8. My theme for 2019

At a time of year when most people set resolutions, I’ve decided to set an INTENTION centred around a single word. This year, I have decided the theme will be ‘Strength.’ Based on my ongoing experience of holding a yearly theme, this small but mighty word will help inform my decisions and focus my efforts, especially in times of difficulty.
