    Open: My One Word 2022

    Where do I even begin to explain all that has happened since I last wrote here? In truth, I really don’t know. My body fell apart. BRCA2 reared its ugly head. I was cracked open and I’ve done my level best just to keep walking since. Step by step. Day by day. Healing. Getting stronger. […]

  • 2021 Intention Journaling: One Word

    Every year I spend the week between Christmas & New Years doing some self-reflection and journaling. Looking back at where I’ve come in the last 12 months. What worked and what didn’t.

    The Magic of 2019

    I’m feeling a little broadsided that it is the first week of 2020, you guys! I mean, I watched the days tick by on the calendar but it still seems a little mindblowing. The last decade of my life flew by! It’s hard to believe that I have lived in my little valley longer than […]

  • Purpose: to live deliberately... my word for 2017 | Gypsy Magpie

    My One Word for 2017

    Hello 2017! It feels so strange to say that, and yet so wonderful too. 2016 wasn’t a horrible year for me, but it wasn’t a fabulous one either. There were no huge defeats and no great triumphs. It just sort of was. I felt stagnant and hopeful at the same time. I wanted to move […]

  • My One Word 2016: Focus

    The New Year is here! A fresh start, a new beginning, and another word. I have been thinking about my One Word for 2016 for over a month and the same concept keeps coming back to me. It must be a boomerang because I throw it away and it comes right back. That dang word […]
