Each year I try to focus on a word that I keep in the front of my mind throughout the duration of the year. I started this in 2018 as a phrase that paid homage to my children & I’s most overplayed song according to Spotify (we didn’t need a Year in Review to know that though based on the many kitchen dance parties we had). “Shake It Off” was the phrase that I needed as I went through a transformational time in my life and big changes I, at the time, didn’t think I was prepared for. Spoiler alert: I was more prepared than I gave myself credit.
