of the year, and just one is hard to choose because I am a multipotentialite. So maybe my word should be EMBRACE! I should embrace the multi passionate person that I am. Also, Mayi + April = AWESOMENESS!! ❤❤❤

    Hola Mayi, me encanta tu video, me inspiras y motivas muchisimo. Tu energía, alegría y frescura se transmiten a través de tus vídeos. Uno crece y entiende que el que dirán … ya no importa más (las personas somos así … criticonas), también entendí que critican en base al dolor o la incapacidad que tienen para lograr lo que otros se animan con esfuerzo y dedicación. Somos únicos e irrepetible … así que las personas negativas de nuestro al rededor, no sólo nos sirven para saber lo diferente que somos, sino que nos ayudan a evolucionar y rodearnos de gente linda como uno. Me encantan todos tus dibujos, tenes un don y ocurrencia especial. Besote enorme.

      Veronica que lindaaaa. Gracias por tus palabras de apoyo. Significan tanto para mi.

      Me encantó tu perspectiva de “personas negativas”. La verdad es que son necesarias. Nos recuerdan. Nos reafirman. Nos ayudan a evolucionar. Sabias palabras.

    I needed to hear these words so badly I played the video twice! Thank you! Yes, I care way too much what people think and hate to rock the boat. Recently, I was publicly attacked by someone close to me for having an opinion that happened to be just different than hers. It’s been difficult and it has made me really sad but having several others stand up for me has lifted me up. I feel that as long as my heart is in the right place and my motivation for speaking up is rooted in love (for my kids, for my community, for others in general), I’m not going to be able to be quiet anymore. It’s not easy because I prefer to avoid conflict but know I have to be true to myself.

      Marieke I had a similar experience happen to me a couple of weeks back. It make me break down in tears. Felt embarrased even apologetic for speaking my mind. It takes a while, to own our voice. I think you hit the nail when you said, “I feel that as long as my heart is in the right place and my motivation for speaking up is rooted in love (for my kids, for my community, for others in general), I’m not going to be able to be quiet anymore.” OHHH YEAH! I could not agree more.
